Split Pea and Ham Soup

Split Pea and Ham Frustration
Inspired by Eileen’s site this week, I bought a ham hock and a bag of split peas last night to make crock pot split pea and ham soup today. I put it in this morning and the whole house has been filled with the most wonderful smells. A few hours I ago I was researching remedies for cold sores, when I discovered that you should avoid foods high in arginine while having an outbreak. What has loads of arginine? PEAS. So I had scrambled eggs on toast for dinner while Snookums partook of my beautiful soup. At least I know that it freezes well, and it’ll still taste good in a few days when I’m all healed up. Still, MEGA FRUSTRATION.

  1. OH NO! Arginine? I’ll have to pass that one. Hubby will be devastated!

    Bet it was good too…

  2. Awww man, sorry RT! Seems like I’ve inspired a spilt pea craze- my sister texted me last night to say she ordered it a restaurant for the first time ever. It is soooo good! I hope you get to enjoy it soon.

  3. avoid chocolate, soy, tofu and vege-protein too (lentils etc) – the Boi gets them bad as well
