I should really go to Morrisons but it's too cold and wet, and DS3 is asleep now anyhow, could pop down the shop when I get DS1 from school - but they don't have a huge selection of stuff (and are expensive).

I have

Red lentils
Sausages (although we had those last night as well)
about 5 medium sized mushrooms
Various herbs/spices
Tin of Red Kidney Beans

No eggs, no onions, no tinned tomatoes (although all 3 can be purchased down the shop)

Just make a thick lentil soup but add chopped bacon when you are sauteeing the onions at the beginning.

a touch of cumin and lemon juice goes nicely in a lentil/bacon soup, if you have either of those in the cupboard mmmm.
