Yummy Soup

Today I am making a split pea/lentil soup.  The local Old Order Mennonite store has large bags of bulk stuff like this, lentils, yellow and green split peas with little alphabet noodles.  So I got a good sized bag and used a ham bone, carrots, celery, garlic, onion, some chicken stock, herbs and a can of spinach.  I'll make a side of the WW baking powder biscuits to go with.  That should have us tooting good for a day or two, LOL.

I found this online today. Ain't that the truth?

Ok, the soup turned out really good, reminded me of Italian Wedding soup minus the sausage. I bet it will be even better tomorrow!

The biscuits were good too though a bit crumbly.  I do feel better about eating whole wheat ones over the yummy white flour kind I could eat a whole pan of!
