Dinner Tonight

MMmmmmm homemade split pea soup for dinner!

Poor Jeremy is probably getting so sick of soup but it's really the only thing that always sounds good for me! I've been making him dinners then can't eat a bite :( So soup has become a regular around here these days, which is so funny because normally I hate soup. But baby B must love it :) The hot broth just feels so good for my nausea!!!! 

We had a fun little family dinner on Christmas Eve (the 3 of us :) But we have TONS of ham left over, so split pea soup is what's for dinner!

Recipe : 
(keep in mind I was just dumping stuff in so this is the "basic" idea)

1 lb dry split peas
ham hock 
2 cups chopped ham
1 chopped onion
2 chopped carrots
2 cups chopped celery
4 cups Chicken Stock (should have made it but didn't this time)
2 cups of water
Salt, pepper, a bay leaf, dried thyme, oregano and parsley (how ever much you want!) 

Throw it in the crock pot on low, near the end take the bone out. Most of the ham on it will have fallen off. Serve with yummy bread!!!!!

Happy Day after Christmas!

Hahaha! I can't believe you said baby B! That's what we have been calling ours for the past few months.
