Lentils for Dummies ($1)

I have a friend who doesn't cook.  She lives above people who are constantly cooking Indian food, thus making her fiend for the heavenly spices and textures of Krishna's cuisine.  I am going to surprise her with this tonight:
1. Jar of dry lentils.
2. Jar of Indian spices.
3. Easy instructions on how to cook Indian food.

Here's what I did:
1. Purchase 1 bag lentils for 1 dollar.
2. Paper mache a glass jar.

3. Type, print, and cut out instructions for cooking lentils.

4. Glue instructions to pretty Mulberry paper. (Can be purchased at Dollar Tree for, you guessed it, one dollar.)
5. Wait for everything to dry.
6. Thread a pretty ribbon through the instructions.
7. Ta-da! 10 Indian meals in a jar!
8. Don't forget the jar of spices.

  1. This is adorable! And a sweet gift for a newly minted 'adult' who just got their first place. :-)
