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

While it was beautiful, white everywhere.  My daughter and I had a blast building a snowman. Hot cocoa wasn’t enough to keep us warm all weekend long. It wasn’t a sustainable solution to fill our empty stomachs. Although my little girl wouldn’t mind having a steamy cup of chocolates loaded with marshmallows all day. I swear It’s all she wants to go for!

Saturday night I decided to get us some slow-cooked soups to enjoy for lunch and dinner the next day. Something easy with minimal cleanup as I still have a ton of work to catch up on. ( There is no rest for the wicked…) okra red lentil soup

The discovery of a bag of frozen okra pleases me, I love okra. I try to include it in everything, sometimes successfully, sometimes not so much! Okra and potatoes is never a great idea! Trust me!

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

It was nice eating as it is and over rice for a bulkier meal accompanied by a green salad for extra nutrition. ( doctor’s order, apparently I am not eating enough to sustain my iron needs) #thalessamia


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