Split Pea Soup

Soup is always in season for me. I am sure I have said that a time or two. I love to keep soup in my fridge at all times. Pouring a bowl of a healthy soup that is homemade and wholesome just pleases me. Split pea has always been my favorite. Unfortunately it doesn't picture well, but I promise, the soup is divine!
