Another Week with Lentils...

Tonight's supper was Awesome!
Well, I am thoroughly impressed tonight. I made the Red Lentil Curry, Brown Basmati and Chapati and it turned out so well that I am speechless really. The whole family liked it, especially the chapati (but there are bread lovers).

So on to this week's menu: (in no particular order)

That's pretty much it for this week. I did come across this recipe while surfing on Pinterest. It just looks so neat that I think it might be on the Christmas dinner menu...
