    I've decided I'm grazing tonight - already had a slice of leftover pizza. I could really go for a jalepeno popper right now though.

    I don't much care what I eat. I just wish my Dad was there with me to eat it.

    Here is the recipe, roughly. You may have to adjust quantities:

    Sautee in the bottom of your stock pot:

    1/2 stick of butter.

    1 very large onion or three smaller onions.

    1 head of garlic, chopped

    Stir over low heat until onions are soft.

    Give it a squirt of olive oil if anything starts to stick.


    Add:

    1 tsp coriander

    1 tsp cumin

    1/2 tsp (tea spoon) turmeric

    1/2 tsp fresh cayenne

    1 tablespoon black or brown mustard seeds


    De- glaze with a quart of chicken broth.

    Add a cup of pink (not brown!) lentils.

    Add three or four chopped carrots.


    Now is a good time to "juice" it with odds 'n' ends from the fridge. For example we usually have a little brine left over from olives or jalapenos. Toss half a cup of that in there.

    Simmer for two hours or until the lentils are soft if you can't wait.


    Finish it with a cup or two of tomato sauce and a few chopped apples about 15 minutes before it's ready.



    Here's the thing: You may need to adjust it. If it seems too thick add another cup of chicken broth. If it seems too thin add more tomato sauce or paste.

    My wife is an amazing cook in that she
    1) makes a really versatile array of ' comfort food dinners- from Italian, to meat loaf, to seafood, to Latino to Chinese but
    2) she kind of knows how to cheat, by in incorporating store-bought mixes into her recipes

    This week one of her best, Jambalaya!

    She actually uses the Zataran's Jambalaya rice mix, along with diced tomatoes, peppers/onions, seasonings, etc., then diced chicken breast, shrimp, Andoulie ( sp?) sausage- off the hook!

    Always served with Collard greens, and Jiffy ( mix) Cornbread muffins

    - leftovers tonight! Yay!

    Thanks for that. We do a lot of lentils and some good Indian dishes, so this sounds like a keeper.
