I did post the one successful recipe I had from last month's challenge here: http://www.everythingupclose.com/2012/04/lentil-barley-salad.html. This recipe happened to use both of my challenge ingredients. Unfortunately, my husband and I weren't too crazy about the other recipes we tried so I decided not to share them with you. Why share bad recipes with my readers?! We are hoping that this month's recipes are a bit more successful.
I will still be trying to incorporate barley and lentils in hopes that I'll learn some ways to cook them that we enjoy.

I'd still love to see some of my readers take part in this challenge. If you have decided to take part, I invite you to mention the ingredients you plan to challenge yourself or your family to in a comment below. Or, leave a link to your blog post. :)
