Re: What's the meal that everyone likes?

For our family this recipe is huge. It is nothing for me to make a double recipe,becauseeveryome will take leftovers for lunch until it is gone, We usually have it with no knead bread. My 7 year old named it piggy pot
32oz of vegetable broth
1 bag dried lentils
7 strips of bacon
1lb of dice ham
16oz smoked sausage
2 bell peppers
1 large onion
12oz carrots
3 stalk celery
2 garlic gloves
3tbsps chili powder
28 tomato puree
Crisp 4 strips of bacon and crumble,set aside,save the grease. Saute the veggies in the bacon fat(yum pork fat)until they are soft. Bring the vegetable broth with 3 strips of bacon to boil and add the lentils simmer about 15 minutes and slice the smoked sausage into bite sized pieces. When the lentils are almost cooked remove the 3 strips of bacon and toss(or feed to the dogs),add all the other ingredients,heat through and serve.
OK so it isn't the healthiest,but it is amazing on a cold day and the family loves it
