As I pondered what in the world to talk about on this post -- since there's absolutely nothing new in the chonkey world -- each topic was rejected.
Do I tell you about how my car has been in the shop for three weeks because I hit a deer?
Do I tell you how I have a pulled muscle in my back that has made normal life impossible?
Do I tell you how I bought a new (used) Oreck vacuum and now don't have to lug the heavy beast up the stairs?
No. Super boring.
So instead I'll provide the recipe for the soup I made last night for dinner. I think it equals that of my favorite middle eastern restaurant.
Crushed Lentil Soup
I followed it to the letter, except for the saffron, which I don't have in my spice inventory. And blenderizing the entirety of the pot. Only half for me.
See what you think.
