Hair Appointment & Chickpeas
I spent a few hours at the hair salon today getting my color touched up.
Before hair (picture from this post two days ago)
While I was at the salon I picked up my favorite shampoo and conditioner that I’ve raved about before.
It’s called Unite and it’s sulfate-free as well as all of these things:
I also picked up my favorite Leave-In/Detangler called It’s a 10
All that time in the salon made me hungry for some Cinnamon Sugar Chickpea “Peanuts” with Peanut Flour (If you don’t have peanut flour, so sorry. You could try coconut flour, almond flour, or skipping flour and make this alternate but similar recipe)
And for dinner, I re-made my Mango Balsamic Rice with Garbanzos & Mixed Vegetables recipe
And it makes planned leftovers. Cook once, eat twice.
From my last post about Cooking or Making Things at Home vs. Buying Pre-Made, it was interesting to hear what you find easier to make at home and what items, for the time/energy/expense involved that you feel you’re time and money ahead to just buy pre-made.
Different strokes for different folks and I always find it interesting to read what one person finds too labor-intensive, another person would gladly make at home to save a little cash. And likely get a better-tasting, “healthier”, finished product.
And thanks for not thinking the lettuce-chopping tutorial was too silly. And a few of you had some keep your lettuce crispy and last longer tips, too. Thanks.
Dessert: No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Balls (with high protein option)
1. What’s on your agenda for the weekend?
I am working, possibly getting together with a friend, and hopefully spending time with Skylar, getting some good workouts in, and some quality kitchen time in, too. I hope. I haven’t had much kitchen time this week.
I do all the time!
I’ve posted about it before, but in a nutshell, I am just too impatient to sit there for a blowout so I don’t. I have things to do! Like blog. And be a mommy. And go to work.
Not to mention, after a long appointment, the last thing I want to do is sit there any longer! I can dry and flat iron my own hair in a fraction of the time it takes at the salon. Maybe not with as good of results, but whatever.
3. Do you like Chickpeas? Or do you call them garbanzo beans?
Yes, I do. But I do have to watch my consumption of them because too many beans and me just do not get along.
And I usually call them chickpeas but sometimes call them garbanzo beans.
