More Soup

Baby its cold outside. My big, strong man was coming home from San Diego and I needed to have his dinner ready for him (because a way to a man's heart is through his stomach). He loves soups and I love how easy it is to dump the contents of the refrigerator into a pot and simmer it to make the "best soup ever", every time.

This time I boiled 8 cups of water, then added the following:

4 vegetable bouillion (Rapunzel brand, my favorite)

1 cup red lentils
1 cup yellow lentils
2 cups cooked brown rice

The following are chopped into various shapes and sizes:

1 purple turnip
1 parsnip
1 onion
1 leek
3 stalks celery
3 carrots
1 small bunch of kale (I was running out of room)
Fresh parsley

I knocked that down to a simmer for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, I did a TRX workout, went for a long run in the snow, cleaned the apartment, played with my dog, got loads of work done... (Only one of these is true).

Anyway, this really worked. My man was SO happy to see me when I got home. After I massaged his feet, I packed up all of the leftover soup into lunch-sized containers, so that he would have lunch made the next day ;)

at least make it somewhat of a guess. I know it was playing with the dog. WAY TOO EASY.

You're just jealous because I stole your dog.
