Spring Split Pea Soup

And the countdown’s really begun: passed my comps! Turning in my thesis this week! Only one minor thing in the way–a 20 page paper on Chaucer. Oof. Not that Chaucer’s all that bad, per se, but not my forte in literature. We’ll see how that one goes. Busy busy busy, but it looks like the end is in sight!

This isn’t really a recipe, since I followed Susan V’s almost to the t, but it is a beautiful and fridge/pantry cleaning soup that helped bridge the chilly nights and warmer days we’re having. Though split pea soup is definitely a more winter-y dish for me, for some odd reason it just felt right this past week since Roanoke can’t decide if it wants to be humid and hot or fifty degrees and raining. Served with some brown bread from the Moosewood Low-Fat Favorites book, it hit the spot. Bless soup, it’s just so good.

    This year is the year of eating out the larder, and split peas is amongst the many legumes I have floating around. I LOVE split pea soup. And this is England, so you can pretty much count on in being soup weather any time of the year.
