Lentils recipe…my way

I saw a recipe for lentils and liked most of it, minus the soy sauce, but adding a few more ingredients.

It was called Canal House Lentils recipe, but I made it my own.

Sauté leeks (that are chopped how you like and cleaned well), minced garlic, and chopped mushrooms in butter.

After about 5 minutes or so, add a tablespoon of tomato paste and sauté for a few.

Add a cup of lentils and 2 1/2 cups water and simmer until done. The directions say 45-55 minutes, mine didn’t take 30, Im still getting used to my stove.

Due to the over doneness of the lentils I added cream and a cup of cooked barley (cooked in 2 cups chicken stock until it adsorbed it all) to add depth and flavor.

I had seconds. Adding some cooked chicken would make it a whole meal.

Project on hold for now.

My nephews snoodie is on hold… I played yarn 🐓 chicken. I was able to finish the body but I didn’t have enough to close the hood or make ears. I had to order more red yarn. I will get it in time to finish before next weekend. We are going back to Houston to visit again and I will be able to give it to him then.

Melt down….

I hurt in all my joints today and as the day to night has progressed it has gotten worse. It has made doing things even more difficult. Crocheting while watching tv, yeah was very painful, more than usual.

So I had a major breakdown tonight…tears and everything.

And it was all over a damn knot! I was trying to tie a knot and my hands were so numb and hurting, That even though I could see what I was doing, I couldn’t feel a thing other than pain. Like now as I type. Ugh!
