Perfect day, wonderfully healthy. Winning back my health

I slept in so no breakfast, just coffee. Leftover salad with smoked salmon and potato/leek/baby bok choy soup. I needed an afternoon snack so my go to grilled cheese a la waffle maker.

Dinner was superb, misir wot (Ehtiopian red lentils), first time I have made this dish. I sauteed a shallot in water, added 1 clove of garlic and then added powdered ginger, berbere seasoning and tomato paste. The berbere and ginger came from Penzeys. I love this shop, very fresh spices. Lentils were served with basmati rice, asparagus with a bit of sour cream and salsa. Totally love the lentils, will make them again!
