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?!
