Today I made this yummy split pea soup! I used half of the split peas in this bag so the split peas themselves cost $1.10.
Yesterday, I used up some ham that I had packaged up that I wrote about in another blog. http://simplyfrugalynne.blogspot.com/2015/03/saving-money-on-hamlunch-meat-make.html
I used the meat for sandwiches for 6 people yesterday and then I used the rest of the bone in part to boil into this soup. It was $1.58 lb and this part with the bone was probably two pounds when I pulled it out of the freezer so once the meat was cut off for sandwiches, let's say one pound, is a total of $1.58 for the ham.
I added celery flakes, garlic, salt and pepper.
After yesterday's sandwiches, these were leftover so I warmed them up to go with the soup for .45.
