Happy Monday friend-os! Sorry I haven't done one of these in awhile - I was on vacation, then it was Labor Day weekend, then I was busy...yada yada yada. Excuses, I know.
Anyhow, I love Real Simple. If I could pick one magazine that I wish my life looked like, it would be Real Simple. Good food, nice clothes, clean houses... sounds just about perfect. Doesn't just looking at the cover give you a zen-like feeling?
One of my favorite recent recipes comes from Real Simple. And it's just that - really, really simple and really, REALLY delicious.
Grilled Spiced Chicken with Chickpeas
This recipe was fantastic because most things I already had on hand (except parsley, which I omitted anyway because it's not my fave) and it literally took 10 minutes to prep and 20 to cook on the grill. I prepped the chickpeas and the chicken while Baby C slept and still had time to do laundry, er, catch up on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians". For shame, I know. Another change I made was adding feta cheese to the chickpea salad and putting it on some mixed greens - gotta get the veggies in, right? Plus, this is a healthy, cheap meal (all in all, it comes to about $3 a serving).
