Thats whats on the menu today. My husband loves split pea soup, and I do too. Now if you are not a meat eater, skip the ham hocks, but they really add alot of flavor. I use this recipe , and I doubled it to have leftovers (already doubled for you)
2 cups of dry split peas (rinse and drain)
4 cups of chicken broth
2 cups of water
1-2 pounds of ham hocks
3 medium carrots
2 celery sticks (I skip these, noone likes these at our house)
1/2 cup of onion
Do all your chopping, rinsing. I cook mine in the crockpot so I don't have to watch it all day. I put the peas in, then the ham hocks, then the veggies, then the chicken broth and water. Finally add a dash of pepper. Then put in your crockpot on high heat for 5 to 6 hours. Delicious!
I must take a pic of it when its done, it is the rperfect savory meal in the fall
Pair it with a nice crusty bread
Another one of my fave fall soups is a clam chowder. My father-in-law makes the best in the world. Hands down. He made me a batch the last time he came so I could eat it for many weeks. And trust me I did.
I really love the etsy shop "Paper Pastries."
When I was a kid I thought it was the best thing in the world to get cool pencils, I still do.
