Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

So what's in the crock pot?

Mondays we have dance class. You may remember that from a few weeks back. Classes start at 4:45 and end at 5:30; they're roughly half an hour away. I really don't want to start preparing dinner at 6 or later, which is where one of my cookbooks comes in handy.

This is adapted from Fix-It-And-Forget-It.

Split Pea Soup
3 cups dried split peas
2 quarts water
1 pound frozen carrot coins
1.25 pound ham steak
1 cup chopped onion--frozen is fine. This week we're out so it's dried minced, about 2 Tbls.
2 chicken boullion cubes

Put it all in on low for 8-9 hours.

The original recipe called for only 2 cups of peas; it was a little thin, I thought. I've also used Canadian bacon and these ham lumps he brought home. They had the bone in.
Since I'd never even had split pea soup before I made it, I'm pretty impressed.
And the color is a request from the newly-minted five-year-old boy around here.
