Santa brought a dutch oven - suggestions?

Santa brought me a new 7qt. dutch oven. I'd love suggestions! I do plan on breaking it in by using the ham leftovers and bone to make split pea soup!

  1. Lucky you! You can't beat split pea soup. Do you add carrots/celery/potatoes when the peas are soft? Some do some don't.

    1. This is the best potato soup I've ever had:


      I make it with the ham broth, and top it with shredded cheddar and a little plop of sour cream.
