A Yogi and Her Guacamole: Guest Post with Sam

Guacamole

Thanks to Sam, I am no longer indifferent to guacamole.  In fact, I can now say I love it. To be more specific, I love Sam’s recipe. I never realized (never really thought about it either) how personal guacamole is. I want LOTS of fresh cilantro, but know you either love or hate cilantro; there’s no middle ground. At least that’s been my experience and if certain friends are coming over and there’s cilantro involved, I have to stop and think, “hmmmm are they lovers or haters”? It’s not worth losing friends over, but I admit to feeling a bit sorry for them. Salsa without cilantro? A Banh mi sandwich? A wrap without stems and leaves just snipped from the garden? Perish the thought.

Sort of Back in the Groove with Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

Hammock View 1

I needed this hammock today. Notice Max getting in the groove too and rolling around on his back. I’m finally posting after too long and I thought what better way to kick off my re-entry into blogland than with a spicy snack. I’m also paying tribute to two friends (and one of the members of one of my all time favorite musical groups the Beastie Boys) who recently passed away. Two in a month is two too many, but they would love this:  kicking back with a snack and a glass of wine and listening to the Beastie Boys.
