Oh my goodness… it’s been 7 months since my last blog post! I’d like to give you all a list of excuses, but truth be told, I just got lazy. Hope you can forgive me! Hope you can also forgive how rusty this post might be. I’m out of practice! I’ve made a New Years resolution to start writing more. Bear with me, please.
So, it’s freezing here in the Land of Liz. We’ve had a very mild winter so far and my body just can’t seem to adjust to this cold snap. I can’t get the chill out of my bones and the only cure I can think of is a huge vat of split pea soup! Yes, I know that for many people, the thought of split pea soup conjures up images of Linda Blair’s head spinning around, but if you can get past that visual, I highly suggest trying this awesome soup.
This is such an easy and cheap recipe! I had a bag of split peas that I soaked overnight, a leftover ham bone from Christmas dinner, an onion and some carrots. Next thing I know…. I had soup! Ok, maybe it wasn’t that easy but, close!
