Easy Curry Lentil Stew

Greetings!  Things have been so busy in these mountains lately!!  Baby girl is growing every second and I’m still feeling great (thanks to a healthy, meatless diet!)  She will be here in two months, ahh!  I’ve also been busy catering for the grand opening party of Habit Boutique on Main Street – stop by today for incredible clothes & accessories.  Thanks to the talented owner (and my sweet friend) Aly Osborn for going meatless for the event!

More recently, I was asked to speak at an event for Sage Mountain Animal Sanctuary for their Thirsty First Thursday series.  I was honored to support Sage Mountain and met some fabulous people up at the High West location at Blue Sky Ranch.

We also escaped to southern Utah for a long weekend in Escalante for some hiking and relaxation with no cell-service!  So nice to completely unplug sometimes and just enjoy nature…

So much going on!  Finally slowing down this weekend.  It’s been so nice and sunny out lately, but this weekend it’s overcast and stormy.  Perfect time to stay in, work on the baby’s room and make some warm, comforting lentil stew!  This recipe could not be easier, you just throw all ingredients in a pot and let it simmer away until soft and tender.  If you don’t like the curry flavor, you could add other herbs like Italian seasoning.  Hope you enjoy, and happy start of summer vacation to all you lucky teachers out there!
