|I should be a food blogger, I know.|
I took them out on time, and then proceeded to eat a bunch of them because they were delicious. I should mention that I really did not get along with this roommate ... thus mitigating any guilt I should have been feeling at stealing a bunch of her chickpeas.

It was a rough semester for us as roommates. I was engaged (i.e. oblivious to everyone around me), and she wasn't having a great semester for reasons I never fully understood because I was lame and never took the time to get to know her. So we clashed a few times, and we did not part as friends. This really bothered me, so a while ago I wrote her a message apologizing for being such a lame roomie. I had no idea how or if she would respond, so imagine my delight when she did reply, and she was very nice and even told me my kids were cute. I am so happy I emailed her. I feel so much better about it all. Except today when I was making roasted chickpeas, I remembered how I'd stolen a bunch from her ... so Roomie, if you read this one day, know that I feel bad for taking them, but also grateful that you inadvertently introduced me to the deliciousness that is a roasted chickpea.
*1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans (both names sound lovely, so pick your favorite)
*1-2 T olive oil
*spices/seasoning (I used Penzey's "Mural of Flavor" spice mix--delish. You can use ANY spices you want--garlic powder, cayenne, black pepper, BBQ seasoning, etc. Someone make a cinnamon sugar batch and tell me how they are ...)

Reconciliation tastes so good.
|Graham loves chickpeas. I love hearing Graham say "chickpeas."|
Who do you need to reconcile with? Tell me, then go write them an apology email ... or else send them a can of garbanzo beans with a nice note and this recipe.
