Dal Makhani

As with many days, I got too lazy to make this one night even though it's super simple. We were supposed to go to my husband's family cabin tonight to spend Thanksgiving weekend with his family. So, I thought cooking this ahead of time this morning and rewarming there would be a great healthy dinner before a day's worth of bad eating habits.

Turns out, the cabin's pipes are busted, and we're staying at home. The good news: it does indeed warm up nicely in a pot over the stove, and we didn't have to bother with cooking tonight. Straight to holiday drinking ;) I'll definitely keep it in mind for future cabin trips.
