Recipe for today, Lentil-Rice stew

Lentil- Rice Stew

5 cups water
1 cup of Lentil of choice
1/2 cup brown rice
1 cup chopped celery tops
1 med onion, chopped
2 cup potatoes, cubed
2 cups carrots, sliced
1/4 cup parsely, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot add water, lentils and rice.  Bring to a boil and then simmer Lentils and brown rice until nearly cooked.  Add in the remainder ingredients.  Cook over medium heat until vegetable are tender.  I also like to add a 1/2 tsp if dried oregano, this is up to you while vegetable are softening you can taste and see.  We love oregano in this house and is very good for you.  It will be in one of the post next week.

Project for today.                

Thanksgiving Jar and/or Count your Blessings.  This is a time to be thankful for all our family, friends, faith, and health.  Chose a jar in the house to collect beans and lentils in.  Every time someone in the house does something nice for someone else, add a bean or lentil. You can also add beans for Blessing, be creative.   At the end of Lent, or Easter weekend, we will make up a stew of good deeds that will taste oh so good!   Let us watch the jar fill up and then we will fill up our belly's.  See a pretty way to decor your Good Deeds Jar or Blessing Jar here.
If you would like a invite to Pinterest, I would be happy to send you one.  Just leave your email in comments or send me a email asking for Invite.  I will be posting lots of crafts and recipes from here.
