three’s a crowd: green lentil soup with coconut milk & warm spices

Green Lentil Soup with Coconut Milk and Warm Spices | Everybody Likes Sandwiches

Clearly, I am the reluctant food blogger. This space has taken a back seat to work. I now have 2 jobs – co-owner of a web design business that I run with my husband and now a hobby-turned-real-live-business, my greeting cards. It’s exciting to have 2 businesses that mean so much to me, but it also drives my life right into Crazy Town. I’m trying to find a balance between working and not working and somehow not having all my remaining free time gobbled up by True Detective (but seriously, that show, is just too freakin’ good). I’m trying to keep all my January intentions on the up and up. I did get the most comfortable short boots (thank you, Blundstone), I’m working on being outside more, and me and soup are back to being best buddies.

I wish my husband was cheering the soup thing right along with me, but we all have our things to work on. Don’t let my shoddy photos fool you, despite what’s depicted, this soup was a beautiful thing.

    I’m missing your frequent blog posts but I’m super stoked to hear that your card business is taking off! Yeah! Mmm, your lentil/coconut milk dish sounds like something I would enjoy. I love lentils and really miss eating them but have found that after not eating them for a while (6 months) they really don’t behave in my gut now.

    You’re the 2nd person to endorse True Detective. I’m starting to think I’m missing out on something. I’m anticipating new seasons of Mad Men and Orange is the New Black. Adding a 3rd tv series to my life will keep me homebound for good. We still have plenty of cold and snow on the ground so cozying up with a bowl of popcorn and a gripping tv show isn’t so bad, right?

    That’s awesome that you turned your hobby into a business! You have such great talent and your illustrations make me smile. πŸ™‚
    This soup sounds delish- warm, comforting and something I need to have right now.

    Thanks Katrina, it sure is πŸ™‚

    Joanne, it’s a wonderfully warming soup!

    Cheri, thanks…but working is still WORK even if it’s something you love.

    Thanks Arthur.

    Oh, that totally sucks, Joanne. I love lentils & I’d hate to miss out on them. And I love a good tv show…with popcorn πŸ™‚

    Thanks Tiffany πŸ™‚

    Indeed, Aqiyl!

    I can relate to this on so many levels – including the True Detective obsession (so sad it is over!). Balance is elusive but hopefully you’re managing to have some ‘me’ time in there πŸ™‚
