John is feeling better (YAY!!), but there was still a little bit of Lentil Soup left. I started heating up a small pot of the soup on the stove.
Normally, I would have stuck it in the microwave, but I am trying to use it less. Not so much because of a "fear of radiation," although who really knows. I am using the stove/oven instead of the microwave to keep my kitchen cleaner. Crazy, right? NOT AT ALL! When the food is in the microwave, I spend the 1-2 minutes waiting. Impatiently. On the STOVE, however, I feel like I am cooking. There isn't a set time for it to be finished, so I straighten up the kitchen as I wait. Bonus? I wind up being MUCH more creative! Case in point? Lentil Soup Remix.
As it started to heat up, I added some plumped up raisins... some slivered almonds.... and some cinnamon. WOW!
Not using the microwave is going to be MMm MMm Good!
