Lentil Soup

My Husband and I went out to Baci the other night for a date. Baci is a wonderful authentic Italian food restaurant here in San Diego. My husband ordered their lentil soup. I didn't, because I knew that I would get to full and not be able to enjoy my main meal. The problem is, the soup came and it looked so wonderful, I had to have a bite. Then I broked down and called the waiter over. I ordered my own soup, because I knew at that point I was going to eat all of Randy's soup. Lentil soup is an easy soup to make and I don't know why I don't make it more often. I decided then and there that this week I was going to make some.

  1. I was lucky enough to pop in to Christi's when she was serving this wonderful dish. I had been on the go all day and hadn't eaten a thing. She saved me with this tasty treat. So filling. I decided to add it to my menu for this week. I am going to try it in my crock pot so it will fill the house with the smell of garlic all day.
