I didn’t get the phone call I wanted to get yesterday. I’ll clarify to say I didn’t get a phone call at all yesterday 😦
Unfortunately in my mind I built up Friday to be “THE DAY” so when it ended up not being the day I was pretty upset. I’d built up so much anxiety and emotion that when I didn’t get the call I allowed doubt to overwhelm my mind but I made myself go for a walk.
During the walk I gave myself a pep talk. I had to rationalize with myself. I didn’t not get the job, I’m just still waiting.
I let myself have a lazy day today. I slept in. I ate a huge breakfast. I laid on the couch watching “Freaky Eaters” for hours (It’s a weird show about people who eat weird things, like the guy who only ate french fries). I played games on my phone. I basically did nothing.
The one thing I did accomplish was making one of my new favorite snacks and I like “Saturday Snacks” so it might become a regular thing.
Last week in Meal Plan Monday I mentioned making roasted chickpeas. I made them again today and actually remembered to take pictures before I devoured them all. If you’ve looked at my meal plans you know I like simple. If a recipe has too many ingredients or steps I tend to pass it by unless I’m feeling super ambitious….this doesn’t happen very often. I see “Prep time: 1 Hour” and I’m scrolling to the next recipe.
Thankfully this delicious snack is super easy and only has 3 ingredients.
- Olive oil
- Can of Garbonza beans (Chickpeas)
Heat oven to 400° F
Drain beans, rinse, and pat dry. I pat them with paper towels or you can let them air dry a bit
Put the beans in a bowl, toss with olive oil, add in seasonings of your choice. I used chilli powder, salt, cumin, and a little pepper but there’s tons of recipes out there or you can just get creative. Toss with the seasonings so they’re all coated.
Put on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake until crisp, about 30-40 minutes.
Voila! Instant snack! I could see making this for a get-together or taking it with me for a road trip snack or on the trail. I tend to go for savory snacks rather than sweet (except for the occasional cookie) so this is a healthier alternative than grabbing a bag of potato chips. I will warn you, they’re super addictive and it’s easy to munch away the whole batch but I had to remind myself about moderation. Too much can quickly turn a healthy snack into an overindulgence so I put the lid on the bowl and set them aside.
That’s what I got for today. I think I’m headed back to the couch to see if I can find a good movie to watch or more likely spend an hour trying to pick a movie before giving up and just going back to watching “Lost”
Hope everyone is having a great weekend! 😀
