    Enjoy Lentils From Soup to Shanks

    This story originally aired Nov. 29, 2017. I like lentils and I love the spicy red lentil soup recipe Nancy Leson recently sent me. Adapted from Lynne Rossetto Kasper's The Splendid Table's How to Eat Weekends , this recipe is fast and easy to make, and perfect for rainy weeknight dinners, too. For a more time-consuming, weekend lentil dish, do try the lamb shanks and lentils recipe from another Kaspar – Kaspar Donier. You'll find both recipes below.

    Food for Thought: Northwest Bread Bakers rise to help local food banks

    Seattle Times columnist Nicole Brodeur recently published a story about a growing number of bread bakers contributing homemade loaves to area food banks. It was news to me, but Nancy Leson was already a participant.

    Food for Thought: The long wait for new appliances

    After 18 years in Nancy's basement, her backup fridge, a move-in gift from a neighbor, finally found its final defrost. That left Leson with only ( gasp ) one fridge. I enjoyed twitting her about her two-fridge household, but she really does need them both.

    Food for Thought: The case for toaster ovens

    “Stein,” Nancy Leson said. “You need a toaster oven.” I continue to maintain that I don't need no stinkin' toaster oven, but I must admit she makes a pretty good case.

    Food for Thought: Why have I ignored French cooking?

    Even I had to laugh. After all my years in the kitchen I'd never had much interest in a cuisine on the very short list of world's greatest. Then a YouTube video from the French Cooking Academy made me a believer.

    Food for thought: Sentimental objects of the kitchen

    “I don't know if it's because we've all been feeling extra emotional lately or what,” Nancy Leson told me. “But I've been thinking about the emotional attachments I have to certain kitchen tools.” She went on to describe the giant cleaver taking up real estate on their knife rack even though they never use it.

Gone for good

I’ve been a subscriber for a long time. I’ve bit my tongue, turned the other cheek, and stomached all of the lefty bs that you have aired until now. Your frame of reference is so narrow as to what is happening in the rest of the world. I’m a restauranteur whose business has been overtly affected by COVI-19 and to hear what others have gone through is encouraging. However, when you make EVERYTHING a political attack you are disenfranchising half of your listeners. It’s your right to post what you like, but it’s also my right to shut you out of my middle America life. Sorry, good day, and maybe more people will have the guts to quit your one-sided podcast.
