The sun is setting earlier and the weather is cooling down. The cool nights can be a little warmer with a steaming bowl of soup or stew. Sure, there are the common beef stews and the chicken noodle soups but why not try something a little different? Split pea soup is a nutritious and hearty choice, especially when it can be prepared in the slow cooker while you go about your day's schedule.
