BFTP = Blast from the past
What a weekend. I’ve been so grouchy, but I think it is finally passing. I’m not sure what was up, but I know I have definitely felt unbalanced for a couple days. I used to meditate and it helped me a lot, but I rarely find the quiet time to do that these days Today I substituted a trip to the Bulk Barn and Superstore all by myself (ahhh) and a lot of loud music in the car. That, plus a Starbucks Caramel Macchiato seemed to start lifting the haze that I’ve been living in since Thursday.
Now on to the yummy stuff!
Surprisingly enough, my picky lil’ one loves lentils. She is a huge fan of Lebanese-style brown rice and lentils with caramelized onions, so I make it a lot (I’ll post my recipe soon). She’s still a bit leery of soups though, but I think when she’s ready to take the plunge she will love this one. The flavors in this particular Lentil soup by Ina Garten have so much more depth than other recipes that I have tried, and do not leave out the red wine at the end (red wine vinegar is fine). I always have made this recipe using vegetable stock in lieu of the chicken stock listed with no complaints. I put leeks in if I have them, but if not, no biggie
