Teh kitteh wishes you a happy WIAW. Also, wants you to stay away from it's lentils.
Sadly, my cat doesn't actually eat lentils. Even more sadly, my cat isn't really mine anymore (she lives with my mom *sad face*).
If you hadn't guessed it, I had lentils this lovely Wednesday (i.e. Tuesday), delicious, delicious, Parmesan and Fire Roasted Tomato Lentils. Read on for the recipe and to see teh eats!
Old Fashioned Oatmeal with Maple Syrup, Brown Sugar, and Pecans
Upon discovering a few weeks ago that peanut butter makes oatmeal so much more satisfying, I decided I'd experiment with some other nuts. The pecans had a delightful crunch and helped keep me full until lunch. The oatmeal was accompanied by an invisible cup of coffee.
Noodle and Rice Soup
This beauty was resurrected from the freezer. I had so much extra soup left from my Crazy Cooking Challenge, but unfotunately had run out of noodles. I swapped them out for some short grain rice, and was pleasantly surprised. If you're interested in this spicy, luscious, and souper tasty soup (see what I did there?), then clicky <<here>> for the recipe. Lunch was paired with another cup of coffee, a pear, and a tangerine.
Parmesan and Fire Roasted Tomato Lentils
These are soooo good!!! I've made these before, and I know I will make these again. This recipe calls for French (de Puy) lentils which hold their shape better than most, and have a delightful bite and nuttiness to them. The toe of green you see in the bottom right is this lovely number:
Flash Cooked Collards ala Mark Bittman
Although these emerald strips will never replace my one true love (kale), they are extremely tasty. I julienned them into strips and quickly sauteed them in some oil, and then finished them with a squeeze of lemon and a dash of s&p. Delicious.
I rounded off my day by eating two small school children:
Kitteh approves of the nomming of small children. She doesn't need to know they were made out of chocolate.
Kitteh would like to thank Jenn at peas and crayons for hosting teh foodz partay.
