Thanksgiving over, turkey soup simmering on the stove. I think that's my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner ...the soup after. I'm a big fan of soups especially in the cooler and winter weather. Speaking of soup, I have to share with you the recipe I got from Tammy of T's Daily Treasures earlier this week ...
Spiced Lentil Soup: Brown 1/2 cup diced onions, 3 cloves minced garlic and 1/3 cup of barley in 1 TBS of olive oil. Add 3 quarts of vegetable stock and 1 cup of orange lentils. Cook til tender. Add in 1 can of chickpeas, 1/2 lb of spinach and 12 oz of salsa. Heat through and serve. (Tammy said she used more salsa than called for and frozen spinach.)
This is a keeper recipe, easy to make and absolutely wonderful! You just have to try this, you'll be happy you did.
Well, a bit of housekeeping to do this morning then to meet a very dear friend that I haven't seen in quite a long time for lunch. Great way to keep the momentum of the holiday going.
