I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.

2 meals in one:Morrocan Lentil soup and Mujadarah

As a child my mother made lentil soup for us and we HATED it.  Now it's my turn to torture my kids with healthy food :).  I used a slow cooker Lentil soup recipe from here recipe and then I added ginger, cumin to make it into Moroccan Lentil soup.    I also added sliced bacon for flavor. With the left overs we will made some Mujadarah (lentils and rice) I liked this recipe b/c it had apples recipe.  Since I already made the lentils I won't be following the recipe exactly.  I will just add the cinnamon, curry, apples, raisins, garlic to a saucepan with oil and then mix in the lentil soup left overs and pour it over rice. Top it ith caramelized onions!  Healthy and Yummy!
