Lentil Cookies

by Meghann on October 22, 2008

I came home this afternoon to a great big package waiting for me in my mail box.


My Lentil Cookies had arrived!! These were my prize for winning the Lentil BSI contest this week. As soon as I opened the package I knew I had to try one right away.


Yum! These cookies are perfectly crumbly and delectable. Who knew lentils would make such fabulous cookies? Thanks again to Shannon for sending me my wonderful prize. 🙂

I could have easily ate the whole bag of cookies for dinner, but I resisted and did make a real meal.


I put together two little Portabello Cap Pizzas


I cleaned out the mushroom caps and broiled them for 5 minutes until they were nice and soft. I then filled the caps with some tomato sauce, black beans and gorgonzola cheese. I popped them back under the broiler until the cheese was melted. These little pizzas are so simple to make and taste amazing.

With the Portabello Pizzas I made a small salad.


The salad consisted of spinach, carrot shavings, avocado, tomato and a tablespoon of Honey Mustard Vinaigrette.

For dessert I dug in for three more Lentil Cookies.


If Shannon wasn’t the one running the contest, I’m sure she would have won it with these little babies.

Before I left work today I did have an afternoon snack of a Kashi Blackberry Graham Cereal Bar.


I loved reading everyone’s family dishes from my afternoon post. Isn’t it funny how great food always create warm and fuzzy memories? 🙂 I hope one day my kids will be associating me with a dish I am famous for, but right now its fun trying to find my niche. I am brainstorming some new recipes to bring to make for the holidays and see if they catch on.

Time to do some laundry so I can pack for my trip this weekend. I can’t wait to watch my Noles kick some Hokie booty in Tallahassee this weekend.

The Other Half

October 22, 2008

When I know I am going to end up with left overs from a meal I usually wait and plan the leftovers into my meal plan a couple of days later. This way I don’t feel like I’m eating the same thing over and over again. I finally was able to enjoy the other half more »

DVD Work Out

October 22, 2008

I was so close to just resetting my alarm clock this morning, rolling over and sleeping in. I then realized I would have the opportunity to sleep in the next two days so I grudgingly got up at 5:45 and started my day. It’s all about give and take, right?   I received Kathy Smith: more »
