  1. Hi! I’ve been trying your meals and am pretty happy at the speed and cheapness of them. Just so you know the recipe is wrong on here, it says 1/5oz tomato sauce and I believe you meant 15oz.

  2. Thank you for the recipes. Your baby is so beautiful. Just a quick question? Does it make a difference what color lentils you use in this recipe? I get mine in the bulk section at Winco and I’d love to know if any color will work. Thank you so much.
