Well, with the Fall weather beginning (HA !! 80 degrees this weekend !!) I went back to making my Split Pea Soup (with Bacon this week)
It has 16 ozs of green split peas.
The instructions on the bag say not to pre-soak them, but I have found that they cook much faster after being soaked. Overnight in this case.
1 pound of thick cut bacon fried to perfection !!!
Unfortunately, I was out of crushed red pepper flakes so I added a couple of squirts of Tabasco sauce for a little zing.
Have you ever seen anything more beautiful !!??!!
And of course, the finished product !
Peas $ 0 .99
Bacon $ 3.99
Crackers $ 1.00
