Personal Notes:
Anyone crazy enough to marry into the family must first pass the "Split Pea Soup Test". Mom runs the test. If the potential member finds the soup palatable, he/she is "in"! Actually, we love it. Especially Rod. But then, he passed the test.

I like to add sliced carrots with the celery and potatoes.
