On My Hearth: Moroccan Lentil Soup

We arrived in Ormond Beach last night just in time for dinner, threw together a quickie pasta dish and then we went to Ocean Deck to get my long overdue beach fix.

Today we went back to the Deck for lunch with my dad and his girl friend to celebrate his 70th birthday.  (Sorry, no pics, we were too busy eating & chatting to take any). 

I chose to spend the rest of my day reading & hanging out with the pets instead of grocery shopping...

so when it came time to make dinner I decided to make do with what we had on hand. Fortunately Happy Herbivore had the same idea when she came up with this recipe for Moroccan Lentil Soup. (I know, I have shared a couple of similar recipes, but this one is by far the quickest/easiest) I followed Lindsay's instructions exactly but once the soup was almost done, I transferred it into the crock-pot and put on the Low setting for an hour or so to let the flavors mingle nicely.

After dinner Chip and I took Loki for a walk, am about to put the kettle on a for a cup of tea and call it a day. I plan to wake up early and hit the beach by sunrise, so that means an early bedtime for me.
