Dinner was awesome tonight! I’m already so excited for the leftovers tomorrow :)
Nick and I had to run a few errands at lunch today, so lunch was pretty quick at work.
We both had the leftover baked pasta, and I had a local apple with some cinnamon raisin peanut butter. I didn’t have any green veggies to bring for lunch, but I figured it was okay since I had that green smoothie for breakfast ;)
I brought my apple corer-slicer to use – it’s so much easier than bringing a knife and trying to cut it up at work.
The cinnamon raisin pb was much better on my apple than my celery from last week. I think the sweet pb just needs to be on something sweet!
I had a pretty busy afternoon with work, and I got hungry around 4 so I broke into my “bar stash”.
I love how chunky these bars are – and I like that they’re not overly sweet like a lot of granola-type bars.
Plus, brazil nuts are one of my favorites, so I like that they were in this bar AND that you could actually taste them.
Once we got home and gave Maggie and Roxy hugs and kisses, I started on dinner.
Thank you, Barefoot Contessa.
While Nick played ball with Maggie, I got started on this Lentil Sausage Soup recipe.
The only changes I made were:
- Cutting everything down just a little (i.e., only 1 onion, 4 carrots, 4 celery stalks, 4 cups of broth and a little water)
- Used 2 roasted garlic chicken sausages that I browned in a little oil instead of the kielbasa
- No leeks! I didn’t have any.
This may have been the best lentil soup I’ve ever had.
Soup + yeast roll + Kerrygold butter + a Full Moon? The perfect dinner for tonight.
The weather has gotten colder again, and we’re supposed to get more snow on Friday! Soup was all I could think about today, and it didn’t let me down.
And my parents have been asking for more puppy pictures, so here are a few from tonight.
Isn’t that little curly-q on the end of her tail adorable? I love it. It’s like the end of a candy wrapper.
I went and picked up some more rawhide bones for her tonight, and she LOVES them.
And also – once she’s out of this puppy stage, we’re going to need new rugs. I wanted new ones anyways, but she really likes pulling little strings out of them.
e for cuddling :)
