Lentil Soup

I've just finished sending my photo in to Walgreens for the free package...my husband and I took a family picture with Abigail outside and we're looking forward to framing it so that we can put it in our new home soon.

Abigail is taking a nap so I started up a pot of Lentil Soup. This is such an easy recipe and so quick to prepare!! I've posted it below so you all can try it too.

1 medium onion, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped (I use more)
1 large stalk celry, chopped (I use more)

*cook ingredients above in a little olive oil over medium for about 10 minutes (until celry is tender)
