Why I like this:

If I could eat this all the time I would. I like the taste of the rice and peas with the Porkchops. However, you must have the Porkchops to flavor the rice and peas. But my favorite part is the rice and peas.

History of Some Ingredients:

Tomato Soup was sold for ten cents a can when it first came out.

The first butter factories appeared in New York in the late 1850's and early 1960's.

Peas are a legume that originated in Western Asia and has been a staple food since ancient times.

Tradition:

My great grandma was the first one to start making this recipe. We usually only eat it for a Saturday lunch. I like my mom's version of this the best because my grandma doesn't put enough tomato soup in it.
