Here's a delicious thrown together soup with all kinds of odds and ends. This has red and green lentils, a handful of pinto beans leftover from last night's dinner, potatoes, and some broken rice noodles. Seasoned with nooch, Italian seasoning, and fennel seeds. And also a bit of tomato paste lingering in my fridge that needed to be used. Hearty, filling and super cheap. Fennel seeds give lentil soup a sausage-y flavor. There's just something about throwing a bunch of random stuff in a pot that always works!
Yesterday for breakfast I made these chunky potato wedges seasoned with garlic and curry powder. I also made a spicy thousand island. I used sriracha ketchup, Just Mayo and sweet relish. It was sweet and spicy and really tasty.
I had a few corn tortillas hanging in my fridge that I needed to use, but I wasn't in the mood for soft tacos. So, I decided to make tostadas! I just baked the tortillas until they were nice and crunchy, and added some potatoes and pinto beans cooked with Trader Joe's chili lime seasoning. That stuff is really great by the way. I also made a little spicy slaw to go on top. This hit the spot! It was my first time making tostadas, and it was a success! I know they sell tostada shells at the grocery, but these were cheaper and oil free to boot. They only take like ten minutes to get crispy. I used the last of my cholula to top these lovelies. I've now run out of green dragon sauce and cholula. It's safe to say I'm in panic mode!
Can you even handle the fluff? I know I can't, it's just almost too much! My two little grey beauties!
And here's one of Kanye's favorite places to sleep. On an old sheet and sweatshirt that I never wear in the corner of my closet. She and Etta duke it on the regular for this spot!
