Spanish Chickpeas and Chorizo
Appetizer? Main Dish? Yep, something like that. The thought of a lazy slow dinner or appetizer of this...with a glass of wine...sitting on the patio for hours and hours is appealing. And, maybe in some other life I can do that. However, this is a main dish at this house in the present time. It comes together quickly after a late swim practice following a day of work, which is just what we need at this point in life.
I bought the chorizo at TheFreshMarket, so it was not budget friendly; however, I only had a tiny window of grocery shopping at there were some other items on sale there that I wanted to purchase. Yikes.....their sausages are $1.99 each! I stick by my best plan for shopping there....go somewhere else before...or after...shopping there to grab the basics and save it for a few specialty items. I'm glad it's nearby (and I'm glad I only needed 2 links), but I just have to be reminded of it every so often.
Paul and I had a fun Saturday morning there after dropping Eleanor off at weight training and swim practice. We had enough time to go to the dog park, TheFreshMarket, a local farmer's market, a walk for coffee, and a tiny bit of cleaning. A glimpse of the future when she becomes a driver, I guess. Maybe I will have a leisurely dinner on the patio after all!
