WIAW: Besides Soup

It’s an anomaly that there are no references to soup in this post. The past few weeks of Crockpot trial and exploration, I’ve made my pumpkin fail, tomato soup, tomato hominy, and red lentil hodgepodge. I’ll post about the last two successes soon. My days have involved lots of snacks on snacks on snacks per usual, but I thought I’d share a meal from the last few days. As you’ll see, I finally got to it and made a recipe from one of my favorite blogs. Though yoga teacher training is over, my weekend was filled with yoga workshops and classes and finally chefing it up in the kitchen.

Thanks for hosting WIAW, Jenn

  1. I haven’t tried lentils yet but I’ve been meaning too! Right now I’m in “use up all my groceries before I leave for vacation” mode so I haven’t been too experimental. I love it when I find time to make a recipe I’ve been meaning to try, so much fun.

  2. Your life sounds so cool! I can’t wait to say I did a yoga workshop one weekend. My plan is to sign-up for teacher training as soon as I’m finished Grad school. I’m afraid I’ll overbook myself if I do it now, but I sure do enjoy reading your posts and about your experiences!

    Whenever I’ve thought up a concoction that was amazing in my head and is just the opposite, I think, well at least I’m getting a chock-ful of nutrients!

    Oh my goodness, that lentil loaf looks incredible, and I bet it tasted just as good as it looks! I guess I just gave it away that I like lentils! šŸ˜€

    • TT is definitely a huge time and monetary commitment so be prepared, but SO worth it. I suddenly don’t know what to do with all this free time on the weekends.

      I def agree that the best recipes are in your head–so much easier than following step by step
