Recipe Friday – Lentil and Ham Soup


Hi all!! Today I got a recipe for those cold days that are coming and the best part…it’s a slow cooker recipe!! I love my slow cooker so much. I can just dump everything in with little prep and have an amazing meal in the evening. I could go on forever about my slow cooker so I will stop and get back to the recipe đŸ™‚

This recipe is a really simple one that really does not take too long to put together but turns out amazing. The lentils, ham, and other vegetables are the perfect filling for a cold winter night. Just pair it up with biscuits or cornbread and you have the perfect meal. Enjoy!!
