After an extensive lesson from my roommate Natalie on how to pronounce “pilaf,” this meal was officially complete. Never having made this strange pilaf thing before, I knew this meal was going to be an interesting, new adventure. First of all, the pilaf was made completely of vegetables, marking my official leap into the wonderful world of veggies. Second, I almost cut my finger off when I got a little too enthusiastic chopping the celery. Cooking with me is never boring, let me tell you!
The problem I have been facing lately is leftovers. I have been making all this delicious food to blog about, but I always end up cooking way more than my little belly needs. With such a dilemma, my normal pb&j sandwich lunches have been replaced by lasagna, lentil pilafs and enough homemade pizza to share with all my co-workers (true story). Tomorrow there is a BBQ at work, but alas I must bring this leftover salmon. I am guaranteed still buying a burger, make no mistake.
Since one of my co-workers Iffy (shout out!) requested that I start to post a link to the recipes I use, here it is – try it out!

This looks good…. Pilaf/Pullao… what’s the difference?
Well according to Wikipedia, they are the same thing, so good call! I totally had to google ‘pulao’ to find out what it was… I am such a cooking newbie!
omg… you should just become a chef, already! I read your twitter post, what was wrong with the salmon?
Hahaha, nothing was wrong with the salmon, it was just way more expensive than my minimal-cost lentils! Thanks for the chef comment though!
