Split Pea Soup

Soup - Split Pea Soup (1)      Soup - Split Pea Soup (5)


Ok, this is really easy and really good.  It is great just to have around and you can really make it however you want, meaning you can put different stuff in it but I’m going to be putting ham in mine which is the traditional way.  I usually make it vegetarian so you can just leave out the ham if you want to. 


Every grocery store sells spilt peas in a 1 lb. bag on the same aisle as the dried beans.
