At least once a week I break out my crockpot for something special. This past week I decided to go with an old tried and true favorite – Split Pea Soup! My great-aunt used to make this all the time when I was younger and I loved it even then. Now I make it vegetarian style, but it’s still just as delicious!
While dinner was finishing up, my husband came home from work and was particularly excited. When I asked him what was up he said:
“I caught a whiff of the most delicious food about a block away and I said to myself “I hope that’s our house, I hope that’s our house, I hope that’s our house” the rest of the way home. Then I opened the front door. You are the best!”
Not too shabby for putting a few ingredients in the crock-pot and calling it a day! Whenever we have soup, we like to pair it with cornbread and sometimes a salad. This time, the hearty split pea soup and cornbread was just enough!
