Good morning! I hope your Thursday is off to a great start!
There has been a whole lot of baking and crocheting and cooking going on around here. Banana muffins with cream cheese for breakfast.
Lemony Chickpea Stew for lunch. This is the first time I tried this recipe. I seem to have a thing for chickpeas and spinach at the moment.
Saute 4 cloves of garlic in olive oil. Add one can of chickpeas, one can of diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup of vege broth and one small box of frozen spinach. Season with pepper, a dash of red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, zest and juice of 1/2 a large lemon. Cook til spinach is heated through. Serve over brown rice.
I get lots of comments about the fact that I cook and bake in the heat we have around here. The thing is, we live with air conditioning at least 10 months out of the year so I would have to convert to a raw food diet if I didn't cook or bake.
There is something so comforting about a homecooked meal. I make soup year round, even on a hot day.
It is currently a whopping 113 degrees out there and our low tonight will be 91. These guys continue to stop by for refreshment.
And a bite to eat. Whatever is in there, they like it!
Have a terrific day! Friendship blessings, Tammy
