Good day

It has been a good day today. I was strong enough to pass up all the goodies that Grandma Great brought over for the family. Including: potato salad, coleslaw, roast beef, cake and cookies. I put a big pot of soup on first thing this morning and I have been picking away at it all day. It turned out really well.

Since the rice yesterday still needed a little work, I started with the leftover rice and vegetables in the pot, then I put in:
  • 2 cups of green lentils
  • 3/4 tsp of minced garlic
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 9 cups of water
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cube vegetable bullion
I cooked it all up together until the lentils were at the desired consistency. I ate it as a soup for lunch and then when I had it for supper, it was so thick, I had it over a bed of lettuce. It was really good!!

Lentils are so very yummy ! They were one of the very first beans that my son and hubby agreed to eat. I think it is because their taste and texture can come very close to meat, so they are more palatable to non bean eaters

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
