    Still feeling a bit crappy. Plus, I'm headed out to attend another DS company party tonight. I think I'll pick up a pizza.

    It's cold and dreary here today. It's a good soup day!:D

    I have Crock Pot Split Pea w/ Sausage Soup going - but instead of sausage, I'm using the meaty hambone I saved from Sunday.

    It smells so good already - I'm wishing I could have a bowl for lunch!

    To be perfectly honest, the only thing that sounds good at the moment is donuts. I won't be having any, but that's what sounds good. Why is it always donuts?

    MMMMM - My mom used to always make this, but since we moved to New England she hasn't. Always hated it as a kid, but have been craving it for about a year now.

    Here's the recipe I use from Allrecipes.com...with my changes in red!

    * 1 pound dried split peas
    * 10 cups water I use 8 cups chicken broth - no water)
    * 1 pound smoked sausage of your choice, sliced Good with ham too!
    * 5 cubes chicken bouillon (don't use this)
    * 1 1/2 cups chopped carrot I use 2 cups
    * 1 cup chopped celery
    * 2 potatoes, peeled and chopped
    * 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder I use two cloves, pressed in.
    * 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano I use Italian Seasoning
    * 2 bay leaves
    * 1 onion, chopped


    1. In a 5 quart slow cooker, combine the peas, water, sausage, bouillon, carrot, celery, potatoes, garlic powder, oregano, bay leaves, and onion.

    If you do not have a slow cooker, combine all ingredients in a large pot. Simmer over low heat for 2 to 3 hours, stirring often.

    I'm making Chicken Fajitas in the DCB for a show tonight. I won't be eating much. No idea what the family will have.

    I started my diet today. Blech.
     
Have something to add?
