And last night I used the remainder of them to make Mark Bittman's lentil soup, the spicy version, which I highly recommend. How To Cook Everything, pg. 65. Really fun recipe and you get to add fresh ginger which is an opportunity I always take.
I don't have too much else to show for this week. Unless you want to hear about my most successful shopping trip in months, years perhaps. And it was not at a grocery store. I was begrudgingly walking to the G_p, hoping to find something/anything to wear for Easter, when suddenly some magnetic force pulled me into American Apparel. I hadn't stepped foot in there since I was with my much cooler cousin in 2008. Before then I was just confused. I thought it was a uniform supply outlet or something. Anyway there I was, a blank (post-partum) canvas you could say. And with the help of one sales associate who was probably under the legal drinking age, I walked out with an entire outfit. This all happened within like fifteen minutes. The best kind of shopping. ...There was a time when I thought I wanted to be a personal shopper. Do you like to shop? :)
