Despite the first round of chemotherapy, Mike has retained his humor - and sarcasm.
I tried to make him some comfort food. Red lentil, ginger soup (thanks, Jennie, for the fabulous recipe). It's a beautiful, brightly colored soup full of fresh ginger and topped with feta and cilantro.
I did make a few errors along the way, some things got burned including my finger. I blended the ingredients at the wrong stage; the lentils shouldn't have gone into the blender. It ended up looking like baby food.
Mike took no interest in dinner and referred to it is "bolshevik soup." Whatever that means. I admit it wasn't pretty or as tasty as Jennie's version. I now have 5 quarts of soup in the freezer.
