Toasted up some croutons this afternoon and mixed up a Caesar salad dressing. Going to start the pasta sauce soon. It's spaghetti night! But of course I make it way harder than it needs to be... 🤔 TBH I've never tasted a jarred spaghetti sauce I really enjoyed, so this way I get to make it the way I like.
Also with all the garlic, there will be no vampires coming for this family.
I ended up leaving my stew to soak on "keep warm" setting while I was out, and cooking it for a few minutes less than the recipe said, once I got home (9 min rather than 12, with quick release), and the lentils cooked through (I used French lentils) and the veggies were a little soft but not mush.
Will have to experiment further...
