Sam's Toulouse Sausage, Bacon and Green lentils


I may not be a good cook but I can follow a recipe. So when Sam posted this yummy looking recipe last week I knew I had to give it a try, particularly as sausages are one of my hubby's favourite foods. Now we don't have a Fatted Calf so I had to make do with what the supermarket could offer, which I'm sure is an inferior Toulouse sausage but Mike won't know the difference.

Last night when I asked him for red wine for cooking (I wouldn't dare to raid the cellar as I would probably choose some special vintage he has hidden away) he went out and bought me a small bottle, it was just about the right amount.

It's an easy recipe and I think the end result looks something akin to Sam's and I can vouch that it tasted good having sampled just a soupcon for my lunch. I will now have to wait for the verdict from Mike!!

Sam Not sure I am keen on washing all the pans afterwards. I used up the last of my home grown toms had just enough. Beccy is also going to give it a try.

I love her too Sam and I get to have some more to-morrow. I was very good and I enjoyed it - inferior sausages or not.

I took this photo in the sitting room near a window where there was more light.

If I could get my husband to eat lentils I would make this.

Barbara I have never been a massive fan of lentils but these organic green were good- or maybe it was just the whole combination of tastes. Give it a try he might discover he does like them.
