Ham and Lentil Soup

2 ribs celery diced
1 tbls. minced garlic
3 large carrots diced
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:
Add all ingredients to crockpot. Turn on low and cook 8-9 hours. I usually check mine every now and then just to see if it needs a little more seasoning. Serve with warm homemade bread and a salad for more veggies.
