I almost named this post, Dinner Tonight, because no matter what day you read this on, it’s a pretty safe bet that this would make an excellent choice for just such an occasion.
This soup is hearty, delicious, easy and very inexpensive, thus making it probably my most favourite meal, ever. I haven’t posted this recipe before now, because it is impossible to photograph nicely. Does anyone even say “photograph” any more? Photograph? It sounds so, pre-telephone. This post was actually typed on a typewriter and my notes were written with a feather dipped into an inkwell. Hold on a sec, I have to go answer my telegraph.
I’m back. It was the 1800′s calling. They said, “Stop embarrassing yourself by broadcasting how little you know about us.” Newfangled devices these days…they always have so much attitude.
The soup. It’s amazing. And I guarantee you’ll be making it at LEAST twice a week, for the foreseeable future. Here is a picture, but you should know, that it really does this goldmine no favours.
Maybe I should rename it, Sausage and Lentil Stew. It’s very hearty, like I said.
Anyway, it pulls it’s primary flavours from the sausage, lentils, and this little guy who, incidentally, I like to call “my other husband.”
