It’s no secret that I love, love, love my crock pot. So any meal that has only a couple of real food ingredients that just get dumped in the crock pot is the meal for me! This morning I spent about 15 minutes dicing carrots, onion, and garlic, threw a few more things in and dinner was cooking. When I got home from work and the gym, dinner was ready! And the even better part? It only cost about $5 for 8+ servings of this deliciousness! My husband raved about it and my teenager even said it was good. And the really interesting thing I learned about lentils is that they are believed to bring wealth and prosperity to those who eat them. I don’t know about you, but I could use a little more wealth and prosperity!
