In our ongoing search for easy, delicious, healthy foods, we came across this chickpea salad at Whole Foods, and we are in love. Something about the flavor combination just works so well. …and then Son came up with the idea of adding potato chips to it (the black pepper and sea salt flavor is the best) and it became dangerously delicious. And not quite as healthy. But it’s all good, because it’s tasty!
Also, I’ve been experimenting with curries lately. Current recipe: saute some zucchini, add it to a couple of cans of coconut milk, a few tablespoons of green curry paste, a bag of frozen chickpeas, and a couple of bags of frozen spinach. Simmer until warmed through. Serve with basil, fish sauce, and sliced seitan, over rice. Satisfying, and oh so delicious (and SPICY)!
On a walk, we came across the most interesting butterfly. We get monarchs all the time in LA, but I’ve never seen a butterfly that looks like this!
Naturally, I had to celebrate National Lemonade Day, especially since I had managed to go all summer without any lemonade whatsoever. (I know!) This mix of strawberry and mango lemonades hit the spot (and I promise Son wasn’t as grumpy about it as he looks in the photo!)
