Ham and Pea Soup

One delighted and surprised parent!
My parents dropped by after a long drive down, during which they hadn't been able to find a good restaurant to stop in. So they were hungry from the drive, but didn't want anything too heavy. Luckily I just happened to have a big vat of chicken stock boiling on the stove and in the fridge, the last few slices of a lovely ham I cooked earlier in the week.

I drained the stock, thickly diced a few slices of ham and dropped a cup of frozen peas into each bowl, then poured the stock and ham over. Popped each bowl into the microwave for a minute each, and stirred in a handful of finely chopped parsley - and made instant delicious soup!
