Notes

Usually DH makes the split pea soup in our house!! (He makes one wicked pot of split pea soup!! ) But I have a devil of a time getting him to do it!!! It's about the only time he ever spends in the kitchen and when he's making his soup, I vacate the premises! What a mess he can make and using every single pot and pan!! Don't ask me how one man can make such a mess and use so many different pans and dish!! As long as he cleans up his mess, I just stay far, far, far awya!!! :O) I do get hungry for split pea soup more often than he's willing to make it. So whenever leftover ham or a ham bone is available and I'm really in the mood, this is the best split pea soup recipe I make!!
