Made bean dip:
2 fresh Box avocados mashed into guacamole with 1/2 lemon, salt, cilantro from the yard.
1 can refried black beans
1/4 cup? Victoria salsa
Sliced almond “mozzarella” cheese on top
Microwaved for 6 minutes to warm and melt everything

It was OK. Kyle makes it better.

Made basmati rice.

Made some delicious lentils:
Heated to a simmer over medium heat:
1 1/2 cups red lentils
1 can light coconut milk
1/2 cup or so of water

Meanwhile, fried in another pan:
1 chopped red onion
1 head of young garlic, chopped
1 tsp. chopped ginger
Black mustard seeds
Turmeric
Cumin
2 dried red chili peppers.

Dumped Pan 1 into Pan 2 and simmered till the lentils turned into a mush. Added a couple of teaspoons of soy sauce and some salt. Took off the heat and added the juice of 1/2 lemon and a generous handful of chopped coriander.

Also, polenta:
3 cups milk
1 cup cornmeal
1 tbsp butter
1 broth cube
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
pepper

Bring milk, butter, spices to a boil, then pour in cornmeal in a thin stream, whisking constantly, and keep stirring over low heat for about 10 minutes, until thickened and pulling away from sides of pan.
