Leftover Lentil Soup

The  whole point of leftover meals is that you can use whatever is in you fridge already..and look what a healthy combination of veggies was hiding in mine? This improptu, last minute Leftover Lentil Soup was my  Friday’s dinner. I missed soups and I must confess that I kinda miss Fall, rainy days and a hot pot of little something for dinner. I know Summer is still here..Are you  more of a Summer or Winter person? I’m a Winter fella #guilty.
