OK, tomorrow’s turkey day indulgence aside, lately Jeremy and I have been eating healthier but also tastier! Case in point – this split pea soup recipe. Did I mention that it’s got bacon in it? And on top? What about the goat cheese crouton? Oh we haven’t talked about that yet? Well, let’s get to it!
