Bento #54: Did I Say Hiatus?

Lentil soup (which is very hard to photograph to make look appetizing btw), 
honey-wheat bread, and strawberries and blueberries. (approx. 320 cal)

s-so when i said i'd be awhile i didn't count on my wonderful awesome lovely mom coming up to visit and take me shopping hee <3;

i have no longer eaten myself out of house and home

just wait until next month if you're here for the dregs-of-the-cabinets bentos

for today have some soup i made 

i'd never tried lentils before last night but i figured what the hell

cheap and full of protein can't beat it

overall that pot of soup cost maybe $2 to make tops

and it is delicioussss

have a recipe because i'm nice like that
reeeeally hard
delicious lentil soup (barely adapted from vegetarian.about.com)

1 tsp vegetable oil
1 whole onion, diced
1 carrot, sliced
3-4 mushrooms, chopped
4 cups chicken broth (i didn't have vegetable HA VEGETARIANS)
1 cup dry green lentils
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp dried thyme
2  bay leaves
1 dash salt
1 tbsp lemon juice

1. sautee all the vegetables in a big pot in the oil for about 5 minutes or until the onions are see-through and the carrots are softer
2. add everything else except the lemon juice and bring to a boil
3. turn the heat down and cover and simmer until the lentils are done (about 45 minutes but it took me closer to 50 hurp)
4. fish out the bay leaves and add the lemon juice right before serving


  1. Yeah dude I was confused for a minute when I saw you got the recipe from a vegetarian site and "chicken broth" at the same time. xD

    That was sweet of your mommy :3

  2. it was the best i could do haha i could've made my own vegetable broth but i really didn't feel like going the extra mile so yyyyay
