Split Pea Soup

We don’t get many rainy days in Colorado, so I really look forward to them.  Today we were treated to a rare rainy day.  I made split pea soup and took Einstein on a walk along the Platte River while the flavors in the soup melded together.  This soup is filled with flavor and makes enough for four.  It freezes well, so I usually make a double batch, freeze half and save it for when the snow falls as an apres ski treat.

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried organic oregano
