Soup-a-Palooza: Split Pea & Ham Soup
I looked around for a recipe but couldn’t really find one that I could commit too. They had herbs I don’t own or were unfamiliar with. I’m on a budget. I can’t afford to be getting new herbage. So I took a gamble and put what I thought would taste good. My bone had a lot of meat on it so what I really came out with was split pea and ham soup. What I came up with was delicious.
1 leftover ham bone (or some diced ham)
½ pkg of bacon, cooked & crumbled
I garnished mine with a dollop of sour cream and served with a side of crusty bread. The fiancé doesn’t have to unload the dishwasher ALL week, but he said he would anyways because he loves me (and he knows how to put me in a good mood). This soup is ugly, but soooooo yummy!
