This is applesauce.
Applesauce was my snack today.
In betwixt many, many other things. That caused me to sigh. Loudly. But…I still love my job.
Of course that does not mean that I did not start planning dinner on my way home.
And start preparing dinner as soon as I walked in the door.
Lentil and rice casserole.
I am very proud of lentil and rice casserole. I made it myself, with no recipe.
So here, as best I can:
Lentil and Rice Casserole
- 3/4 cup of lentils
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 tiny red onions, chopped
- 5 cups water
- 1 cup of brown rice
- 2 cups water
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- Salt and Natures Seasoning to taste
In 5 cups of water cook lentils, garlic and onion. Bring to a boil, then let simmer for 30-45 minutes, adding in a dash of salt and seasoning. Meanwhile, cook the rice in the remaining 2 cups of water, with salt. Rice should cook for about 20 minutes. When the water looks about cooked out, add 1/2 cup of the water off the lentils to the rice. Add the almonds, and let the water cook down again. When rice is done, pour into a serving dish. Drain the lentils and add to the rice. Stir together and serve.
It’s really tasty with green beans.
Fresh green beans too. From a random garden that was not Mama D’s.
Even tastier with wrinkled carrots.
Those are an afterthought. And were tossed in a glass (not plastic) dish in the microwave for two minutes. In hindsight, two minutes may have been a tad too long.
Altogether it made a pretty colorful dining tray. Because I am nearly certain that is not an actual plate.
Oh, and did I mention dessert?
Return of the frozen bananas.
- 1 frozen banana, processed
- ‘ell if I know how many frozen blueberries
- pile of coconut
- even more chopped pecans
- spoonful of DCD
