Jim's Comments:

I substituted dehydrated potatoes, carrots and celery for the fresh stuff. They were rehydrated and I added additional water help additional rehydration.

I dislike canned peas with a passion and substituted an equivalent amount of frozen. (My mom served a lot of canned peas when I was growing up and there was something like five/six years where I simply refused to eat any peas whatsoever.)

I did this in one of my 4 quart slow cookers.

It's a relatively easy recipe to put together. I know that I've already mentioned adding additional water, but even taking that into consideration, I don't think that I would classify this a 'soup'. More like a stew, and a variation on a theme at that.

Having said all of this, it was a nice bowl. I served it with a nice crusty bun and everything that was served was eaten.
