This one might be a repeat for some, but I thought I’d show it again.  Yum!  I’ll be making some new ones soon.

Split Pea soup & Pigs in a blanket

Pigs in a blanket I think we all know how to make.  These are croissants with ham & cheese wrapped up and baked in the oven.   My split pea soup is a ham bone put in my crock pot with split peas soaking all night, pieces of ham and sliced onion and a small stalk of celery chopped up, one clove of garlic and cooked for five hours on low stirring occasionally until thickened.  mmmmm  mmmmm  Bona petite!!!  Darn now I’m going to have to make some.  I usually wait for colder weather though. mmm

Link up an old pic folks! No rules, other than that.   Sign the linky & let me come & see your Flash from the Past & your Recipes!   Here’s mine!

    I love looking at old photos. Sometimes when I go see my parents, we all like to look through the old albums.


    Hi Marie, I do love pea soup in the fall and winter months. I love the old photos that you always post up too. Have a nice fall weekend.


    That is so vintage and I love it!


    5 hours in low heat? hmmmm.. I’ll try sometime soon! 🙂


    This may sounds crazy, but I’ve never hard pea soup! I do make pigs in a blanket though my kiddos love them. Sometimes we even put hotdogs in place on the ham 🙂


      Actually I use to do the dogs too and do when the kids come over. They love them, but Split Pea Soup is made with ham, and I thought the ham would go better with the soup. I tried it and it worked quite well hubby loved them. Whenever I make stuff up & hubby says what are we having I just say, “MOODY SURPRISE”! (Moody is our last name) and he just goes OHHHHHHHHH. hehehehe household chuckle I guess. Have a great day!


    never had^^ sorry typo


    The big in a blanket looks like a neat snack. It’s so cool how you seamlessly incorporate flashback photos in your past. It’s nice to see the old photos and appreciate.


    Old photos and comfort food- thank you for the warm fuzzies! Makes me excited for family time during the holiday season.


    Oh, pigs in a blanket! I haven’t made those in forever, and just happen to have mini hot dogs in my fridge now…looks like I know what is for dinner!


    That looks so good and with the weather cooling off, it’s very timely! I love that you use a ham bone!


      Yes, hubby wouldn’t have it any other way, but he loves lots of meat in there too! hehehe I love lots of celery in there too, and I use celery salt instead of regular salt when seasoning. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. You have so many great recipes you need to post some some time 🙂 Thanks Liz.


    I said to my wife yesterday, i want Split Pea soup with ham.. and there you have it you posted it!


    I have a soft spot for vegetable soups, this looks like a classic that we should try! Thanks for sharing, and I’m happy to join in on your bloghop!

    Split pea soup. Yum! I love the 1970’s photos. The big hair is awesome.


    That split pea soup looks delish. I used to dislike it until a few years ago.
