I had a can of chickpeas sitting on my pantry shelf. What possessed me to buy that!! I don't know how to fix it. Do I just open, heat and eat? And, then I ran across a recipe that solved my problem. Thank goodness for all the wonderful sites that feature recipes online!!
So, just in case you have a can of chickpeas and don't know what to do with them. Try this.
CHICKPEA & TOMATO SALAD
1 can chickpeas, drained & rinsed 1 pint of cherry tomatoes, halved
25 basil leaves, chopped 3 cloves garlic
1 T. red wine vinegar 2 tsp. olive oil
1 T. apple cinder vinegar 1/2 T. honey
Toss all ingredients and chill at least 20 minutes.
I boiled me an ear of corn and fixed tilapia fingers with tartar sauce to go with mine.
Now, that you've had your lunch lets take a walk in my yard.
Most flowers are gone but I found a couple of goodies still blooming.
This very small azalea was almost hidden nestled down in a bed of straw and ivy. Perhaps the warmth of the straw made it think it was spring! Who knows, but I've been enjoying it for days and days.
Smile, little flower, you are on Candid Camera!
And, my mum is as beautiful as ever.
Now, I will share with you what I was doing in the yard in the first place. I saw this pin on Pinterest!!
So I took some apples from the kitchen,
grabbed up my leaf rake
and my camera.
These are my ideas from that pin.
It just didn't get it, did it?
Too dull, too uninteresting.
So, I gather up my props and head for the fence.
but I do wish I had scattered the apples out a bit!
And, I wish those bricks weren't there
So, on to the next spot!
