My kids think they don't eat lentils...
For dinner tonight I made, ahem, pumpkin and coconut curry in the slow cooker. The "before" picture was taken at 11 am: pumpkin, onion, a little curry paste, vegetable stock cube, and (don't tell the midgets!) red and brown lentils. By 6 pm it had cooked down to an unappealing brown sludge, which was nonetheless delicious, especially after adding a 185 mL can of coconut milk. And the kids liked it and are none the wiser. I served it with half brown, half white rice and steamed broccoli and beans. The adults added lime pickle to the mildly spiced curry.
For dessert Thomas got to choose among my canned fruit selections as we are all out of fresh produce.
