The usual. I am using both yellow split peas and lentils as protein sources. To be honest, I use them often in my cooking anyway, but usually with fresh tomatoes, other vegetables, or lots of spices. People forced into camps don’t have that luxury. This morning I’m thinking about a question: At what point does the rest of the world accept 30 to 35 million forcibly displaced people as business as usual? We go on with our lives while so many have no home, no livelihoods.

Rice. Just re-heated leftover rice in microwave. I am feeling tired, too tired to put yellow-spilt peas in a pot.
