Split Pea Anyone?

I know you've been anxiously awaiting my next blog but I was holding out for something spectacular and I think I found it.

I've heard all kinds of complaints from Moms over the years about the picky eaters they have in their families. Or how their kids simply won't eat anything but macaroni and cheese (without the peas). I think I was guilty of that as a kid but that was then this is now. Anyhow, I guess I have really been lucky so far, because my girls are not picky eaters and tonight for the first time, I gave them Split Pea with Ham and Bacon soup. I really glorified the green, slimy soup by adding some unsalted crackers and without any coaxing or bribing, down the hatch it went. Holly only had about 5 mouthfuls and then gagged so I decided she had enough but Gabby, now she seemed to enjoy each bite. I think I was just as surprised as you.

Will the next time be so easy? Will the green, goopy soup look as appetizing as tonight? If not, I won't complain. At least I can say my girls ate Split Pea Soup and enjoyed it. Not too many Moms can brag about that.
