Lentil Soup
This recipe is a nice base for a curry lentil soup! I omitted the oregano and basil, as well as the spinach (because I didn't have any), and sometimes the vinegar, and it was still delicious! I double the onion, carrots, and celery because it makes it a little heartier and creamier when I handblend about half it--makes it easier to eat with some whole wheat wraps, too. I was inspired by the ethiopian lentil soup I had, eaten with chapati. It's great with a twist of lemon before serving, gives it a nice, fresh balance of flavor, and a dollop of plain greek yogurt if you want to go all out, as a creme fraiche substiitute. This recipe calls for about 2 tbsps of indian curry powder.

The Best Mashed Potatoes
So I cheated a little and consolidated this recipe with the "night-before" mashed potato recipe... I had to make them for Thanksgiving (which was at my aunt's house, about two hours away, and to avoid traffic, we had to get up and drive there 10 hrs before dinner would be served). Only SUBSTITUTING half the parmesan cheese for it's equivalence of sour cream, garlic salt for the garlic since I didn't have any on hand, omitted the chives for the same reason, garnished with sprinkles of paprika, freshly grated salt and pepper, then baked the refrigerated mashed potatoes at 350 degrees, for 15-20 minutes... THEY WERE A HUGE HIT! Creamy, whipped-like, and flavorful. People who said that they didn't even LIKE mashed potatoes went back for seconds! I was nominated official mashed potato maker for every holiday occasion =) And there were leftovers of almost every other dish, except for these, which was almost licked off the entire tray, AND people were still asking if there were more. I had tripled the recipe! You just can't go wrong. Thanks for the recipe idea!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese
I did really enjoy the bread crumb crust, topped it off very nicely! My only complaint was that yes, it was a little drier than I expected, and not as cheesy as I prefer macaroni and cheese. I think the suggestion from other people was to add some milk? Next time! I used whole wheat macaroni, and it tasted just fine. I also reduced the fat on the cheese and sour cream as well. I'll definitely try it again, and pair it with a great ham or something, to accentuate the taste!
