    Saute up a large onion and a few cloves of garlic in some butter and olive oil for about 5 minutes...then drop in some (3 each) chopped celery and carrots.

    Let that all saute for about 10-15 minutes.

    Get yer Holiday Hambone (@HAL) out, grab a quart of chicken stock and a pound of split peas that you soaked for a couple of hours then rinsed and drained.

    Drop that BONE in the pot, add the split peas, the chicken stock, a bay leaf, some rosemary and some S&P.

    After about 45 mins...looks like baby puke, but have no fear.

    After about an hour, take out the BONE and trim all the available good meat off...If you need more, it's a good thing like me you saved some extra and yer sick of ham sandwiches anyway.

    I made this last year with the leftover ham bone from easter and it gave me the worst gas of my life. I sounded like a wounded elephant and it was so putrid I was grossing myself out :facepalm:

    Add the chopped up ham and let cook for another 30 mins, stirring frequently to make sure them peas split to their maximum potential. That's more like it. Add some more S&P to taste if you like.

    Holy shit! You'll be eating that for a month.

    You need to look into recipes for single dudes.

    Toast up some crusty bread, slap some butter on it and give it the old stand-up test. Fuck yeah!

    It's the split peas. You really have to soak those bastards overnight then cook the hell out of them. They expand in the gut if not cooked properly.

    I checked out like 5 different recipes...some said soak them overnight, some said an hour, some said nothing about it at all....cook 45mins/cook 2 hours etc. etc. I went down the middle and soaked them for 2 hours and then cooked for 1 1/2...came out great. :dontknow:
