Coming home to home cooking.

We traveled to the homeland to enjoy time with family.  We ate tender braised beef that had been raised right there on the ranch.  We ate sweet corn grown by my aunt–and just about the only area sweet corn that has managed to survive the drought.  We ate party foods–pizza, potato chips, and cotton candy and sno-cones from the Sheridan County Fair.  We ate, ate, ate and ate

It was all good food.

And when we came home, my 11 year old cooked us a supper of boring lentils and boring cornbread.  It was quiet around the table except for passing the salt and honey butter.   Somebody piped up, “I’m so glad we’re home and eating lentils.”

Me, too.

Lentils are kid food.

Brown lentils, red lentils, red lentils with curry, lentil soup–my kids just love lentils.

Last night at supper, Margaret was singing the praises of brown lentil gravy, which is more accurately called the bean broth.

Does someone in your family love lentils?  Post a pic here.

Do you like lentils?  Go out today and tell someone.  Show someone how to cook lentils.  Serve lentils to someone you love.  Post a lentil recipe on your facebook page.  Ask your grocery store to carry lentils.  Go to an Indian market and swoon over the many colors of lentils.

Or you can just stop by here for lunch–we’re having lentils.
