((The mashed potatoes are really good, okay?))
This salad is the perfect reset after a weekend of eating things that seemingly all contain massive amounts of cream, cheese, and/or cream cheese.
It’s super easy to make, so your food-fatigued body doesn’t have to do much work. Plus, it’s really good for you.
This healthy and easy lentil salad combines chickpeas, tmatoes, cucumbers, and olives with herbs like basil, parsley, and dill as well as lentils for a delicious side or entrée!
I hope your Thanksgivings were all lovely! If you have a moment, read this short essay about the real foundations of Thanksgiving and how it relates to indigenous politics today. Let’s not forget our own history.
