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.
