What's cooking? Monday October 11th

Since nobody started a thread yet I thought I'd have a go.

Today I'm going to be making baked chickpeas. And later on chicken sausages with mash and some Bisto granulated gravy granules that I was able to pick up yesterday. That gravy goes so well with mash.

I had lunch with dh, daughter and grandaughter, so I will probably have the quesadilla that I couldn't eat and dh will probably have a sandwich.

So, the chickpeas are in the oven now, baking with paprika, ground ginger and lemon pepper with olive oil. I'll let you know how they turn out.

The baked chickpeas were delicious. I have a feeling I'll be making them often!

Well, in our house it will either be Thanksgiving leftovers or mini ravioli with rose sauce and a spinach salad.

I used premade Empanada pastry. Here it is in the stores. But it was like pre made pie dough. I did use fresh local seafood, I think they were better than what they serve at the local restaurants but I am guessing they make them in batches and frezze them.
