Freezing Fog and Pea Soup

img_0851

Picture this, with a gray background.  For about a week now it has been the view from my kitchen window.  But as you can see, the fog is begining to lift.  But it is still very cold out there.  Don’t get me wrong, it is very pretty, but white…white…white.  I needed of some color.  And some soup.  Green, I think.

Super Simple Spit Pea Soup

1 lb package of dried split peas, green, yellow or combo, rinsed and sorted

chopped onion, chopped carrot, garlic

Throw it all in the pot and cover with 6-8 cups of water, chicken stock or a combination of.    Simmer, with the lid tilted off to the side, for 45 min to an hour.  Serve as is, smash it with a potato masher, run it through a counter top blender or use an immersion blender.  You can add a ham bone, left over ham or pork when you start the pot.  But if you do…..PLEASE remember to remove the bone.  Blenders don’t like bones very well.

I had some cheese/garlic bread sticks (from the day old rack at the grocery store) and yum……just the thing to warm me up.
