"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Frugal Meal Friday: Split Pea Soup

This is a tried and true recipe of mine that I have been making for years.  I think I could make this with my eyes closed!  It is delicious and very frugal.  This recipe just barely feeds my family of 6, so if you have a larger family then you'll need to double (or whatever) this.


1 lb. split peas, rinsed
2 ham hocks or 1 meaty hambone or a couple cups chopped cooked ham
3 carrots, thinly sliced
1 stalk celery (including leaves), chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
1 T. parsley
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1-1/2 quarts hot water

Put all ingredients into a crock pot and stir gently.  Cook on low for 10-12 hours or high 6-8 hours.  Delicious!  Serve with bread and a tossed salad.
