Nice Weekend

Had a pretty good weekend. Went to a cafe and spent a couple hours writing today. I wrote just shy of 1900 words, putting me nicely ahead of the word count target. Good start.

Made lamb and lentil stew for dinner tonight. Lentils are really underrated. Credit to Kit for suggesting it.

It's pretty straightforward: brown the lamb in a pot with a little oil. Add sliced onions and sautee. Then add a splash of red wine to deglaze and some carrots. When that's cooked down a bit, set it aside.

Fill the pot with water and beef broth and cook your lentils. Don't use too much liquid unless you want a really soupy result. When the lentils have mostly cooked (a good half hour), add the other mix back in along with some spices. I used cinnamon, rosemary, grains of paradise (pepper), paprika, sage, and salt.
