5 Tips That’ll Make Bullet Journaling Faster and Easier — Organizing Tips from Kitchn

Bullet Journaling is a way to organize all of your thoughts, notes, goals, and events in one spot: a notebook. The creator of the methodology, Ryder Carroll, came up with this system so that, over time, it’s easier to track your progress, change your habits, and generally get more organized. You know, so you have more time for doing the stuff you actually want to do, whether that’s learning a new skill or cooking more with your family.

The problem with starting to Bullet Journal is that it can seem daunting at first. If you search for Bullet Journal inspiration on Instagram or Pinterest, what you find are elaborately decorated and overall complicated examples of what people who are really into it are doing. The mere fact that you don’t consider yourself artistic enough to pull one of those off could be a motivation-killer for most.

Recipe: Easy Slow Cooker Lentil Soup — Quick and Easy Vegetarian Dinners

A soup this easy to make should not taste this good; it should require a grocery list a mile long, your knife should dull from constant chopping, and you should have to clear your calendar for a marathon cooking session. Instead, a simple mirepoix (onion, celery, and carrot), chopped garlic, and a few sprinkles from the spice cabinet enhance canned vegetable broth to soften earthy green lentils with completely hands-off cooking. Smoky paprika and a spoonful of tomato paste give this vegetarian soup some much-needed depth and umami flavor. Wholesome and satisfying, this vegetarian lentil soup is how to reboot after a season of overindulgence.

This Cabbage, Sausage, and Potato Soup Is Perfect for Chilly Nights — Delicious Links

Soup is a warm and comforting hug during the winter months, but making a soup that is truly satisfying is something of a fickle beast. If you’re like me, finding something that sticks to your bones and makes you feel like you’ve eaten a meal versus drinking your meal can be a challenge.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a good bisque just like the next person, but sometimes I really want to sink my teeth into something. Enter: this hearty sausage and cabbage soup.

This soup was made three times in just a few weeks by someone who’s married to a vegetarian (read: she ate the entire pot herself). That’s how you know this is a recipe to keep, make, remake, and freeze for later!
