What did you do for new years?

Its been really rainy and chilly here lately and the best thing to do in weather like this is have a nice warming soup.  This is my favorite soup recipe, I came up with this recipe, because of my love for peas.  I keep the ingredients simple so you can taste the peas clearly this is great with a big drizzle of cashew cream.
