Today was my last official meeting with a volunteer opportunity I’ve had since April. I have one more event on Saturday and then I’m done! It will definitely be nice to have a lot more free time to spend on…wedding planning, blogging, Murph-playin and fiance spendin’. Okay that doesn’t sound like free time, but that’s all stuff that I will enjoy doing for sure.
Tonight’s dinner was a first. I bought a package of green lentils awhile ago at one of our local grocery stores, Woodman’s. (P.S. Woodman’s is pretty much the best grocery store ever. Well that and Trader Joe’s ). Anywho, I’ve never eaten lentils let alone cook them so they’ve been sitting in the cabinets for awhile.
I’ve seen them made on several blogs so I decided tonight was the night to try them. I made ‘Sloppy Lentil Joes,’ obviously a play on Sloppy Joes.
To make them, I used green lentils, onion, carrots, green pepper, mustard, ketchup & barbeque sauce. I made way too much. Like, enough to feed an entire fraternity. For 7 days. For every meal. Lesson learned.
Moving on…I also made asparagus & sweet potato fries.
Best. Sweet. Potato. Fries. EVER. (Alexia Frozen Sweet Potato fries if you’re curious)
I enjoyed the meal, Ryan however…did not. I don’t think at least. He thought it was just okay. Next time I would maybe mix 1/2 ground beef 1/2 lentils to make it more manly, hehe.
Now that I have um, a crap ton of lentils left…what else do I do with these?!
