Well I won't think of anything for the cured meats... thanks but no thanks.

As for lentils, thats a great food! Lentil and vegtable stew is always good.

How to prepare lentil salad:

Buy 3 different varieties of lentils (chickpeas, lima beans, kidney beans, etc.). Wash thoroughly, making sure not to rub delicate coating off chickpeas. Place all three varieties in bowl, mix together, then feed to neighbour's dog.

Take box of chocolates out of refrigerator. Place on fancy plate. Uncork bottle of red wine and let breathe for 10 seconds. Pour glass. Sit in front of TV and watch summer re-runs of Lost.

Voila!

(chickpeas, lima beans, kidney beans, etc.)

Those are not lentils... those are beans no? Garbanzos (chickpeas), Lima Beans, Kidney Beans all beans... they are legumes and so are lentils but lentils are lentils. Green lentils, yellow lentils..

Lima Beans are good in soups, kidney beans are good in sauce.. garbanzos are good in hummus!

You are correct B!

So, take the green and yellow lentils, mix together (after thorough washing) in a bowl - feed to the raccoons!!!

Mix a batch of martinis, drink while deciding which chocolate ice cream you are going to eat during the "Lost" reruns. Once the martinis are gone, get out the bowls, scoop out the appropriate ice cream, smother in fudge sauce and settle back in front of the TV! ;)

I brought some Lentils about a year ago, with good intentions, they are still at the bottom of the pantry... if the racoons like em maybe I can feed them to the possums
