I'm all turned around this week. Jim's working a later shift and its throwing a monkey wrench into the works. Last night I made Mac Uncheese and added cooked lentils to make it a little heartier. It was a nice addition and everyone enjoyed it.
Before bed I put some red kidney beans into the slow cooker. Its such a great way to have the beans tender when you're ready to use them. I tried a little experiment with them. I filled Jim's 1 liter thermos about half way with the cooked beans, added a generous amount of cooked, shredded swiss chard, a tablespoon of vegetable broth powder, and some uncooked bulgur. I finished by filling the thermos with boiling water and shaking it to mix the ingredients. I'm curious to hear how it turned out when Jim gets home tonight. If it worked out well this offers me more lunch options not only for Jim but for the kids too.
