I love split pea soup. My favorite part of Thanksgiving is afterwards when my dad uses the leftover smoked turkey to make split pea soup. It’s great with ham of course, but I’ve never heard of anyone else making it with smoked turkey. It’s excellent, really compliments the rest of the dish.M's better than one can imagine scratch made split pea soup; and our regular house salad of cuke, tomato, romaine, sweet red pepper, and crimini mushrooms. The avocados from Mexico are not quite ripe yet, so we had to do without that .
