One moment it was nice around 60 degrees, next I woke to a snow storm!

While it was beautiful, white everywhere.  My daughter had a blast building a snowman. Hot cocoa wasn’t enough to keep us warm all weekend long. It wasn’t a sustainable solution. Although my little girl wouldn’t mind having a steamy cup of chocolates loaded with marshmallows all day.

Saturday night I decided to get us some slow-cooked soups to enjoy for lunch and dinner.okra red lentil soup

The discovery of a bag of frozen okra pleases me, I love okra. I try to include in everything, sometimes successfully, sometimes not so much!

There is nothing more comforting than a nice bowl of soup in this cold weather. The body craves it!

It was nice eating as i is and over rice for a bulkier meal accompanied by a green salad.


This okra red lentil soup will be great as meal-prep. It will do well stored in the fridge or in the freezer.

Feel free to add some curry for some fun!
