This came out really well! I made simple drop biscuits to be crumbled into the soup and almost everyone liked it a lot.

Crock Pot Split Pea Soup
3 cups dried split peas
12 cups water
1 chopped onion (or 1/2 cup dried)
6 chopped carrots (in bite size pieces)
6 celery stalks (sliced)
a few bay leaves
1 tbsp salt
Pepper to taste

Cook until peas are tender (you can put in at night and it may be done when you wake up!). Ladle out 1/2 into blender to puree. Add back to soup so broth is thick.

It took about five hours on high for my crockpot, and I didn't need to do the blending step, as it was thick enough for me.
