I cooked some basmati rice and put the chorirzo over it...yum!! I also cooked some fried zucchini and silver queen corn on the cob. Everything was great except for the asparagus. Oh well, I'm sure I'll have more recipes that I won't care for. You never know until you try them though, right?
Saturday, I made a chickpea Salad. When I was in NJ, Jenn bought a carton of chickpea salad, from the local deli, that was out of this world. I knew I had to find a recipe for it when I got home. I found a recipe that sounded really close to what she had bought, but I did make some changes to it. Here's what I ended up with, and to me, it tasted really close to what I had in NJ.
1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 small onion finely chopped (I’m not a big fan of red onions, so I used yellow)
1/4 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
1 celery rib chopped
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste.
Combine chickpeas with onions, peppers, celery, garlic powder, and rosemary in a medium bowl. Stir in the vinegar, oil, salt and pepper.
I mainly fixed the chickpea salad so I could have something different to take for lunch this week. So today, I had a chickpea salad wrap with some added spinach. I am beginning to really love veggie wraps of all kinds. As you see, I left some saran wrap on the bottom half of my wrap...that's because my wraps always fall apart for some strange reason. I also had some falafel chips and cashew cheese. What a yummy lunch!
Wait...where did this partially eaten cookie come from? I must have a mouse in the kitchen.
Yep....and this would be the big mouse stealing the warm cookies.
Hope everyone has had a great Monday. :o)
