Happy Friday! When this recipe started out – I was planning on preparing roasted turkey with a cranberry glaze as a tester recipe for Thanksgiving. About mid way through after I had started roasting the turkey legs, I switched gears as I roamed through the pantry. I noticed a bag of lentils calling my name [...]
