Hey there summer. Why you moving so fast?
How are we already in August, and a short month left until school, fall, and the holidays!?
Honestly, it’s a little frightening, and I’m not sure how much I like being an “adult” and telling younger people, “It goes by so fast”, but now I get it! I get why my parents and grandparents always said that to me, and still do. BECAUSE IT DOES!
Sorry, I’m just having a mini meltdown with all the change that’s going on around here. My youngest baby is starting preschool, we don’t need my nanny as much (if at all), someone who’s been with our family almost every day for over 2 years, and I’m already having to think about planning recipes for the holidays! PLEASE TIME, SLOW DOWN!!!!!!!
Ok. I’m done crying now. Let’s talk about this Roasted Beet, Peach, & Crispy Chickpea Salad
It’s everything I love about summer. Well, not everything. But a lot of things. Especially peaches. PEACHES! Peaches make me smile, and they’re SO good in this simple salad with roasted beets and crunchy chickpeas.
My obsession of the week is roasting chickpeas. Have you done it? You need to. It’s as simple as tossing some canned garbanzo beans with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and spices and popping them in the oven until crisp. They’re everything on this salad.
So before summer officially comes to an end, grab your ripest peach and savor every last moment.
It goes so fast.
