Three days without lentils

After my off-putting lentil experience the other day, we’ve now gone 3 days without legumes. That’s probably the longest we’ve been without them in years! I wasn’t really sure what to make without them. It took a little hunting, but I found some delicious legume-free comfort food. I think the memory of the smell is fading now though. It’s time to get back to beans and lentils tomorrow.
