1. Four new canisters arrived at the front door and now they are filled with oatmeal, flour, sugar, and brown sugar. The kitchen reorganization continues apace.
2. The Deke bought a small LED lamp she keeps at her side when she's sitting on the couch, mostly to give her better light when she knits and reads. I took this lamp out to the kitchen and illuminated my cutting board while doing some soup prep chopping. I loved having the extra light and I think I'll be bringing that lamp out to the kitchen more often when the Deke's not using it.
3. Lentils. Chickpeas. Onion. Ginger. Cumin. Tumeric. Cloves. Tomatoes. Vegetable stock I made a couple weeks ago. Kale. Parsley. Cilantro. Lemon. A couple of beaten eggs. Let this combination of ingredients simmer in a pot and soon you can fill bowls with steaming Harira from Morocco. I ate mine with a spoonful of yogurt and put more cilantro on top. The recipe is here.
