Split Pea Soup

Rain, cold and did I just hear that weatherman say
"chance of snow?"
Time to stir a pot of Split Pea Soup,
make a loaf of crusty bread
and call it dinner tonight. 
I start with a 16 ounce package of dried peas that have been washed and "old maids" removed.  Add 6 - 7 cups of chicken bouillon.  Then I add 1 cup ham leftovers chopped, 1/4 cup diced onions and finely 1/2 cup chopped carrots.  Simmer on low, stirring and use a whisk to start breaking down peas as they cook and soften.  Continue to whisk until smooth and carrots are cooked.  Salt and Pepper to taste.  Serve hot.
