red lentil burgers

It's been too long, but I've been busy. Writing. Being a host to my friend. Church. Creating. Making decisions. Uni classes. Everything is going to be calmer soon, next week. Everything will hopefully go back to normal and I will stop obsessing, at least a little bit, and I will be back. 
In the meantime, some recent snacks. No meat, no sweets during Lent, so I'm figuring out new dishes and I've decided I could eat these burgers and sushi rice with egg omelette for the rest of my life. It's probably exaggerated, but I am happy with the decision for the moment.
