Yesterday we went car shopping. It is as bleak as you have read. But our lease is expiring in February so we thought we should take a look at what is available. Short answer, not much. In fact although we were looking at a car that was not our first choice and we offered to pay or lease off the sticker price, it was not enough for the price-gouging vultures at the dealership. We walked and hopefully will be able to find something as the supply chain improves. I am saying this to explain why we did not go with the plan for dinner.
After getting home close to 6 PM we decided to make lentils with turkey sausage because it is easy and we had all the ingredients. I have to admit that this was the perfect comfort meal. By 7 PM it was ready to eat. I loved all the vegetables and just a little bit of turkey sausage, the perfect dinner after a stressful day.
NOTE: This is easily a vegan or vegetarian meal with the omission of turkey sausage and substitution of vegetable stock for chicken stock.
