Lovely Lentils!

I tried a new lentil soup recipe yesterday and it was unbelievably good. I found it at The Vegetarian Group. The recipe is called Lentil Soup with Spinach, although I used collards since I didn't have any spinach on hand. We served it last night with Ruthie's cornbread recipe which is the simpliest cornbread recipe with the most consistently delicious results that I've ever encountered.

We've done more sprouting with excellent results. The whole family is getting a bit addicted to watching the sprouts sprout. Although my family assures me that they will eat them in Cold Thai Noodles forevermore, I need to find some more main dish recipes to use them in.

Tonight I'm heading out to a knitting class offered through the continuing ed department of a local school district. I really enjoyed last week, we learned the knit stitch (I'm not sure if I'm saying that right). Tonight we learn to cast on and then the fun really begins!

Katie -

I'm glad to see you're still liking my cornbread! :)

Knitting is great, isn't it? I'm just learning as well, I'm making and incredibly too wide scarf. I guess first projects are always forgivable!

I am enjoying knitting, although my skill level is pretty low right now. We have to pick our first project next week and I'm leaning towards a scarf as well.
