Nourishing myself and preparing myself for a really busy day tomorrow. ? Luckily I have lots of leftovers of this red lentil chili remaining for lunch tomorrow to help fuel me. ? Will think happy thoughts and dream of chili for the time being. This chili is hearty and gets an extra kick from a little ginger and chipotle powder. ??
