So I asked the kids if they had any requests for dinner this week. And what did my 8 year old ask for . . . out of everything he could think of?
I had to ask twice just to make sure I heard him correctly. Of course his little brother wanted French fries. . . guess you can't win them all. . .
Anyway, this is one of those recipes from my childhood that is stupid easy and all from the pantry. . . so it's not hard to make any time a kid asks and without having to go to the store.
- 8 oz dry lentils
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 can stewed tomatoes
- 8 oz tomato sauce
- 1/4 tsp celery salt
- 1/8 tsp garlic salt or powder
- In a pot, cover lentils and salt with 1" of water.
- Bring to a boil then simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add remaining ingredients and simmer until lentils are tender.
