Way back at the beginning of February I made Brown Sugar Squash and Brussels Sprouts. The same night I made Cheating on Winter Pea Soup. I was running out the door to teach a class so I had to leave the finishing touches to my hubster. I passed off the immersion blender with not quite specific instructions and ran out the door. He was so sweet and even took a few pictures for me.
I told my students what I had been cooking and they thought the name was really funny.
This soup came together very quickly and was surprisingly tasty. I don't believe I have tried pea soup before simply because it looks kind of gross but I am glad I made this. My daughter liked it, my hubs liked it, and my little man was not a big fan. The addition of bacon bits kept this from being a completely vegetarian meal which suited my carnivore hubs. :)
