And just like that, the weekend is GONE!
Isn't weird that the older we get, the faster the weekend seems to fly by? Except in college when the weekend got actually longer. The three day weekend is probably the thing I miss the most about college. While the work seemed to go on forever, I could pretty much run my errands all on Fridays and be able to enjoy the weekend without worrying about other responsibilities. I was actually one of those people who found grocery shopping enjoyable. i mean don't get me wrong I still do, especially when Trader Joe's/cookie butter samples are involved. But there was something calming about shopping in the 72nd St. Trader Joe's when the line did not wrap around the store all the way to the milk aisle and being basically the only person in the store, which allowed me to peruse the chocolate covered things section as long as I wanted.
New Yorkers, you know what I'm talking about. Everyone else, ignore the last sentence to avoid panic.
As an aside, can we also talk about how many things Trader Joe's has figured out to cover in chocolate. I say this because this weekend, someone introduced me to the chocolate covered edamame. Now you might be thinking like I was thinking *what sort of witchcraft is this? has the all mighty trader lost his mind.* But guys, these were actually delicious, especially if you love salty sweet things like me. Ugh now I have another thing from trader joe's I can buy because I like it.. Like salt and turbinado sugar almonds.
If you can consume a whole box in one sitting, is that a problem? Absolutely not.
Anyways, this recipe is the perfect thing to make on a Monday, when you're still feeling that weekend hangover and you want to just cuddle in your long johns with a big mug of tea. Cause that to me would be the perfect weekend. I'm almost embarrassed to post this recipe. This kind of thing is one of my favorite things to make when I'm too tired to actually conceptualize some sort of meal. It is stupid easy and so easy to change it up depending on what you have. Change out the vegetables, change out the seasonings, change out the toppings. Just don't forget the chickpea flour... that is kind of important here. Plus, chickpea flour is having SUCH an it moment, so how could you forget it? I had been using chickpea flour for a while, but with all of the recipes popping up on the internets lately, I am ready to give chickpea flour quite the makeover!
