SNOW AND LENTIL SOUP

Yesterday I spent the day burrowed into my nest. The jammies stayed on as I watched the snow fall, and fall, and fall. We had over 10" which almost matched our record one day snow total here in central Kentucky.


This morning as I sipped my tea watching the neighbors come out of their houses with snow shovels to help the cars that were getting stranded I decided it was a perfect day for some lentil soup. 

I love gathering together the fresh organic ingredients.


That's my mom's old fish cutting board. It helped in the creation of many years of delicious meals.

The soup is now simmering on the stove, sending wonderful smells throughout the apartment.


I guess I need to emerge from my cocoon and head across the street to take care of some errands. At least the sun is shining today and it is going to be a "balmy" 21 degrees. 


I plan to have on so many layers that no one will know who I am. Now all I have to do is figure out where in the heck I put that scraper for my car.

  1. You got a pretty snowfall Laura! Exciting. You are fortunate that it won't last long and the cold spell will be gone before you know it. At least I hope so!! Take care and be safe on the streets. Hugs. Pam

    1. Unfortunately it is going to get much colder before it gets better. Spring should be here soon, though :)

    1. Five feet is a lot of snow. I'm afraid I am not much of a snow bunny anymore. Isn't lentil soup wonderful? It was perfect when I came in from digging my car out. Now I just need a heating pad :)

  9. The soup sounds good. We have some snow, too, and I was thinking how pretty it was today, but I prefer seeing it from the warmth of my cozy home. I need to get out tomorrow, so I'm hoping the snow tapers off here as it has started to fall. Stay warm!

  10. we have been iced in...until Saturday. Cold temperatures and several inches of ice. We tried to clear the driveway today...2 hours literally cutting the ice with 2 root cutters...not that I plan to go anywhere until Saturday, when temperatures should go above freezing. 2 more days, 2 more days...

    1. I hate ice. I'm not a big fan of snow, but I would rather have that than ice. Please be careful, Daniela.

  13. I know it is not usual to have such a snow fall and freeze there Laura. I'm glad you were able to stay safe and warm at home. I love lentils sup! It is so delicious and does not need to boil for hours like other beans.
