It’s a half day at school today. Half day for the kids… not me, unfortunately.
Each month we have a potluck with a different theme… so I signed up for Soup Day… because I figured I wanted to get it over with early in the year, and, I can just use my crockpot (my favorite gadget ever).
Last night, at about 7, after I had gotten home, went to the gym and grocery, and gotten home again, I remembered I’d signed up for Soup Day.
It wasn’t an option to leave the house again, so I had the few ingredients at home to make homemade lentil soup…. boring, yes… but I didn’t have to brave the grocery again, so it was a win in my book.
Veggie Lentil Soup
- 1 cup dry lentils
- 1 cup each of chopped carrots, celery, onion
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 2- 14 oz cans of veggie broth or chicken broth
- 1.5 cups water
- 1- 14.5 oz can of Italian style tomatoes
Now, throw all the ingredients in the crock pot and let it cook for 4-5 hours on high or 8-10 on low. Easy peasy.
