Lentil Pea Soup

Just a quick pop-in to post a new recipe! Made this tonight for supper and it was a hit! Perfect with fresh bread =)

1 bag split peas, sorted and rinsed
1 bag lentils, sorted and rinsed
10 cups water (half chicken stock is what I did)
2 cups cubed ham
1 sweet onion, chopped or pureed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp thyme
3 celery stalks, chopped small
3 carrots, chopped small
2 potatoes, cubed small
2 minced garlic cloves

Put everything in crock pot on high. Simmer 8 hours or so in a crock pot. I put it going at 8 am and it was ready about 4:30. Otherwise, simmer in pot until done, about 2 hours. 
Serve warm with fresh bread for BEST taste =)
