Roasted Spiced Chickpeas
Cabin fever has set in! We've been under extreme cold warnings for the past two weeks. Last year the phrase "Polar Vortex" was all the rage; this year "Siberian Air Mass" is making waves. Either way, it is cold up in here!
Here's how we have been enjoying indoor fun this week:
Yesterday I visited with a dear friend from high school and her little boy. It was wonderful seeing old friends and making new ones. Dylan had a blast (minus the hair pulling and poking... my guy was the naughty one)!
As Dylan turns one in a week, we had a pj + picnic + party hat kind of morning.
Fun fact- Today is one year since my official due date (February 26, 2014) so I thought I'd share this #throwbackthursday photo. I miss my bump and "glorious" preggo hair, but I love being skinny again and kissing my sweet boy's cheeks more lol!
Anyways I digress. This afternoon I craved something both nutritious and spicy to snack on. I whipped up some oven-roasted chickpeas and thought I'd share my recipe with you. Enjoy!
