A friend posted this question on Facebook over the weekend-- she asked who'd inventoried the contents of their pantry (and/or freezer) and found a supply of something they weren't quite sure how to use. She, and others, then replied with ideas and recipes using that item.

I have enough lentils to stock a lentil store, I have no idea why I have so many of them. I guess because I keep reading how healthy they are-- but they're not doing my health any good sitting in the pantry! My mint plant escaped its pot this winter and has taken over a corner, so that also goes on my list of what I have in excess. I foresee mint and lentil salads in my future!

So let's play that game: What do you have on hand that you're not quite sure what to do with? Email me, or post your ingredient/question to our Facebook Fan Page. I have hundreds of cookbooks to pull ideas from, plus thousands of recipes that have run in the magazine over the past 8 years.

Have a great week, wash your hands, and don't touch your face!

Best regards,
