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

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!


Til we meet again,

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
