Chickpea Lovers Club

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

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

The meal started with the best rolls – topped with butta and cheese. I may have had two. DSCN0489

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! DSCN0493DSCN0492

Now I am blogging and eating dessert – cherries and a little piece of dark chocolate :)DSCN0509

Earlier today I ate lunch. Nothing exciting – AB&J, watermelon, carrots.DSCN0482

I did try a new snack today – crackers and a piece of cheese. It kept me pretty full for a couple of hours.DSCN0486

Rose and I wanted to capture the first meeting the Chickpea Lovers Club with a photo, but we didn’t want to look like we were trying. So here is us not trying:DSCN0504

I think we need to try, so we did.DSCN0506

Thanks for hanging out Rose! I will put together the agenda for our next meeting :) Chickpea lovers unite!

    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.
