Classic Bacon And Hot Dog Lentil Soup

When I was a younger girl, my mother called me to come and eat dinner. As I rushed, my stomach growling, all I found was my least favorite meal, lentil soup! I would pout and beg for something else! But my mother refused to give me anything else and made me sit and eat. I would spend at least an HOUR sitting, not taking a bite! But after a while sitting, I tried it and after a few slurps, I loved it! After that I would beg my mother to make it, up to this day! But it's time to share this recipe, once hated, now loved with others. I hope this meal from my home country pleases your taste buds!
