Split Pea Soup

You will need a crock pot.

1 leftover ham bone, ham hock or 1 cup diced ham
1 - 1 1/2 cups dry split peas
1 can low sodium chicken broth
3 cups water
1 TBSP chicken bullion
1 large carrot - chopped
1 large yellow onion - chopped
1 small russet potato - peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic - peeled and chopped
2 bay leaves
1 tsp dried majoram

Place the ham bone in crock pot - cover with peas, veggies, broth and water and seasonings. Do not mix together.
Cook on low all day or on high for 4 to 5 hours. Before serving, stir together removing bone pieces and bay leaves.

Try cheese bread as a side. Take a loaf of french bread and cut long ways down the middle. Lay both halves on a baking sheet. Spread each side with a layer of softened butter - top that with ranch dressing, grated cheese, garlic powder, pepper and parsley. Bake at 350 until the cheese is melted.
