quick and easy veggie coconut curry with black beluga lentils...and beachgreens arrival today!

this is a quick and easy dish that you can throw together at the last minute. its hot and summertime and the last thing anyone wants, even those of us who actually prefer to slave away in a hot kitchen, is to slave away in a hot kitchen when there are remote control cars to kick ass, beaches to romp in and robots to build in the dirt.

also, we are receiving our first beachgreens crate of fresh veggies and fruit. is a local company in long beach, dedicated to bringing fresh, organic and sustainable produce from the southern california farms to your door. the prices are crazy reasonable and it seems with this deal i will be saving about 30$ of what i normally spend a month. plus, the variety is so exciting for this mama. according to my confirmation email we will be receiving a nice bounty of: red leaf lettuce, tomato, carrots, leeks, avocado, white nectarines, romano beans, zucchini, persian cucumber, murkott tangerines, yellow peaches and strawberries. i have a meaty rack of baby back ribs slow cooking its way to my belly in the oven right now and i am sure it will be smiling on a plate next to our new bounty.
