The Little Things in Life

As someone on the brink of leaving the nest and the comforts of home, I’ve found myself spending less and less time at home and with my family. I had a revelation the other day that family is forever, and the most important thing in our lives. We can not break up with our families no matter how much we may want to, we can not spontaneously become ungenetically related to our siblings, and most importantly we can not ignore the unconditional, although tough sometimes, love that our families provide. I decided to cook dinner for my mother and little sister (my dad is currently on a business trip) and really sit and eat with them and have good conversation with them.

The soup was super easy, just follow the directions for cooking on a dried lentil package, pre sauteé a medium sized chopped onion and about three stalks of celery and add to the cooked lentils. Lastly add the chopped kale and cook until soft.

Enjoy!
