Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

Life has been busy with work so I have not posted a blog in a while. BUT I have been cooking! This is the perfect soup for a cold, rainy day. I promised my friend Monica I would get this on my blog… This can be made totally in the crock pot but if you have the time I sauté the onion and carrot first before adding to the crockpot. I served with some homemade croutons.
