Sausages and Lentils 

Sausages and Lentils

I have always been a bit leery of lentils and actually have no idea why.  They aren’t offensive.  They’re basically beans in disguise – they soak up the flavour of whatever they’re cooked in….ooh, they’re tofu!  I very occasionally add lentils to a stew, but really as a filler, not as an “ingredient”, if that makes sense.

My laptop has crashed…..yet again.  Remind me to never, ever buy a Dell laptop again!  This is the 4th or 5th time in the past 6 months, I believe.  I admit that a lot of the problem is Windows, which, at best, is an unstable, badly vetted space & memory hog, but since I all have is

Once upon a when-my-kids-were-little, I would ask the question, “what do you guys want for supper”, and a little voice would answer (generally the mancub), far more often than I appreciated, “Hamburger Helper”. Sorry, Betty Crocker, but I hate that stuff. It’s bland and the sauce is plastic-y and no amount of dressing it up

This soup was a happy accident. I started out making Tuscan Wild Mushroom soup and didn’t have any sun-dried tomatoes (WHAT?!) and some other things required by the recipe, and then I wasn’t in love with the flavour of what I did have, so I oomphed it up a little. Ingredients: 1 bell pepper 2-4

The family all drove out to Canmore today. As a collective, it’s one of our favourite places to be. The smell of the trees, the quieter streets (except in summer), the fewer tourists than Banff (there are places to park!), the river – it’s beautiful. It’s where my now son-in-law proposed to my daughter –

No, there’s no actual steak….it’s basically a burger with no bun but plenty of gravy. Doesn’t matter to me, though, it tastes really good and that’s what I want from my food. Flavour! This is a comfort meal component for me. It’s a hot meal on a chilly evening. It’s simple ingredients. It’s inexpensive ingredients.

The more garlic you use, the safer from vampires you will be. I used 5 big cloves and I’m feeling pretty safe right now. Vampires and germs will both stay away, I’m sure. I’m a big fan of mashed potatoes – actually, potatoes, in almost any form you can name. Double baked, cheese on top,

I have a recipe for enchilada sauce up already, but it’s a quick recipe made with chili powder – which isn’t bad. Not at all. But I bought that big bag of guajillo chiles last week and woke up yesterday with the thought, “wonder what enchilada sauce made with chiles is like”? I had to

This has been a bit of a dramatic week for us. Our hot water tank started oozing water last week – turns out the weld inside broke and it had to be replaced. This was inconvenient but didn’t hurt since we rent and it’s the landlord’s issue not ours (thank goodness). Then our dryer died

My daughter introduced me to Pho a few years ago. What a revelation of flavours! Actually, quite difficult to describe – I think it must be tasted to be appreciated. Pho can be complicated or not. There are shortcuts that can be taken and, if it’s a choice between taking a shortcut or not having
