A comforting soup for a lousy day

Fall days are usually pretty nice, but the dreary ones do visit once in a while (or maybe I was coming down with a cold). Either way, I postponed my previous dinner plans (something from the Caribbean just wasn't going to happen) and opted for an old fashioned split pea soup.

I was going to chicken out and just make a tube of Manischewitz, but instead, I tossed the "soup mix" packet in the trash and used the dried split peas as a starting point. I really like the peas from Manischewitz because they're not only split, they're quartered. This means that the peas dissolve very nicely and you don't end up with chunks of split peas on your spoon. If I didn't happen to have the package lying around, I probably would've pulsed regular split peas in the food processor until they were a little more broken up.

The soup itself turned out okay. I might do a bit more in terms of the broth next time, however, serving it with a sweet and cheesy bread did the trick.
