As Promised

We are nearing the end of a wonderful weekend. Having my parents here was great. (They must have tired Peachy out as she went down for a nap an hour and a half ago and is still sleeping. Is she in bed for the night? Should we wake her up to put her back to bed? Will she wake up in the middle of the night and think that it is morning? I guess we'll see.) We are thoroughly enjoying the Olympics. I don't plan on getting much done for the next few weeks other than enjoying the games.
I have been working on a little project in connection with my crafts. I am not quite ready to unveil it just yet, but I am really excited about it. I will make sure to let you know when I am ready.
Tonight I put the finishing touches on Peachy's Valentine's for her playgroup friends tomorrow. It is fun to be able to live vicariously through her.
Peachy and I are over the stomach flu and now just battling colds. M avoided the stomach flu, but seems to have picked up our cold. Definitely the less of the two evils.
So, we were all able to enjoy the snack spread for the opening ceremonies. (Well, all except Peachy, she was already in bed by the time the festivities began.) And now through the magic of the internet, you too can enjoy the spread!!

We had dip, pretzels, chips and salsa, hummus and pitas, cheese and crackers, heart shaped brownies, and sliders. All of the yumminess was washed down with your choice of beer, wine, or water.
The final picture is of roasted chick peas. They are easy to make, yummy, and fairly good for you.
1. Rinse and pat dry chick peas.
2. Spray baking pan with cooking spray.
3. Season with garlic powder, season salt, curry powder, and chili powder.
4. Bake at 375 for 30 - 35 minutes, shaking the pan every ten minutes.
I hope that you had a good weekend as well.

So does this make the chickpeas crunchy like more like nuts or is some of the tenderness preserved? I'd love to try them!

Some of the chickpeas were crunchy and some still had some tenderness on the inside. I am not certain how they are supposed to turn out, but they were yummy this way.
