So, after taking Duke to Pampered Paws, his photo is at the end of this post, I drove around town and took some photos of the fresh fallen snow, it is beautiful.
You'll also find my delicious and unusual recipe for Lentil soup using "ancient grains" at the end of this post. I came up with the recipe after buying some fresh lentil soup at Trader Joe's. I read the ingredients, which used ancient grains (that's what the package said), and then set out to recreate this delicious soup. I think it's very close to what I bought, I hope you enjoy it!!

Sure some people like the stuff, it's great for business - in the mountains where it belongs! So, at the risk of sounding grumpy, because I'm really not, I'm just sick of the snow and the extreme cold, here are a few corny "snow jokes" for you to enjoy! After the jokes, you'll find my recipe for my delicious lentil soup! Keep warm!
Snow and Tell.
What do you call a snowman in the summer?
|Duke, fresh from Pampered Paws|
1 1/2 cups lentils, washed
2 14 oz cans chicken stock
2 14 oz cans beef stock
2 14 oz cans of Hunts fire roasted tomatoes
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 large carrot, diced
1/4 cup millet
1/4 cup flax seed
1/4 cup quinoa
2 tablespoons of good balsamic vinegar
Put all the ingredients, except the balsamic vinegar in the the crock-pot on low and let it simmer all day - it's delicious! When the soup is finished add 2 tablespoons of good balsamic vinegar, stir and serve! Sour dough bread is a nice compliment to this hearty dish!
