Comforts of Home
So many of the recipes I wrote into this recipe book are no longer on our menu. Changing the way we eat due to allergies, diabetes and food intolerance issues has been a big change. But we have always been creative and continue to explore new things. Like a Lentil spread which would be like a bread-spread. If you don't eat meat, fish, cheese, hagelslag, peanut-butter or jelly... What can you eat on bread besides fruits or vegetables. Maybe a spread made from both?! We had some glass jars that I had collected for the recycling station, I quickly cleaned them up and thought they would come in handy when the bread spread was made. The recipe stated that you cooked lentils mixed them with mango and other things to create a paste. So we got cooking, Dad took care of the floor and hoovered it, so conversation was not going well due to the noise. But as our livingroom became sparkling once more, the lentils brewed. Time passed quickly as it does when you are contend.
We don't know what went wrong in this recipe but it became a fruity veg dish instead of something to put on a sandwhich. I double checked the instructions but nothing had been left out or altered in any way. To make this story short, it's NOT something I will copy for our personal recipe collection :(
Something else that made me laugh and tg]hink to myself that home is the best place in the world, Charlotte being a bit naughty and stealing a ball of mom's sock yarn. She ran around with it, had loads of fun & seconds later as I wanted to take her picture. Spit it out, resulting in this shot above. How cute is that!
How's your day been? Ate a great meal? Cooked lentils perhaps? Ever made a bread-spread that did work out & want to share the recipe with us??? Are you knitting socks like mom or have something else on the knitting needles? Tell me all about it!
