Annie,
Here's the recipe for split pea soup.  I know you probably can't put the ham in or use the ham stock.  Substitute chicken, but it won't be the same.
 
2T butter
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 C diced ham or 2 ham hocks (and ham bone if you have one)
1/2 lb. split peas
1 bay leaf
ham stock (I use "Better Than Bouillon" brand ham base and mix into boiling water)
fresh ground pepper
 
Put the butter, onion, carrots and celery into a pot.  Sweat for 10 mins. do not brown.  Add the split peas, ham or hocks, bay leaf and pepper.  Add enough stock to more than cover the ingredients, as the peas will absorb a lot while cooking.  I don't add salt because the ham base is salty. If you use ham hocks, remove them when the split peas are cooked, remove the rind and the bones and add the meat to the soup.  This makes about the same quantity as the potato leek soup.  Easy!!!

Thanks, Lisa! I will save this recipe for when Bob and I are on our own, which is soon! I also like the Better Than Bouillon ham base...and it sure does look easy! Thanks again.

Annie,
You're welcome!  Glad that you and Bob will soon be on your own.  You can eat bacon every day!!
 
Those Better Than Bouillon bases are really good.......I have lobster, clam, beef and ham.

I made a pea soup last year some time and used a bit of Better than Boullon Ham Base.
 
It ruined the soup for me.  Tasted porky... fake porky.

That's too bad.  I always have ham or ham hocks in the soup.......but instead of using plain water, I use a little bit of the ham base in the water......for a little added taste and for salt.  I never found it to taste fake porky.

I may have used too much.  Don't remember.  I also usually have ham bones in the freezer from the Thanksgiving ham or I buy ham hocks.
 
The ruined soup was following a recipe that used frozen peas for that bright green color instead of dry peas which I prefer.  I should just trust myself and not use new recipes that sound iffy.

We're talking Split Pea Soup......I never, ever heard of anyone using frozen or fresh peas!  Unfortunately the COLOR of split pea soup is not very beautiful......but the taste!  Ah the taste!  Is wonderful!

I know!  But that recipe I tried wasn't split pea... just pea.  Yucky, porky tasting pea.
 
My split pea soup is divine.  I don't do anything special to it.

Went to Farmerbrown's Little Skillet, a take-out lunch place serving expensive soul food in SF.  They're well loved around here.  I got their shrimp and grits, which were surprisingly bland (and I'm not a big spice fan!), but they had hot sauces available.  Grits were nice and gooey with cheese. http://www.littleskilletsf.com/#eat-together

I defrosted more Omaha Steaks burgers than I meant to for a recipe I'm creating, so I made myself an olive burger for lunch because I could. I love paper plates for lunch... less dishes to wash!

Looks great and I love that formica table top. Is it meant to be 'retro' or just plain 'old', like at my house!

That's my kitchen counter, and it's been there since it was installed in 1962.

I like using paper plates to measure out my spices when I following a recipe.  Looks like an artist's palatte (I'm stretching it) after loaded up with the spices.  Fold and everything into the pot!
 
I also put a paper plate between each of my China plates when I  put them back in the cupboard if I use them.  Helps prevent scratching.
 
They have their purpose!

We went to a new place that opened a couple of weeks ago in Gahanna called 101 Beer Kitchen.  Of course they have a HUGE beer selection......probably 101 kinds.......but also a decent wine list and full bar.  I wasn't too hungry so I went with the romaine wedge salad.  It had oven-roasted tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, Nueske bacon, chunks of bleu cheese and bleu cheese dressing.  It was excellent!

 
Michael had Macaroni and Cheese with Andouille and we split an order of house BBQ chips.  Both excellent!
 
MH had a Mt. Carmel Nut Brown Ale, I had a glass of pinot grigio.  There were so many interesting things on the menu that we will definitely be going back.

Looks good! This guy Michael must be a keeper. After all he did buy you a round trip ticket to Alaska. When my kids turned 18 I told them I would buy them a one way ticket to any place in the world.

He's not too bad as far as curmudgeons go........I guess I'll let him stick around a while longer.

Just 6 pieces of sushi?  That's less than I'm eating but I'm sure tastes better.
 
I want the macaroni and cheese and the dish it's in.

Annie,
Here's the recipe for split pea soup.  I know you probably can't put the ham in or use the ham stock.  Substitute chicken, but it won't be the same.
 
2T butter
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 C diced ham or 2 ham hocks (and ham bone if you have one)
1/2 lb. split peas
1 bay leaf
ham stock (I use "Better Than Bouillon" brand ham base and mix into boiling water)
fresh ground pepper
 
Put the butter, onion, carrots and celery into a pot.  Sweat for 10 mins. do not brown.  Add the split peas, ham or hocks, bay leaf and pepper.  Add enough stock to more than cover the ingredients, as the peas will absorb a lot while cooking.  I don't add salt because the ham base is salty. If you use ham hocks, remove them when the split peas are cooked, remove the rind and the bones and add the meat to the soup.  This makes about the same quantity as the potato leek soup.  Easy!!!
 

Lisa--ever made a version with yellow split peas? My mother's was always a yellow split pea soup. Her senior trip from a small Maine town was to Quebec, where she first had it that way, instead of the green split peas. I don't think she ever put carrots or celery in hers, and she just simmered the yellow split peas with the ham bone with a fair amount of meat on it in water--not stock. This soup was something she always made using the leftover Easter ham and ham bone. The only time I ever made pea soup was at the request of a BIL, when I was visiting and my sister had just had her first baby. I think I found a recipe in Joy of Cooking and used that. Mom never had a recipe, and I never paid really close attention to the details, because I don't like pea soup!

There were 8 pieces of sushi in the box.  I put 6 on the plate for the picture.  I put two back, ate 4 and saved 4 for tomorrow's lunch.  I wanted to eat them all, but I held back.  It wasn't easy.

Sorry you don't like split peas!  I have used yellow split peas but for some reason which I cannot justify I prefer the green ones.  Maybe they're just easier to find.
