Back then I used to get massive cans of chickpeas from Costco. But, since moving back to California I cannot find cans big enough to satisfy my chickpea appetite. I kinda haven’t been bothering with them since I practically eat a whole can in one sitting. And by “practically” I mean totally. Here’s a link to one of my fave salad/chickpea recipes – Asian Slaw.
This weekend I saw an eight can pack of chickpeas at Costco and decided this might be worth my while. I also got a package of brussel sprouts. I felt like I was reunited with an old friend, but instead of reminiscing about old times, I ate them.
Roasted chickpeas and brussel sprouts are one of my top 5 favorite dinners ever. I made some hummustard to mix in too.
I just threw everything in a roasting pan sprayed with non-stick, topped it with S&P. garlic and Old Bay. Roasted at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. Then, mix with hummustard. *I think HEAB is the original inventor of hummustard and deserves credit for changing the way I eat condiments.
But it’s not all happy times over at RER. Today after I blogged about my lunch, I went to eat my yogurt and it was BAD. I was definitely not happy about this and bitched about it on twitter. Until I remembered something I like to tell myself when little things go wrong…
Since my yogurt was spoiled I needed an extra something in my lunch. I stopped by Juice It Up on the way to school and got a shot of wheatgrass (my new obsession) and a small smoothie. Sorry Juice It Up, you’re no Jamba Juice. True.
I ended up eating my AB&J with lunch and dug this bar out of my backpack for a snack. I love this flavor because it tastes like a cookie, but it really did nothing for my hunger and I grabbed a handful of pretzels from the groceries on the way home.
Ben and I both had pretty hectic days today and are very ready to call it a night.
I’ll see ya in the morning
