Jason is out of town this week…
Don’t worry, Moms, by the time this is published he will be on his way to getting on the jet back home!
In fact, he told me today he was bumped to the earlier jet… no beer service on the earlier jet; but I told him if he gets home 1.5 hours earlier than planned, on our anniversary, I’ll take him out for a beer! 🙂
We actually have a date for tonight — to go on a long walk with Basil and for me to make him dinner. My absolute favorite…
When Jason is out of town, Basil and I turn in to crazed things that cannot sleep, we miss him so much! I ask everyone I know to come spend the night.
Last night, I got to play hostess to a good friend that came to Basil’s my rescue. 🙂 So I did it up good, and hosted Taco Thursday at our place (we may have dipped in the pool…). 🙂
We started the weekend our evening with a vodka lime martini.
After cooling off in the pool, it was time for dinner.
adapted from and inspired by Lindsay’s recipe
15 ounces chickpeas, rinsed and peeled
3 tablespoons hummus
1/2 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons Garlic Gold
chili powder, sprinkled
Combine chickpeas, hummus, lime juice and garlic. Spread on baking sheet and sprinkle with chili powder. Bake @ 375 for 20 minutes, or until your kitchen smells so delicious the neighbors come knocking.
This happened. If you know us… you’re laughing right now. 😉
I made this using my hummus.
To build the tacos, we had guacamole, lettuce and tomatoes.
My Guacamole = mashed avocado + lemon.
Chickpeas! Who knew? These are some of the most delicious tacos I’ve ever eaten! SO tasty good!
Mango Sorbet and Apple Pie Ice Creme:
See Jase? I totally skim, vacuum, and cover the pool while you are gone…
