Dinner Tonight - 09/15/2010

I was digging through the pantry cupboard today and discovered a forgotten bag of green lentils...and instantly, I knew what we were going to have for dinner: Split Pea Soup.  Yeah, it's not really Paleo but ever since the weather turned cool last week, I've been in the mood for soup.  And what better way to use up the homemade vegetable broth I made last week, along with all of the "interesting looking " (aka - close to rotting) vegetables in the crisper.

My dinner tonight included:
  • Split Pea Soup with a hearty drizzle of olive oil on top
  • Broccoli (frozen from Target)
The kids ate:
  • Split Pea Soup (this was the first time they'd ever had and they LOVED it)
  • Broccoli
  • half a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (with extra PB for the fat and protein)
  • half a pear
I had 1.5 small bowls of soup tonight (probably equating about 2 cups) and loved every bite of it. I think the veggie broth brought over the edge from good to "spectacular".  Once the leftovers cook, I'm going to bag them up in freezer bags and toss them in the freezer for the next time I start craving a hearty soup.  ;-)
