The ever-filled pot

So last night I took out a quart container of lentils that had been in the freezer since 2008 or so. There was a little ham in them when I cooked them the first time, but I wanted to throw in some more to increase the flavor (I really wanted sausage, but couldn't find it), so I found some of that in the freezer too. Then I added water so the whole thing would cook properly, then some broc on top to steam as a vegetable.

Ate my fill, and what did I put in the fridge? A brimming quart container of lentils.

Tonight, I'm attacking it again, and I threw in some carrots and a little couscous to thicken the broth. If the container is full again, I don't know what I'm going to do.

I go through / re-work pots o' soup / stew like that, too. Eventually I get through it. :-)

Success!
Tonight I threw in another carrot, a small helping of rice, and a bigglug of the red wine that's been sitting on the counter for a while. I was hungry enough for a second helping, so now it's gone.

Tomorrow either will or won't be the merguez out of the freezer cooked with a pile of brown rice and sweet and warm peppers.

I have that happen with bookshelves. I take a whole box of books to donate, and then a day or two later I find the bookshelves are overflowing again. (And the piles beside the bookcases never seem to shrink...)
