Happy 1st day of November!
This time of the year I'm all about making great hot soups.
So very comforting to sit down and have a nice hot bowl of soup.
This one is Lentil and Spinach soup.
Very low in calories and very filling.
I even got Skip to eat it. Which is a surprise because he is not a spinach person.
