Split Pea Soup

Sometimes I like to see if I can go just another day without going to the grocery store. Usually I can wait and cook something from items I have on hand. This is one of those things and it did delay the Sendik's run by a day.

In the slowcooker:
1 pkg rinsed yellow split peas
1 onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
2 bay leaves
carton of chicken broth

Turned it on low and let it cook all day. Before serving I sauteed some Trader Joe's chicken apple sausage and topped it with that. It was hearty and warm!

The picture is the soup in a lunch container for a subsequent day. It worked well for quite a few lunches as well as a dinner.
