Yesterday evening was leftovers, so I really looked forward to cooking this evening. We had one of our regular favorites, Honey-baked lentils. I make it every few weeks because it's so easy and we like it so much. There are a million things you can do with this recipe. Some people add chopped vegetables and vary the spices. Here is the way I like it:
2 cups lentils (I like to use the red lentils)
4 cups water
1 chopped onion
4 TBS Shoyu
4 TBS Honey
3 TBS Olive Oil
2 tsp ground ginger
1 large clove of garlic, minced
Mix all of the above in large baking dish, and bake for 1.5 hours at 350 degrees.
I had a side of oven fries and sauteed broccoli with it. Very good. The picture isn't that great. I think the color of the plate has something to do with it. (At least that's what I'm telling myself.)
I seem to be addicted to NPR these days. I just can't tear myself away. I wake up in the morning and turn it on immediately. All day long, if I'm in the house, it's on! HELP!
Cute kid quote of the day: "Mommy, we're going to give you a break. We got all the art stuff out of the closet. Luckily, Julian helped me. We're going to make some things and you can have some quiet time." That's from my 5 year-old daughter.
