Split Pea Soup

Thanks to my sister for this recipe!  I love a good split pea soup and this one didn't disappoint.  It's fun that as she gets older (and graduating from BYU this spring!!) that we get closer together.  I guess that means I'm getting older too.  It's the big 3-0 this year for me.  I used to think that was old.

Split Pea Soup 

1 lb dried split peas
8-9 cups broth (I used 5 cups broth and 3 cups water)
4 carrots, chopped
3 medium potatoes, chopped (I used the 2 I had on hand)
3 celery stocks, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients on the stove top and cook on medium to medium-high until peas and vegetables are soft.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

I did omit the ham from their recipe.  It was perfect, especially since we ate this when it was raining outside.

Wait.  I live in Portland.  Rain?

Their recipe calls for a crockpot, which you certainly could do and have a stress-free day.  On low for 7-8 hours or on high for 3-4.
