So, we went from brutal summer heat to winter overnight. We even had over an inch of rain (that’s slightly less rain than we had all of last year!), which is highly unusual in that we normally don’t have rain between April and October.
It’s been like winter here. That was enough for us to break out the flannel house-pants and hearty winter recipes. Jane made a recipe called Lebanese Style Lentils with Pasta for dinner the other night. It’s from the Dr. Neal Barnard Book on being a vegan. The pasta seems a little weird to me, but it all tasted yummy. It’s got lentils and spinach and onions, etc. Next time, Jane said she’ll skip the pasta and have a loaf of some crusty whole grain bread along with the dish.
