Salsa Lovin’

June 23, 2010

Hi friends! How’s your Wednesday going so far?  I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop in terms of the “Bad things come in threes” theory, but so far, it’s been a pretty eventless day.

I spent the morning doing some work for my online classes and writing, and then I hit up Target.  I was looking for furniture—we’ve arranged our living room after the paint job, and are in need of a new end table—but ended up finding a lot of clothing instead.  Funny how that happens.  Target is like a black hole for my credit card.

When I came home, I was ready for lunch:

Salsa chickpeas + carrots + crackers:

Yum!  To make the salsa chickpeas, I just mix half a cup of chickpeas with about half a cup of salsa and 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt.  So simple, but so tasty!

Not sure what’s on the agenda for the rest of the day.  I have a little more work to do.  There was talk of going to a baseball game, but apparently we’re supposed to have some major thunder storms rolling in this evening.  We shall see!

To quote one of my favorite characters from one of my favorite movies, “Check ya later!”

      Haha, true! “That’s why I love those high school girls…I keep gettin’ older…they stay the same age.” 🙂

    I hope that show doesn’t drop. Bad things do seem to come in 3’s, however. :-/

    Target and I have to distance ourselves. I can’t get outta the joint without at least $200 spent! It’s seriously BAD!

    Oooh I think I would really love that salsa chickpea combo!

  8. June 23, 2010 9:32 pm

    ooh that chickpea dish looks fabulous.
    P.S. Dazed and Confused is on my top five favorite movies list. I have seen it so many times!!

    I love that movie. I should put off Target until I actually have a career. I spend way too much there.

    I have that same problem at Target. I’ve discovered that they have some super cute earrings – bad discovery!

    Love the salsa chickpea idea!!! Very creative, and it sounds delicious!

    and tj’s.

    the chickpeas/salsa combo looks delicious…can’t go wrong with either of those things in a dip!

    target. last time i went in i spent almost 200 bucks. and the only thing i needed was tupperware containers. at least i can kind of pretend that it it was all household cleaning products and not sports bras and trail mixes when my dad looks at the “family expenses only” credit card bill…

    hope that third thing never comes for you!

    Yum, salsa chickpeas sound wonderful. I’d scoop them up like a dip. 🙂 I’d probably add extra fresh jalapeno on top. hehe

    I am pretty sure it is impossible to leave Target without spending a ridiculous amount of money. It’s a black hole. I try to go there as little as possible, but when I am away for too long, it starts calling my name. I swear.
