Portobello Mushroom Lentil Soup
Fast, Easy, Simply delicious. I used Baby Bella mushrooms and four tablespoons of fresh basil but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. VERY good!!!!!

Roasted Chicken with Risotto and Caramelized Onions
A lot of work...flavor of rice tasted better BEFORE adding carmelized onions. Smelled better too (odor of onions turned me off after being added to rice mixture). Very surprised though on how much arborio rice swells. Wow! 1 1/2 cups is like 10-12 cooked. Careful single folks! I had so much left over it was silly.

Beef Curry Soup
Easey, tasty, excellent. May want to make beef pieces smaller so they remain tender though. Other wise VERY good and perfect for a cold winter day.
