Chickpeas and Ice Cream

Despite my healthy serving of hummus at lunch, I was still craving chickpeas for dinner. I decided to roast up a can of them with broccoli, onions and spices.

Roasted chickpeas + broccoli = an amazing combo choccoli (or brocpeas?)

I know I desperately need a manicure, but I couldn’t help but snap a pic of the way I ate these – with my man hands.

Ben and I took a walk after dinner. Then, he did squats while watching The Soup. Is that weird? Maybe a little, especially because Paula Deen was on the screen.

Two of my favorite foods in the same night – chickpeas and fro-yo! I hope I’m not going to die soon (I always think that when things get too good. Is that weird?).

Except my fro-yo was a smoothie in a bowl with tons of granola. smoothie in a bowl

You know that game 2 Truths and a Lie? Let’s play it with my comments – here are 2 real comments I’ve received and one “fake”. Guess which is the fake –

1. Just wanted to let you know I just found your blog by googling “Why does roasted broccoli smell like garbage?”

2. Had anyone ever told you you look like a polar bear?

3. I had a dream last night that we went wedding dress shopping together and you picked a lime green one!

If nothing else, now you’ll think of me as a polar bear in a lime green wedding dress eating garbage?

    I’m going to guess the 1st one.

    I noticed you eat chickpeas a lot. I don’t think I’ve ever had them in pea form (that sounds weird) but looove hummus. I’m interested in trying them. Do you have a suggestion about the best way to cook them??

    What a great idea to satisfy a fro-yo craving! When I first moved to SoCal I ate Yogurtland and Cherry on Top at least 3 times a week. It’s just so. wonderful.
    My guess is the first one!

    That picture of Ben is awesome in ways I can’t possibly express in words. Really. I don’t know why, but it is.

    Also: I think #2 is the fake comment.
