Congrats, Tresa! That's so great! Many blessings to you and your soon to be hubby!
Carriebft, I feel silly even writing this because I'm not so great at measuring out recipes a lot of the time - I just eyeball it - but I can tell you what I do.
So for yesterday's Lentil Soup I did...
8 cups of vegetable stock
8 cups H20
a 16 oz bag of dry lentils
a few cups of chopped onions
a few cups of shredded carrot
pepper and salt
and let it cook on medium for a couple hours
You can saute the onions in a little vegetable oil before you add them if you want, it helps bring out the flavor
Mrs.-Mama, how scary about your grandpa! I hope he is doing well. I am trying to squeeze in a ton of stuff in case the m/s hits me too! Gah - stressful!
