Cauliflower, Kale & Red Lentil Coconut Curry

Hello everyone!  How’s your week going so far?  Did you make it through Monday without totally falling asleep in the middle of the day?  Daylight savings time is great ’cause the days are longer, but I really missed that freaking hour.  Girl got to have her sleep, feel me?

Luckily we have copious amounts of coffee in our household.  And this past weekend hubby and I  got a new kitchen toy.  Yay!  We bought a Nespresso coffee machine.  Hubby had one at work and raved about it; it went on sale for like $80 bucks off so we decided to pick one up and so happy we did.  If you love coffee like hubby & I do, then you’d love this machine.  You’ve probably seen all those commercials with George Clooney and Danny DeVito going around making a big deal about the coffee that this machine makes.  I know, I know, like ‘what the heck, it’s only coffee; what’s the big deal, right?’ I dunno, they must infuse some kinda magic Continue reading

Well hello there everyone!  How’s your week going so far? Everything is going great here, especially since I heard the other day that we are going to have an ‘above-average temperature’ Spring.  Woot woot!  We just had some snow (followed by rain) this past weekend, though.  Didn’t last long.  No biggie.  That kind of weather puts me in the mood for something in the slow cooker, you know, comfort food type of thing.  Thought I would make a batch of soup for the following week for lunches and stuff.  The choice was barley vegetable soup.  It had all the makings of a beautifully tasty dish – swiss chard, carrots, fresh herbs, you get the picture.  I put everything in the slow cooker and way to go.  Because it was Saturday I must have been going on auto pilot or Continue reading
