agony – thy name is lentil

I’m trying to mix things up on the dinner front.  I’ve tried the bulk cooking thing and while I enjoy the ease of making a dinner that one can just pop into the oven I missed the fresher things and had a hard time remembering what was in the freezer.  Also didn’t care for the 8-hour cooking marathon.  Who has time for that?

Keeping things interesting is difficult at my house – I don’t care for loads of meat and Steve hates most vegetables…namely beans.  So I’m not sure what I was thinking when I decided to make a vegetarian version of sloppy joes out of lentils.  I told him we were having sloppy joes for dinner and omitted the fact they were made from beans.  Not a good idea, in hindsight.

Wonderful aromas wafting from the kitchen – sauteing onion, garlic and green pepper – what could be better?  Smells promising.  Then he sees the bag of beans.  I get the look.  The ‘Are You Trying To Kill Me With Vegetables Again’ look.  To his credit he tastes it and then turns it down.  That’s all I can ask.  Then he made a hamburger.

I live to cook another day.
