I've posted this soup recipe before but it is one of my go-to's because it is so easy to make, healthy and delicious.
Spiced Lentil Soup: Brown 1/2 cup diced onions, 3 cloves minced garlic and 1/3 cup of barley in 1 TBS of olive oil. Add 3 quarts of vegetable stock and 1 cup of orange lentils. Cook til tender. Add in 1 can of chickpeas, 1/2 lb of spinach and 12 oz of salsa. Heat through and serve. (I use more salsa than called for and frozen spinach.)
Even better the next day.
Yesterday I posted about the lovely giveaway I received (finally by mail) from Val. She happens to live in the same town in Louisiana where I graduated high school and lived before I moved to Kuwait. Talk about a small world.
In October, Yvonne from Ink Spillers Attic had a studio stash giveaway and I was one of the winners. Her package arrived yesterday (and only took 5 weeks to get to me).
The envelope was filled with a card, handmade book and all sorts of things to craft with.
Now I just gotta get those creative juices flowing! Thanks Yvonne. I appreciate you taking the chance to send some of your stash to my little corner of the world.
Best wishes and blessings to one and all for a wonderful week of thanksgiving.
