The morning is awash with chickpeas

Outside the open window
The morning air is all awash with angels.

You could paint your mornings with coffee and scrambled eggs, or crazy drivers on the motorway, or a harsh bundle of newspapers… a million ways to start the day.

Today, I started mine with a trip to the kitchen to make lunch (to bring to work) – and – chickpeas. I’ve never made anything with them, and they are still relatively new members to my palate in general. I’ve also never had a teaspoon of feta cheese and lemon juice for breakfast before, but it sure is a good idea if you need one.

Lunch will be, from Tessa Kiros’ “Falling Cloudberries”:
#32 Chickpea, Feta & Coriander Salad – Page 81

This is a shortened version of the process:
Chilli, garlic, olive oil & onion – fried.
Chickpeas, crumbled feta, parsley, (skipped the coriander), lemon juice, spring onion, salt, pepper – chopped/prepared/combined.
All of the above – mixed well.

The morning air in my kitchen is awash with a very good smell indeed… mmm…

…oops gotta go. Have a great day!
