This a recipe for majdra, a lentil and onion dish that I make a lot. It's delicious and easy and pretty cheap.

1 c. uncooked lentils
4 c. water
1 lg. onion, chopped
1/2 c. olive oil
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. cumin
Salt to taste
1/2 uncooked rice

Rinse lentils and put them in a saucepan with the water. Boil for 20 minutes on medium heat. Saute chopped onions in oil. Add onions and oil reside to the lentils along with the rice and seasonings. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. May be eaten hot or cold.


I had two of my wisdom teeth pulled yesterday. It went fine - the most unpleasant part was that my dentist is someone who likes to fill time with small talk, even as the novacaine was taking effect and I couldn't feel my face, let alone speak coherently. And it's weird that even with all the advancements in medicine and dentistry, tooth extraction is still pretty much "grab onto it and pull really hard." Afterwards I wanted to get some stuff at Whole Foods and my mom, who was taking me home, said it was fine, though I had a Hyperbole and a Half moment trying to ask her about it with a numb face and cotton in my mouth. I have some prescription pain pills now, which make me kinda loopy.

And I'm trying to color my hair red. Well, red-ish, since I know it won't actually be red without bleaching it. I've got the henna in, which is difficult and messy to do on your own, and now I'm just waiting until I can wash it out.
