New Year, Old Me

honolululady

No real resolutions for 2017.  I would like to get serious about playing my ukulele so that’s going to be a goal for me.  I’d like to do a better job of blogging too, but I can’t figure out what direction to take with it.  I do enjoy sharing recipes so I know I’ll continue to do that.

I have  some milestones  coming up this year.  My 70th birthday in March, and our 30th anniversary in October. No plans yet for either event.

I made a delicious lentil soup last night.  Here’s what I put in it.  I used the slow cooker, but it could be made in an Instant Pot or on the stove top.

Lentil with Ham Soup

1 pound lentils
1 ham bone or smoked hock
2 shallots, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 quarts chicken stock
1 can diced tomatoes with celery/peppers/onion
1 tsp.  dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste

I used the ham bone just to flavor the soup.  I didn’t pick the meat off into the soup.

Happy New Year!
