We are a family that loves soup.  I think I've only ever made one soup they didn't like, and that was a split pea.  I wasn't too fond of it either, for that matter.  In fall, when it starts cooling off, we usually have soup once or twice a week.  It's cheap, it goes far, and it's so incredibly comforting.

So a few days ago I was watching my CrackTV (also known as Food Network) and Ina Garten made a lentil sausage soup.  It looked divine!!!  Of course I had to make it!

So now it's simmering away on the stovetop, and I can't wait until we get back from football practice so we can dig in.

Here's the recipe.  Take note that it makes SIX FRIGGIN QUARTS, you might want to cut it in half.  I just used the recipe as a guideline, did my own measurements.  Enjoy!!!

Oh yeah, and one of these days I'll post the recipe for DADDY Soup.  BEST SOUP EVER, and the way Brian makes it only comes out to 4 WW points for a huge bowl.  GOOD STUFF, MAYNARD.

And just for the record, it came out ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS.  One of the best soups I've ever made.  The only person that didn't like it was Brian...and...well...there's just something wrong with him.
