Instant Pot Black Eyed Pea Soup

Instant Pot Black Eyed Pea Soup

Have you ever tried making Black Eyed Peas in your Instant Pot? Or any dry beans from scratch, for that matter? If you haven’t, you’ve been missing out on MAJOR savings! We make dried beans a couple times a week in the Instant Pot. Utilizing vegan meals like this Instant Pot Black Eyed Pea Soup can save you a bundle at the grocery store by cutting out the two most expensive things in the grocery store, meat and dairy! 

Instant Pot Black Eyed Pea Soup

When I started Instant Loss we were a 1 income family with a grocery budget of $150 every two weeks for a family of 5. I was only able to achieve this by increasing our plant based foods and decreasing our animal products. To this day, we still eat two plant based meals a day and only one a day that contains meat and/or dairy. 

This is one of our staple, go-to soups. If you have an 8-quart Instant Pot, you can double this soup and freeze a batch for later! 

This Black Eyed Pea Soup is very light but incredibly filling. If you have a family full of meat eaters, I suggest browning a pound of pork sausage and throwing that in with all the other ingredients before you pressure cook for an added richness that will make everyone happy!

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
