Last week, we tried several new meals and I'm happy to report they were all successes! The lentil chili was both delicious and hearty. Just as satisfying as my regular ground beef chili. And Reedy could not get enough of it! Next up, the tuna tabouli. I was a little apprehensive about the bulgar wheat. But the dish was excellent! A nice, hearty summery salad. Almost like tuna salad but without the mayo LOL! I also made stuffed peppers using the Hillbilly Housewife's taco style lentils & rice. I added corn, onions and tomato sauce to the lentils & rice for the peppers. Dave and my Mom raved about the peppers. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling well that night so it was just scrambled eggs for me :)
