10 cup thermal coffee maker...for less!

For about $23 you can have a thermal pour over coffee maker.  If you buy the Melitta set, it will cost $31 - $37.  It is important that you buy a wide mouth carafe so that the filter cone will fit perfectly inside the top of the carafe.  I bought my carafe from Walmart.  It looks exactly like the one pictured but it is the Aladdin brand for the same price.  Of course, you can get reusable cloth #4 cone filters from me here!

Red lentil sausage stew

I absolutely love the Vegan Lentil Soup from the Fresh & Easy markets.  Not being vegan & hoping if I added meat my family might eat it, I had to try it like this.  I started off with what appeared to be a delicious vegan lentil stew recipe here:  The Perfect Vegan Lentil Stew

It looks just like the one at F&E market!  Mine does not.

I basically followed her recipe but added a keilbasa sausage and used red lentils.  It's delicious!  Thank you, Gluten-Free-Vegan-Girl!
