Lentils and Cauliflower with Mustard Lemon Dressing

There’s a little backstory to this dish that I thought was interesting.

See, back in the day, I ran another blog called SarahEatsAustin while I was in culinary school. This post came out during the beginning of my last semester and I wrote something along the lines of “I can’t wait to be done and free. I’m tired of feeling stuck” which is true. I definitely remember that part. But then I wrote something along the lines of “but maybe I’ll go back to school at some point. Get a bachelors. We’ll see”.

Well, little past me… You were right. Little did you know you would be back in school 3 years later going for your bachelor’s degree and funny enough, trying to make this whole blogging thing work once again.

It’s funny how life works out sometimes and funny how sometimes I think we all kind of know what we’re going to do, even if at the moment we feel like we’re just struggling to get through the day, let alone make plans for the next few years.

But anyway ya’ll, this dish is warm and comforting, a perfect fall dish for those cool nights that will hopefully be coming up soon.
