This is the End Beautiful Friend

It's the end of the ham, the post Easter baked smoked ham that I slow baked all night in my little Barbie oven. We've reached the bone. It's like the carcass of a wildebeest and we're the lions lying around licking our chops.

I froze the bone and some big chunks to use for the split pea soup finale. I used my freshly made stock that I poached the chicken thighs in along with root vegetables and spices.
This was a super rich soup and since the smoked ham wasn't as salty, you really tasted the pea. We've had way too much ham but I have to say it was so incredible that you just couldn't help yourself. This soup didn't even need the croutons.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
