Split Pea and Ground Beef Soup (Slow-Cooker)

Old-fashioned goodness !  Split Pea Soup loaded with Ground Beef made easily in the Slow-Cooker

This is what it looked like this morning when I opened my door - cold and really miserable, ugghh (sigh) BUT, perfect for my slow-cooker Split Pea and Ground Beef Soup !



And look at the tree .. so bare .. no leaves. Winter is really here .. duh, Linda, Autumn ends in 9 days!

Most people, (I'm one of them !), complain during Summer "..it's too hot.." and "..I can't stand this heat any longer.."


Then of course, we wish for Winter ".. because you can layer.." . Nonsense, no matter how many layers of clothes we put on .. it's still COLD ! And guess what?? We wish for Summer ... that's life.

Today is also my daughter's first day at a real job .. she matriculated last year, but wants to work while studying. I felt so bad for her this morning, I mean, really, first day at work and the weather is like this! But as she has a awesome good Mom, she was taught to layer.

Right, just to be fair, I felt bad for my son as well. He left an hour earlier than his sister. Even though they are no longer little kids, Mommy still wants to keep them warm and close .. don't we all?

On a day like today, soup is a good, comforting kinda thing to have. My granny used to make us some Split Pea Soup - when it was cold or we were ill. I have fond memories of curling up somewhere with a good book and Gran would make this soup.

Now this was when I was still in primary school (mentioning "primary school" to make a point - even as a kid I loved this green soup). Why don't kids like green stuff anyway? My son hates anything green, always .. but not this Split Pea Soup.

  1. Hi Linda,
    I was confused when I started reading your post about autumn ending in 9 days because spring is just starting here. But then I looked at your profile and saw you live in South Africa! The soup looks good. I'm a vegetarian but I'll bet it would be good without the meat, too. Thanks for the recipe.

    2. Thanks Jennifer, the Internet really throws around the Seasons ! We have had this without any meat as well and it is still great. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
