I've been having fun in the kitchen lately. Have ya noticed? So I've been trying some recipes...I had some chickpeas in the pantry and decided to try something weird and new.
I roasted them up without any spices and then made puppy chow with them. Of course, I used Bubba as my normal test subject and he loved them....so did his friends!
