Roasted Garbanzo Beans

One of my girls favorite healthy snacks are roasted garbanzo beans. We make these just about every week.  We start with two cans of garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed.

We dump those into a zip lock bag to which we add 1/4 cup of olive oil, Natures Seasoning, and a dash of ground red pepper, to mix. 

Pour those onto a foil lined sheet pan and pop into a 350 degree oven. Bake for about 10 minutes, shaking every now and then to turn the beans. Keep checking every 10 minutes, and bake until golden . Sprinkle with grated Parmesan, and enjoy!


How has your week been? Hope it's yummy!

Hanging Around

Spring has sprung early here in Michigan. The grass is green, the tree's are budding and the cleaning bug has bitten! Every spring we go through our closets, donating what hasn't been worn, what we've outgrown {shame} or bad fashion choices. Over the winter i picked up these beautiful wooden hangers with the fleur de lis painted on them.
I got fourteen hangers, some are black and some are gold, for $7.00. Love me a great deal ; )

They take up a bit more space then your traditional hanger, but i love how they look!

I organized my shoes, storing some of the dressier numbers that i don't wear that often, into boxes {cute box, right? Thank you, HomeGoods} I took pictures with my Instax mini camera, to label the boxes, that way i don't forget whats in there. Because i will.

Shoes shelved by style, and heel height

Purses stuffed with tissue, then bagged or boxed.

Baubles hung on a towel rack helps keep them untangled and visible. Because, yes, if i don't see it, i forget about it. I must have short term accessory memory loss...yea, that's it! ...maybe that explains the piles of stuff hiding in my craft room...

Has the cleaning bug bitten you? I'm tackling my family room next- stay tuned!
