“I love how easy it is to make split pea soup, and I never tire of it. I didn't have a ham bone, so I used ham I aleady had in my fridge in it's place. I always add a couple potatoes to every split pea soup recipe with the rest of the peas because it makes for great texture and flavor. Recipe courtesy of The Pillsbury Cookbook.”
