  1. Velva, Great looking split pea soup! My wife and I both love great split pea soup and she usually whips up a batch or two each winter…enough for 6 – 8 bowls each time. Love your pork roast even more. Pork is my favorite! As for Miami…too much traffic and hassle…but great attractions and lots of terrific restaurants! Mid-winter…it's hard to beat! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave


  2. I can't believe this entire winter I haven't made Split Pea Soup once! I LOVE pea soup and now that you have reminded me, Velva, I really need to make it before Spring begins!!! (although, spring pea soup is yummy too:) Thank you so much for the reminder, and sharing…


  3. Split pea and ham is one of my favorite soups, I love the stuff. Hated peas as a kid but now creamed peas and this dish are two of my favorites. Oooo I've got a half pound of jowl bacon on hold, maybe I should make split pea and bacon.


  4. Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table,but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.Mango Juice Manufacturers


  5. I always save ham bones for split pea soup. It's a perfect marriage! I love your version and it makes me want to go buy a ham so I'll have to bone to make this soup! Great post, Velva! 🙂
