Dinner Tonight...

I woke up with a horrible sore throat today and it's been making me feel pretty pathetic most of the day. My well planned 'to do' list was laughing at me from the coffee table where it sat, with not much getting crossed off!

I have enjoyed planning our menu for the week, and it is helping me shop more efficiently. I hope that we will be saving money and eating better in the process too.

When I planned for this week, it was another gloomy Seattle summer day and this recipe came to mind. I took the chance that there would be a 'cooler' day for us to enjoy it; and as luck would have it the combination of the rain and my sore throat makes today the perfect opportunity.

So tonight, we'll feast on Spicy Ethiopian Red Lentil Stew and rice.

I don't have the obscure spice it calls for so I used about 1tsp of cumin, and 1/2tsp of Turmeric. It was just a simple and delicious recipe. Pretty easy to prepare and great for leftovers too.
