Garbanzo Veggie Pitas

Soooo, I tried out a yummy recipe today. I prepped it all to take to work for myself and a couple girlfriends. We take turns bringing lunch for the 3 of us and it's great. We get to try new foods and it's fun to both plan lunch and show up for lunch brought from someone else. Without further adieu...


Ingredients:











Put a pan on medium-high heat with two cap fulls of olive oil-your preference on virgin, extra v, whatev, this is really a choice you can make that won't have terrible effects if you pick over the other; add in almond slivers-about an eighth of a cup, add in about a half of teaspoon of minced garlic, a sprinkle of bread crumbs-Italian style of course, and 1 can (16oz) garbanzo beans. Warm even and thoroughly. Also, some smaller stems of broccoli are a last minute added item I put in. I put broc and a splash of sea salt in a bowl in the micro and let them heat up in about 3:50. Add broccoli right into garbanzo beans once cooked:










Cut/dice up the raw veggies-cherry tomatoes, red onion, celery-red or green, cucumbers, combine in bowl; sprinkle black pepper and sea salt over veggies. In separate dish squeeze half lemon, one small lime and pour roughly two splashes of red wine vinegar, whisk together. Definitely go lighter with the vinegar if you're not entirely a fan. You can add more, you can't take away.





What we will probably do is stuff the pitas with the garban's and broc first, then will add in the veggies with vinaigrette. You could also warm the pita bread and tear to dip, or layer items on top of torn bread also. If cheese is desired, fresh mozzarella or feta would be heavenly. Goat cheese possibly as well.


Feeling pret-tay excited for work. Lunch specifically.

Yay for trying new recipes,
Meggie

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.

Simple blessings

I’m lying in bed, next to a snoring husband and my baby girl dogter sprawled out cozy as can be, while the rain falls down upon our roof. Gone are the days of spending a Saturday night downtown at a club, throwing beers back in a honky think, or galavanting around to anywhere with the lights on.

And I’m not mad about it. Not even a little bit. There is tilt no place I’d rather be than with hunter, Roni and our comfy sweet little home happily netflixing and writing this here post. It’s a good feeling indeed.

I count my blessings extra on nights like this and say a few additional prayers for love and comfort to continue on. I truly don’t ask for more than health, happiness, and love. Anything else is gravy.

To simple blessings for all.
