Places I want to try....

With my time coming near the end in Portland, there are still so many places I really want to get out there and try! I will find the time to visit these places!

2. Whiffies Fried Pies Food Truck
3. Giuseppe's Italian Restaurant
4. Nostrana
5. Bijou Cafe
6. Salt & Straw
7. Pok Pok
8. Veritable Quandary 
9. Pine State Biscuits
10. Screen Door

Oh, Chickpeas

Today was the last day of my Food Ethics class & we got to have lunch in our school's (OCI) dining room.

My salad I had today was just delicious! It was a baby Kale salad with Chorizo, pickled red onions, Parmesan, fried chickpeas in a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette! 

Oh it was so good! The thing that took it over the top was the fried chickpeas! I loved them! I told everyone at my table that I was stealing that idea for a lot of different things! 

Perfect in green salads & assorted cold salads. In pasta dishes, even just on a salted buttered piece of baguette toast!

Just think everyone of the possibilities! Think beyond Hummus & Falafels (even though they both are amazing) If you love chickpeas as much as I do you will love them fried!
