Excellent Soup Recipe

photo courtesy of
I have made this soup several times and it always impresses me. It is very flavorful and so healthy. In fact, today I made it without the bacon (even though I cooked some and added it to our bowls with the soup) because husband is doing the Daniel Fast and doesn't eat meat and it was still delish! Now, as with most recipes, I always have to add more salt and other seasonings. :)

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup (I cooked mine on the stove today) from

3 qts. water
1/2 lb. bacon, cut in pieces
1 tsp. sea salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp. pepper
3 carrots, chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
3 c. canned tomatoes
1/4 tsp. cumin seasoning, or to taste (we used way more than this b/c we like it spicy)
1/4 tsp. garlic salt, or to taste
1 med onion, chopped

(Today we added some artichoke sliced and put in red pepper as well)

Put in at night, ready for noon meal. Let cook on low all night. Very good.

Today I have been slow at getting my chores done, but things aren't too terribly messy, so it really doesn't matter too much. I did clean the kitchen, which makes everything look better, cleaned our bedroom, which included putting most of my maternity clothes up and replacing them with my regular clothes, emptied all the trashes, and straightened the bathroom. Dh has the older 2 kids at my MIL's for one more swimming escapade before the cooler temps come. Younger son is napping and baby is nursing contentedly. She is a really big eater and it is showing! I can already tell she is growing!! I have mixed feelings bout that! :) :(
I did put up my Fall decor on my mantle of which I shall leave you with a picture! Hope you are having a blessed Saturday!


  1. I went fall shoping today. I can't wait to get some of my things out. Ella is so cute!! I love your fireplace, (I wish that I had one. )

  2. This is definitely going on my menu plan this week. Or maybe I'll save it for next week when Mom is here.

    Your fireplace looks adorable. Is that a chalk board pumpkin?


I love and welcome your comments. Please be nice.
