The past several days have been dusty, dreary, blustery and thundery. Not much rain; lots of dust. We haven't seen much of the sun since Saturday.
Jingles thought she wanted to go on the balcony to check things out. She sniffed around a bit ...
... but then decided she wanted right back in. You can't really see the dust but it is there. So much for all the cleaning I did after the monster storm nearly two weeks ago.
I made another simple, delicious and healthy soup.
SPICED LENTIL SOUP: Saute 1/2 cup of diced onion; 4 cloves of minced garlic and 1/3 cup barley in 1 TBS of olive oil. Add 3 qts of vege stock and 1 cup of brown lentils, bring to a boil and then simmer until lentils are tender. Stir in 1 can of chickpeas, 1/2-1 lb of spinach (I use frozen) and 18 oz of salsa. Heat through and serve.
I love to cook but during regular school days, it can be such a chore in the rush of getting everything else done. Now with time on my hands, cooking and baking is pleasurable. My pajama wearing days have allowed me to get many projects done. This scarf was a UFO that is now complete.
If you were in the line of storms raging across the country yesterday, I hope all is well and that skies are brighter today. Have a wonderful Wednesday! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy
