for dinner last night …
January 14, 2011
one of the meals on my meal plan for this week was a lentil soup that i’ve been wanting to try (french lentil and potato stew recipe from “feeding the whole family” cookbook). i decided to fix it yesterday, since we were needing to eliminate some foods to see if there were some triggers causing my sweet girl to have a tummy ache in recent days. we ate “clean” all day, which felt great, and really enjoyed this dinner last night! i was thrilled when maddie wanted seconds … a success!
the flavors in this soup were wonderful, vibrant and almost sweet/spicy. and it was extremely frugal … made mostly with ingredients i had on hand. i prepared a loaf of gluten free bread on the side, inspired by shawnna’s recipe but modified by adding mashed bananas in place of pumpkin, as well as using a mix of brown rice, and other gluten free flours (instead of just brown rice flour). it tasted wonderful, buttered with a little honey!
