Lentil Soup with Italian Sausage

Today happens to be Halloween.

I think I’ll be dressing up like a chicken with it’s head cut off this year.  Since I pretty much look like one everyday it shouldn’t be too much of a stretch.

This weekend we kicked off the Halloween festivities by trick or treating our local businesses and attending our church’s trunk or treat.  It was loads of fun and if the kids don’t get even one more piece of candy they would still have enough to last them until next Halloween.  Good thing I’m here to help them with all of those chocolate bars…I don’t do suckers.

With all of that candy I want to make sure my kids get a hearty dinner full of veggies.  Balance in everything, right!?  I made this soup the other night and it was a big hit.

This was my first time {GASP} cooking with lentils.  I’ve always been afraid of cooking with dried beans and now I know why after talking with my mom this weekend but that will be a story for another day.  All you need to know is if you can boil pasta you can cook with lentils.  I promise.
