Saturday Plan

Well here it is, the last day to complete a full week of dinners at our house, plus some sweets! I do have one request. If you like my blog please consider following it. There is a link on the left side of the page that allows you to follow me. There, now I know you really want to see what we are eating and how I am cooking it. Leave a comment too. If you try a recipe please let me know how you liked it or how you would change it. I also like to learn. Have a family favorite email it to me and I will try it and post it when I do. Today's stew is hearty. I do serve it with some french bread and butter. The bulgar actually resembles ground beef and is very filling.

Lentil Stew
3 c dried green or brown lentils
14 c vegetable or chicken stock
2 tbsp salt
1/3 c olive oil
3 onions, chopped
2 c bulgar
I do have chicken stock in the freezer so I will us that and maybe this weekend I will post on how to make your own stocks.

Cook the lentils, stock, and salt on high for 30 minutes. While that is cooking saute the onions in oil until tender. Add the bulgar to onions and cook another 2 minutes, stirring. Add onion mixture to lentils and continue to simmer for another 15 minutes or until lentils are soft. If you have left overs it will thicken up so just add some water or more stock.
Possible toppings~
sour cream

How simple was that? Try it and rate it for me under the comment section with 1-5 stars, 5 stars being the best score.

Have a grand weekend!
