I have dedicated this week to cleaning out my fridge and pantry, which are beginning to overflow with remnants of meals past. Cooking for two most of the time, I always have leftovers and they just seem to pile up everywhere. For today’s pantry clean out, I was inspired by some yellow split peas, basically a yellow lentil, that I bought a while back and never used. I combined it with some veggies, frozen spinach, and to make it a complete meal topped it off with some chicken sausage. Although it is perfect on its own.
