Chick Peas With My Chickadee


Olivia and I worked in the kitchen this weekend roasting up some chick peas for her tasting exercise at school today.  She loved being hands-on and following the steps.  However, the old "have your kids help in the kitchen and they will try more foods" theory was not working.  Liv wouldn't even try our finished products (and tells me she doesn't try the tasting exercise offering most days at school either).  She is stubborn!

We asked for recipe recommendations last week and received a lot of great suggestions!  We made two recipes - honey cinnamon roasted chick peas

and Nora's super simple recipe for roasted chick peas (1 can, 1 T olive oil, 1 t salt & 2 T brown sugar - 12 min @ 425 degrees).

They are both big hits in this house and while Olivia would not taste-test them, the rest of us had a hard time leaving them alone so they could make it to school on Monday.  So yummy!

Wow she looks old in that pic.

Even though she is too stubborn to try the peas, she definitely liked making them with you! Still a worthwhile activity. And if she doesn't eat any, it means more for others!

I think I need to try these! Is one recipe better than the other?

I adore the picture of Liv - can't believe how old she looks!
