Puy Lentil Salad
Welcome to Karyn and Hazzy (love the name of your blog)
I'm feeling really 'flat' today. After the lead up to the Birthday party, then having my friend stay and Samba fun at the weekend, it is now back to the same old stuff. Don't get me wrong, I usually like normal and routine, but I'm tired and feeling a bit weepy. This is the time when I usually eat comfort crap food, which does me no favours at all and just makes me feel even more miserable after the initial 'hit'.
Determined not to continue down this path, I made myself a simple meal of lentil salad. I had some home grown cucumber and spring onion, broad beans from the veg box, peppers, tomatoes, coriander all thrown in with some herb dressing. I've got some lovely mild goats cheese I will serve with it. It's very simple to make. I just washed the lentils and put them in a saucepan, 1 cup of lentils to 3 cups of water with a veg stock cube, brought to the boil and simmered for 20 to 25 mins until soft but still firm enough to keep their shape. Allowed them to cool then added the other ingredients. I have enough to take to work tomorrow and for the next day so no excuse to eat crap.
Music is as usual soothing me with a bit of the weirdly wonderful Godspeed You! Black Emperor (infinity) playing as I am typing.
I have tickets to see Elbow at the Eden Project tonight so I am hoping this will also lift my spirits. A truly beautiful song. The 'black dog' can stop sniffing around the door, it is not going to be let in.
Oh and I came back from the Supermarket and realised my very old comfortable jeans have worn through at the crotch. Lucky I had a long top over them!!
