Split Pea for me.....

This is what I'm making tonight. The milk sounds interesting to make this a creamier recipe. As I'm sure you can tell I cut and pasted this right off Allrecipes after I changed the serving size to 7 because that is how many split peas I had Also I used bacon bits and pieces that I bought this month instead of regular bacon. We got 3 lbs for $3 instead of 12 oz for $3 when it is sliced. BTW I did make some extra bacon that well, I guess I'm just gonna have to nibble on LOL My other change is I also added in a celery stalk chopped with the carrots. So, Lastly, I will post back later tonight the results of how my family enjoyed this dinner. I am also going to mix up some rolls in the bread maker dough cycle and bake off at about 5 pm for dinner by 5:30 YUM-O I can't wait!!!
This was ok, good, not great. Ended up being a bit thick for our taste even with adding 1 cup of chicken broth halfway through. The milk does not take away from the traditional type flavor so I would add it again however, my picky guy do not eat much food that has color so.....the rolls have it!!! See here for the roll recipe.
