Forgive me my friends, this post is going to be short.
Strike one: It’s Monday. Sometimes I just hate Monday. I’m pretty sure you guys can hear me on this one? I especially hate Monday when the following occur:
Strike Two: I spent most of the weekend tending my poor sick kids. (Including the wee hours. AKA: I haven’t slept all weekend.)
Strike Three: This morning I woke up with so much pressure in my head I wished it would explode. Remember those old “this is your brain on drugs” commercials? The one where the egg gets smashed on the concrete or something to that effect? I wish someone would do that to my head today so it would stop hurting. Ok that was kind of melodramatic I admit, but you get the point: I feel like something scraped off the bottom of your shoe.
For some reason I just can’t seem to connect this recipe to a humorous story, I can’t think of any fascinating lentil facts, nor can I seem to wax poetic about food today. Forgive me? Perhaps I should point out that this soup is very good for you when your sick? In fact I’m probably going to eat this for lunch myself today. Lentils are probably a super food right!?! They can do battle with my super bug! Hopefully I’ll be cured by late afternoon.
In all seriousness, I can say that this soup is really good. Its hearty and comforting. Lentils and spinach really are quite healthy and some good ole Italian sausage gives it a major favor kick. It’s perfect for a winer day or fighting super bugs. So forgive me for being grumpy today and give it a try.Print
