the one not so awesome thing about split pea soup is it doesn’t photograph well. let’s be honest, it looks like vomit.

i’m not sure if vomit and a food blog go together but seriously, really. you’re thinking the same thing right?

i know you are.

it seems i’ve got my sense of humor back? eh, possibly.

all i know is this perfect bowl of soup took all of 45 minutes to make from start to finish. fresh veg, homemade chicken stock, our favorite hot dogs.

i promise, your kids, they’ll love it. after they get over what it looks like of course…

sweet potatoes, a carrot, a large slice of onion…that’s all it takes. sweet, perfect, and delicious. a great combination for a cold and dark day.

plus, my kids love hotdogs.
