Red lentil stew salad bowl ... looks meh but tastes 🔥

I usually add potatoes and carrots but didn’t this time because it was too much extra effort when I was cooking yesterday 😂 ( but today I wish I did 😢)

Well....the left side looks right up my alley...the right side, though...🤨 😂

Although, I could be convinced to think otherwise, as I don't think I have ever (knowingly) eaten lentils before....

Do they taste like Beans? Or risotto? Quinoa?

Today's salad al Fresco:

Romaine, carrots, cucumbers, feta, bacon, brussel sprouts, imitation crab, and a couple tbsps of "meat sauce filling crumbs" that the Kid left on her plate after eating her lasagna. Can't waste perfectly good protein!!!

307 calories

Ate it all (granted, on and off over a couple hours, but still counts)

...and yeah, my Pajama Protest didn't last long. I couldn't bring myself to wear my animal print pj bottoms to the grocery store.

You've never had lentils???

They taste closest to Beans IMO. A delicious introduction would be Dahl Makahi from and Indian restaurant or make a mediterranean lentil Soup.

'Nuff said. I stand by my initial reaction: I do not like Beans. lol.

(...with the exception of sweetened red beans in asian Desserts, of course)

They look awful and runny in my bowl because they’re on top of salad instead of something like rice, potatoes, naan, etc. that soaks up the moisture (plus I didn’t add potatoes or carrots to help the texture)

This is the appealing version:

They taste like ... lentils!?!?! 🧐 someone please help me explain the taste/texture 😂

Ice Cream 🍨 (Häggen-Dazs Pralines and Cream).

Served myself 1/3 cup, but after a couple spoonfuls, I could tell it was going to give me a dumping response, so quit while I was ahead. Ate a little less than half...put the rest back in the freezer for another time.

194 calories (ate ~1/2 of it)

That sounds yum!




My absolute favorite springtime dessert is Pavlova. I make them individual size, build your own style with meringue, lemon curd, fresh berries, berry sauce & whipped cream.




From Easter:

LOL...yeah the fam thinks these are aberrations as well. They prefer the Double-Stuff version. I like these cuz they are cute (plus I'm more into the cookie than the filling anyway).


Same. I like the cookie and actually scrap the inside out and throw away. Although I really don’t eat them since my sleeve but a few times. They don’t do much for me. I have a huge sweet tooth so my list is long of other things lol

Has anyone else tried the impossible burger yet?

No, but am intrigued. Googled to see how much it costs here...and its 5 TIMES the cost of real ground beef by weight. Man, saving the planet is expensive.

Edited to add: ok...now I found that Burger King Canada sells it as a cooked burger, for roughly the same price as a regular Whopper. Something doesn't add up here...
