For me, chickpeas are okay, but roast them and they are awesome. Here is the recipe from www.beingveganeats.com :
1 15.5 oz. can of Chickpeas
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
olive oil, for coating chickpeas
salt/pepper to taste
hot sauce or other spices (curry) optional
Cook at 400 degrees for 40 - 50 minutes.
I used seasoning salt and used bacon infused olive oil given to us by our friends, the Clarkes. (If interested in purchasing your own you can see if there is an Oliv Tasting Room near you HERE or just order online HERE.) The chickpeas were amazing done like this. We ate most of them last night, but I saved a few to try with a salad.
Happy 4th birthday, Boone! Check out his birthday photo HERE and the outtakes below.
Unlike Calder, whose locks were almost too long to fit in his birthday picture, Boone loves a hair cut. We can't even mention one unless it is a for sure or he cries. He got one just in time for pictures!
Boone loves to play with other kids and there is never a concern of boredom at the rink as he will buddy up with anyone he sees. . . Whether he knows them or not! Boone is outgoing and needs to be reminded to stay with us in public places. I lost him 3 separate times when we were in Regina at Calder's tourney. Not really pumped to share that, but he is so quick and completely confident in crowded, strange places.
Boone is playful and loves a laugh. And if need be will use any sort of inappropriate potty talk to get one. Boone gets along well with other kids of all ages. He is a hit in Calder's dressing room. A large group of Calder's teammates will shout his name when he walks in a…
After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…
Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!
Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth! It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…
