I'm firing up the bread machine to make a batch of pita bread. We have a 4-day weekend here. That means, we are on the lowest TOU rate for electricity. Thanks to the Liberal government, I now think of weekends and holidays as opportunities to use the oven, etc. at TOU lowest rates.

Oh, yes, the s.p. chips. Actually, I don't put anything on them - just dry them out au naturel. I like them a lot that way when they're nice and crisp. Oh, heck. I like them even when they're leathery little chews.

While the oven was hot I baked a canfull of the Wolfe Pit roasted chickpeas - found the recipe here on DC a couple of days ago or so. Now those have seasonings, lots of powdered stuff - onion, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, mustard, s&p w/EVOO to make them stick. I think that's all. Haven't tried them yet, but they smelled great in the oven.
Thanks for reminding me to soak the chick peas. I also want to try that recipe.

This morning I prepared 3 trays of lasagne to put in the freezer, then I prepared a light lunch for my husband and I....belgian endives wrapped in thin prosciutto and topped with béchamel sauce and parmesan. Before I put the sauce on top I went to put the lasagne in the freezer . When I came back into the kitchen, my daughters little dog ( a min pin ) had climbed up on the table and helped herself to one of the rolls. Needless to say she didn't get anything else to eat.

That sounds wonderful!

I am thinking the same process could be used with a variety of green vegetables and some sliced ham from the local Deli!.

Thanks for the idea!
