This sweet little guy is making use of the ceramic bowl I put out filled with water.
108 degrees today so I am sure my feathered friends need a little refreshment every now and then.
No matter the weather, I love making soup -- simple, easy, nutritious. In fact, I heard the other day if you eat vege soup before a meal, you are guaranteed to lose weight. For me, soup is the meal! One of my favorites is spicy corn & lentil soup.
Boil 1 cup of orange lentils then reduce heat and simmer til tender (about 15 minutes); drain and set aside. Drizzle pot with olive oil and saute one chopped onion, 4 cloves of garlic, a pinch of red pepper flakes, and 1 tsp each of ground cardamom and ground cumin for a few minutes. Add lentils back to pot along with 2 cups of vege stock, 1-1/2 cups of coconut milk and one can of creamed corn. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Before serving, stir in a handful of chopped cilantro.
I don't know where all the hours in each and every day go. Before I know it, it's time to hit the hay and then start all over again.
Hope your week is off to a great start. Friendship blessings, Tammy
