I think I need to do a whole series on food that “looks gross but I swear it tastes great!” Last night we had book club and I was thisclose to phoning it in and just bringing a bottle of wine. But then I was scanning Pinterest in the carpool line (shh… breaking the rules) and ran across the easiest recipe ever for lentil dip. Ready? Go to Trader Joe’s and buy:
- 1 package of cooked lentils (the vacuum pack in the produce section)
- 1 tub of bruschetta topping (refrigerated, near the hummus)
- 1 tub of feta
Dump about 2 cups of the lentils in a bowl. Add the bruschetta mix (I used the entire tub) and as much feta as you like. Stir. Season with salt, pepper and maybe a splash of red wine vinegar to taste. Refrigerate for a couple of hours to let the flavors meld. Serve with pita chips.
SO. EASY. I feel like I’ve made this before but maybe just ate it by itself? It’s way better as a dip.
I’m so tired. I got home late last night after book club (and a glass or three of wine) and crashed, and at some point during the night Isla climbed in bed with me. Around 4:30 I hear this little voice whisper, “Mommy, I think I wet the bed.”
YUP. SURE DID. And of course not her bed with the waterproof mattress cover. So she got to go back to her clean, dry bed while I attempted to strip our sheets and clean pee out of the mattress at 4am. These are the days, right?
Busy weekend! Soccer practice, birthday party, auction, first soccer game of the season… catch y’all on Monday!
