The last couple of days have been cold. Cold, rainy, wet and gloomy.
I’ve been nursing a flu. Catching up on sleep. Reading a book. Staring out the window, watching the rain fall in the garden. And sipping on steaming cups of gen mai cha.
I made a HUGE pot of chunky winter vegetable soup with red lentils.
I made it Friday evening, and we were still eating it on Sunday.
Hee hee. It was DELICIOUS. Especially with crusty garlic bread. And especially since I varied the recipe to suit my own tastes (ie. threw together whatever vegetables I had in sitting my fridge and pantry).
We also braved the cold and went to a dinner party on Saturday night. We were served the YUMMIEST bowl of fresh spinach and ricotta ravioli in a creamy vegetable sauce. Sooo tasty. Now I’m all inspired to make my own ravioli too.
