Roasted Chickpea Snack

I love snacks. I do. Then again, I think most people enjoy something to nosh on now and then. For me, I prefer to have a somewhat healthy type of snack in my house. White Cheddar Puffs by Sage Valley, while they are not as bad as say those orangy doodles, they are just as addicting and you will eat a whole bag so hence that is the "unhealthy" slant to them. LOL Seriously though, they are absolutely yummy and you cannot hold me responsible for going out and buying them at Shop Rite when on sale.

One of my favorite snacks to make are roasted chickpeas. I usually use chickpeas I have soaked overnight, but you can use a can. I would recommend using two cans because they are delicious and you will not stop eating just a few. I had to put my freshly made batch in some Tupperware so that my husband gets to have some. It pained me as I could have easily sat there and grazed on them all day. Or in half an hour. ;-) The recipe I used came from and is called Simple Roasted Chickpea Snack. You can vary the spices to your taste, but I am warning you, they are quite tasty and a great staple for when you have friends over or for a cocktail party or even just for yourself. Enjoy!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

The No Name Post

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.
The Roasted Heirloom Cauliflower and Chestnut Soup from Roost looks so comforting and delicious.
My obsession with cowl patterns from Purl Soho continues. The Garter Gaiter is divine.
I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.
Toques From Underground and excellent and fascinating article about underground supperclubs in The New Yorker.

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…
