Dinner - Three Nights

This week I felt the slight pull to try new recipes.

Monday night was a new pasta dish. Pasta with asparagus, bacon, toasted pine nuts, and a lemon olive oil glaze. Yummy. You can find the recipe here.

Tuesday night was a new soup fresh off the pages of the April Everyday Food Magazine. Caramelized Onion & Lentil Soup. The photo doesn't quite do it justice, but the soup was wonderful and the caramelized onions gave it a really nice flavor. A dollop of whole milk plain yogurt topped it off to add a nice cream. The only thing missing was a nice loaf of crusty bread to dip in it!

Wednesday night was leftover night. I sauteed up the leftover asparagus from Monday, and I mixed the leftover lentil soup into some prepared orzo. This is actually a really nice way to use up a cup or two of leftover soup. I also sauteed some sliced mushrooms to mix in. Served with chicken, this didn't feel like leftovers!

Something New

A little push from a friend, and it seems I am back in Kindergarten... coloring my way to card making. This just shows that minimal supplies can have quite a cute outcome, and that I am happy I have saved that box of crayons for more than 5 years now.
