Traditionally you eat lentils at the beginning of the year, but in the first week of January it just didn't happen at Pale Rose. It is supposed to bring luck. Mom did mention a few times she would LOVE to eat our family's favorite Lentil Stew this month... So I made it for her this week :)
Mom would say not to worry but that's a tricky thing to do, even though I promised I wouldn't. Following a recipe & making it from scratch does help. When the stew was taking shape and I had to stir in the pan, the smells and warmth coming from the stove did replace those nerves.
Wanting to add some variety to our meals I did find something that looked promising. I remember my friend S. telling me that she had this once (with her sister?) & liked it. So I brought it home for Mom and myself, Dad is not a fan of "the Goat" :D
Yes, I baked these little goats cheeses in the oven and we dipped some of that bread which Dad sliced earlier into it... Fabulous!!! Now this is a dip I loved ;) It really tasted cheese-like and that's something I had missed. Scavenger hunting in the shops for interesting edibles that we can eat paid off this time. To be repeated soon I'd say.
How's your week been? Had fun? Cooked anything with lentils for luck? Felt good? Or did you go to the doctors? Been checking every label like me? Went for a walk? Enjoy warm goats cheese for lunch/dinner? Anything else??? Would love to know!
