Almost five years ago, in front of this enormous fireplace we promised our lives to each other :)
I remember when we were at the lodge planning our wedding they were setting up for another wedding. They were covering the great room with a zillion yards of tulle draped from white columns. A fabric covered board was inserted in front of the Lewis & Clark painting above the fireplace. They even wanted the tapestries taken down (the lodge refused.) I couldn't help but wonder why choose the lodge if you want to change everything about it.
We loved the look and feel for our wedding day. Gratuitous wedding picture ahead :)
Back into town. It is always such a pretty drive I hate to see it end. However, I love this view of the bluffs, trains, flour mill and river coming together always makes the end of the river road drive a little easier.
Slow Cooker Indian Spiced Lentils.
My niece is a big fan of Indian food - it is kind of our thing to meet for lunch at the local Indian place. We have talked about trying to create more of it at home. Since I am a recent convert to lentils and I am trying to use my slow cooker more this recipe seemed to be a perfect fit.
Sometimes, I still can't believe...I eat lentils. I had such bad experiences with them when I was younger I thought I would hate them forever.
I found another crock pot Indian recipe that I will be trying soon. It has potato dumplings in it. It sounds a little more labor intensive before the crock pot phase, but some days I don't mind that.
