Guess what? My first rate chum Angie was proper correct here in Cebu this final week!

In a superbusy week, we made it in and out of the market alive, soaked up a wee bit too a lot sun on the beach, and of course, played/sweated our afternoons away on the shelter.

Sometimes I truly sense like my consuming life is… hot and cold. And by hot and cold, I imply wholesome and unhealthy. Sometimes my first rate chum involves Cebu for the week and I eat, oh, I dunno, pizza by the pool. x200. Love.
This lentil salad is nice for that, so I made this for a form of RESET button on my consuming life after every week of holiday eating. It was a complete on-a-whim salad that simply kinda used everything I had on hand. And yummmmmm! It was so good! So lemony and recent and colorful. The lentils and bulgur (a small wheat grain) take up all of the taste of the sauteed tomato and garlic. Plus that citrus dressing and the recent parsley? Yes, yes, yes. I felt higher about myself after only one large ol’ bite.

I am also avoiding meals that contain hotness or warmness in any respect costs, and this salad suits the invoice simply due to the fact you’ll be able to devour it hot, proper once you prepare dinner it, orrrrr you’ll be able to devour it cold! COLD COLD COLD COLD COLD! That was me chanting “cold”.
Cold meals are making me so joyful proper now. I understand you guys assume you desire to be on this tropical heat, simply due to the fact it’s truly fun and beachy? right? People say that to me all of the time. And it’s fun and beachy throughout … the different months. But we’re within the summer season and I’m not often on the beach. So I’m simply gonna inform you – you don’t desire to be on this heat. Not with out this salad (cold version) or that gorgeous, life-saving invention we name air con.
Seriously, Filipinos name it air con.
