That looks good!

It really is. And even I'm okay with the level of prep this requires since I streamlined a few things (a jar of minced garlic and dried minced onions). This is the second time I've made it, and I think I did a bit better this time around - a little less salty. I had two bowls and there was still enough leftover for me to divide it into four bowl-sized portions.

Lol. That's how I feel about everyone else's food posts on here!

I must say, I love all the food posts. So much inspiration. :)

Next time use baby carrots? That way you won't have to chop up things and aggravate your wrist?

That's a good idea. And the carrots get soft enough that I could probably break them up a bit with a wooden spoon once the soup is finished.

You can probably just break the carrots up when you eat the soup? I started tossing bags of baby carrots into my stews just to make "more" of it or to stretch the left overs out. No complaints.

Oh, that looks so tasty. I love a good lentil soup and this looks great.

Btw, is there any prospect of you getting to see someone about your elbow situation? It sounds really painful.

I've been to the doctor twice. The current verdict is tennis elbow (I'm still somewhat doubtful of this) - the doctor gave me an anti-inflammatory gel to use 2-4 times a day for a couple weeks, to see if it made a difference. If not, he said we could try a shot that might help. It's been almost a week now, and I'm not sure if there's much difference. I'm considering calling this week, because sometimes my elbow is tender enough (usually by evening) that just putting on the gel makes it ache. I want to know first whether the shot has drawbacks - potential side effects, could make things worse, etc. I kind of want a second opinion too but am not sure how to go about that, particularly right now.

It might be difficult right now with covid, but have you tried massage therapy? My therapist helped me a lot with similar problems.
