kheer + spicy ginger lentil soup

I can’t take credit for either one of these, but they were both FABulous. I ate the soup for a week (or more) and didn’t once get tired of it. It’s SUPER ginger-y, though! I think I added a little

maple and mustard-glazed salmon…(gluten-free) sandwiches!

This is another Serious Eats find that I loved. It was at least a month ago that I made it, but, hey, it’s been a busy month! At least I’m finally getting around to it. Here’s the link to the Maple

gluten-free fettucine with bacon, brussels sprouts, cranberries, and caramelized onion
