Hey all I realize I have been MIA for a while. I’m not sure why but this move has taken the longest ever to get settled after. I’ve moved over 10 times in my adult life, so I feel that statement says a lot.

Anyways, things are FINALLY getting settled and the kitchen is actually usable. So the hubs and I are trying to get back to cooking our meals, as apposed to eating out every day. So it seems fitting that my first post back to be a recipe. 

My goal was to try and make something from what we already had. That was beans, lentil and lots of crushed tomatoes, thank you Costco. I wanted something warm as it is starting to get colder. So I decided to make chili with lentils instead of meat. 

The result was FANTASTIC! I’m actually not much of a chili person. Anything tomato based tends to give me wicked acid reflux, but this didn’t! And it was super yummy! Enjoy!
