WHen I was doing Daycare my littles called this complicated bean soup....I really dont know why! Maybe their Mom called it that but the name always pops into my head when I make this type of soup. Today I really wanted to make Split Pea Soup with my wonderful left over ham bone...alas, not a split pea in the house! Then I saw my stash of beans...just the ticket, and OH MY is it GOOD!
