A very rare thing happened this weekend. I have my own house to myself. No kids and husband. Just me and the dog. It's lovely and I know I should be going out and having fun but instead I just felt like staying home, knitting, listening to podcasts and making my favorite soup. Split Pea and Ham from The New Basics Cookbook
This is the only recipe I really cook from this book as you can see by the split binding.
It takes a good couple of hours to make but it's the best. Carrots, leeks, onion, celery, spinach are all part of this soup. It just has to be good for you.
Never mind the fat from the ham hocks...
Or the dash of Sherry at the end. Soups on!
