Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Vedge In the House

You are looking at Sophie's favorite dinner this week.  If you click on the caption below the picture it will link you to the recipe.  I couldn't find black lentils so I subbed French lentils and I didn't go through the trouble of making vegetable stock.  I cooked the lentils in some whey I had left over from yogurt making, adding a bit more salt and spice mixture to compensate.  That green harissa is pretty damn spicy.  I had quite a bit left-over, ditto for the lentils.  I wish I had made more carrots.  By the way, it took waaaay longer than 15-20 minutes to roast the carrots, more like 45 minutes.

I went to Penzey's to source the spices I needed to make the gingerbread from Roberta's.  It smells great, and I hope it was worth the effort.  I'm glad I didn't shower after Crossfit this morning because I got another workout grating all the fresh ginger.  I was able to do two ugly pull-ups at the gym today.  Just wanted to put that out there so when I look back in a year that will seem wimpy in comparison to the 10 I can do in 2015.
