Tell me all your thoughts on God

As you can tell by now, if I'm not posting that means I'm not doing much.

The last day I worked out was Friday (3o min. HIIT). And I think the last healthy meal I had was Friday night, also. It's been a lazy food filled 3 days.

But I'm over it and moving on.

Plus, the boyfriend says I can't play with the Cricut tonight if I don't workout. And I'm almost done with a project, so I HAVE to get my workout on tonight.

There is no meat allowed in our house on Fridays. I sneak my meat in at work...tee hee. So last Friday I tried out some vegetarian recipes.

You can find the Black Bean Burger recipe here. Seriously, this stuff is good.

And do you want to meet my new boyfriend? You see that salad in the pic. Yup, that's him. You can find that recipe here. That chickpea salad is AWESOME.

Which brings me to a question that I have: how in the heck do you prepare chickpeas? I know you open the can and rinse them out, but are you supposed to peel them before tossing them in the salad or leave the peels on and eat 'em? I peeled the entire can of chickpeas before making the salad and it was very time consuming. So, it really makes me wonder if I'm doing it right.

Sorry for the denseness, guys.


  1. i dont peel them but i dont know if you are supposed to or not
    i dont think your dense
    its a good question

  2. I think I would go insane if I had to peel every chickpea! I just rinse them in a sieve and pick out the skins that have come off and risen to the top of the pile!

  3. I didn't even know you could peel chickpeas. So my answer is no, I don't peel them. Holy patience peeling them all for that salad!!

  4. No peelig here, just rinse & go.
    I cannot imagine how long that took....what perseverance!

    Thanks for the recipes. I love black bean burgers & always say I'm going to make my own but somehow boxes of them end up in my freezer. Darned sales suck me in. ;)

    Have a great week!

  5. I've never eaten a chickpea that I'm aware of!!!
