1lb of  leftover Christmas ham that has been picked over and set aside
1 1/2 lbs of dried split peas
2 chopped carrots
1 chopped onion
3 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon cracked pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon olive oil


Rinse, drain and pick over your peas.

Add peas to crock pot, cover with 3″ warm water and turn crock pot on high.

Add ham and cover.  Saute carrots and onions in olive oil until lightly browned, add minced garlic and saute for one minute longer.

Toss sautéed goodness over ham and pea mixture.  Add salt, pepper and thyme. Stir and replace lid.

Set it and forget it.  Come back 6 hours later and eat until your belly is nice and full.

Serve with leftover rolls you brought home from your Mother’s Christmas Eve dinner party.  Enjoy.
