YELLOW SPLIT PEA WITH HAM!
Let me tell you a funny story about Split Pea with Ham soup. A friend made it for a neighborhood get-together a long time ago - it was her grandfather's recipe - and delicious! It involved a ham bone and cooking all day in the crockpot. I loved it, having never had Split Pea Soup before. It was so good to me, and realizing there was much more than just peas in it, I knew my family would love it too.
So I thought I would start a new tradition - Split Pea Soup for Christmas Eve dinner! It's GREEN, it's delicious - how much fun that would be? My kids were about 9, 7, and 3 years of age. They would probably tell you I DAMAGED THEM FOR LIFE. What were you thinking, Mom??? I was just looking for something fun and different (and easy with all the other Christmas goings on). So my awesome new tradition was BUSTED.
