Friday evening

With all the sickie-dickies in the house this week, I thought it would be a good idea to make some hearty, healthy soup!  So! I made Lentil Stew.  Have to credit  Sylvia at t2chk.org/ for the recipe.  It’s a real keeper, if you ever want to try it!

My hubby came home sick still.  The soup was just what he needed to warm and nourish him.  There is still lots leftover if you care to risk catching what we have.  OR you can make your own:

A lot of this recipe can come from your home garden.

Lentil Stew

Heat this to boiling lower heat to a simmer and cook for 1 1/2 hours

2 cups dried lentils

7 cups water

ham bone

2 cups finely diced potatoes (optional)

1/2 cup finely chopped carrots

1 medium onion, chopped

1/2 cup chopped celery

3 Tbsp. minced parsley

1 clove garlic, crushed

Then add:

2 cups canned tomatoes

2 Tbsp vinegar

2 Tbsp sugar
