Chickpea Lovers Club

Today was the first official meeting of the Chickpea Lovers Club. Right now we just have two members – Rose and me icon smile Chickpea Lovers Club

So, Rose and I got together to talk about chickpeas, hummus, garbanzo beans, etc. It was great.

Okay, the truth is Rose and I got together for dinner tonight. I contacted her the longest time ago with questions about MD and she was always so helpful Now that I’m in the area it was time we meet in person. I was very excited since I love her blog and she seems super cool and down to earth. I was correct – she is super cool!

We walked to dinner at Tomato Palace. This place is great because it is overlooking a lake and the view is very peaceful and beautiful. We sat outside…dscn0497 Chickpea Lovers Club

The meal started with the best rolls – topped with butta and cheese. I may have had two. dscn0489 Chickpea Lovers Club

I ordered the Blackened Shrimp Salad. It had mixed greens, goat cheese, huge chunks of candied walnuts, blueberries, raspberries and shrimp. The combination of salad toppings made this delicious! dscn0493 Chickpea Lovers Clubdscn0492 Chickpea Lovers Club

    Are those Special K crackers? I just tried them the other day and they were fantastic! I could have easily eaten the whole box! Oh, and your salad looked delicious!

    I was also going to ask if those are Special K crackers. I love how you can eat like 17 of them in a serving! They are addicting though and I can easily polish off a box in a matter of a day or 2

    OMG you had me at goat cheese. Anything with shrimp and goat cheese is right up my alley. That salad looks amazing!

    Sounds like such a fun night!

    Um, excuse me. I have apparently been ousted, without ever applying for membership. Could you have included the girl who like lives right down the street? Yep. I get the hint.
