Fabulous Lentil Soup

1 bag brown lentils
1 Large onion
4 brown potatoes, chopped
As much bacon as your arteries can handle - let's say several slices
1/2 bag sliced carrots
1 tablespoon (at least) cider vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar, more to taste
All-beef hot dogs, sliced

Cover lentils & potatoes with at least an inch of water & set over medium-high heat. Fry bacon, onions, and carrots in skillet, drain, and add to lentils. Simmer at least two hours, until potatoes are very tender and there is no longer a distinction between lentils & broth. Season with vinegar, sugar, and fresh or dried parsley to taste. Heat hot dogs in soup just before serving. Freezes well, perfect when it's cold out.
