Clean-out-fridge-lentil-soup

Since it's still freezingly cold here I've been cooking soup non-stop. And that always comes in handy when one's trying to use up whatever there is left in the fridge.



I threw together broccoli, bell pepper, carrots, onions, garlic, canned tomatoes and lentils and 45 minutes later enjoyed hot soup with chicorée leafs for spooning.

Now I feel like having hot chocolate and some of Katie's fudge babies. But I'm out of milk and nuts and pretty much everything else I'm craving at the moment. If I run to the supermarket, can I count that as my exercise for today? =p

When in doubt, make curry!

I believe we've all had those days where we just couldn't decide on what we felt like eating. So many possibilities, yet none of them convinced you really. I had that a couple of days back and decided you can never go wrong with Thai Curry.

So I cooked some spinach linguine and whipped up a curry sorta thing with broccoli (I could live off that alone, my ever favorite vegetable to eat), bell pepper, onions, coconut milk, green + yellow curry paste, curry and ginger powder and some pepper. On top of it I threw some mixed salad and cherry tomatoes.



And last night I had a salad that I topped of with coleslaw and mungbean sprouts. I forgot how much I love coleslaw. Can you blame me? I'm German... we don't get called "Krauts" for no reason =p



It's been so long since I updated this blog... I'll try to whip out my camera more often and revive this thing a bit.
