smoothies and curry

Not together of course! Breakfast for D today was a spinach omelette with some shaved parm. The spinach I just cook in water with some garlic powder (she loves that) then run through food mill. Added to omelette and sprinkled the shaved parm on top after.
She also got a smoothie! Yes, because now she is perfecting drinking from a glass and the novelty of it just thrills her. So, thicker liquids work better for her than thin, obvi. So, today's smoothie was frozen blueberries, raspberries and cranberries, one banana, two pears and whole milk yogurt plus wheat germ. We all had the same smoothie, which also thrills D.
Lunch today is curried lentils. I used French (Puy) lentils but those aren't the greatest as they don't tend to soften. So, apparently, these lentils are great for adults and to put in salads. Whoops! I bought them cuz they sounded cool and would give D a change up from her usual red lentils. Didn't find out about their consistency til I looked up recipes online.
So, I cooked up the lentils with dried cranberries, but cooking until the cranberries are softened, then added curry seasonings - making it up as we go along (cumin, turmeric, coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves). Also made some pureed peas and almonds to go with this.
