Hearty Pea Soup
Here's my favorite pea soup! I made this just a few days ago, and it was perfect as the weather is starting to have a bit of chill in it. I have been making this recipe for about 15 years, and I got it from Laurel's Kitchen. I like all the added vegetables--they really make this soup filling. All you need to do is make some muffins or cornbread and add a salad and you have a great fall dinner.
