Carrots and Lentils in Olive Oil

I found this recipe via one of my numerous rss feeds (yeah, I know, rss is supposed to be dead, go figure). I cooked it up this weekend, minus the mint, and it was very tasty. Jean agrees, Renee opts out due to her aversion to cooked carrots.

One thing I learned is that one does not need to soak lentils before cooking them. The dish tastes fine, but I'm afraid by the time I finished cooking it, it was more of a porridge than a lentil dish. I'll try adding the lentils (washed but not soaked) later in the recipe, and add less water so it doesn't need to boil down so long.

Note to myself: once I have revised this recipe to suit my tastes, record the differing version here.

First Post!

...of 2011, that is.

I don't think I'll be posting much this year, just too busy. But I got tired of staring at the banner picture. I mean, the woman is cute, but the guy? Creepin' me out! So I dug this picture out of Easter 2006 (see if your kids are that 'happy' on Easter).

Anyway, I also missed posting about the tenth anniversary of this weblog, which was in October. Given my general absence, it seems appropriate.
