Chickpea Pockets

Chickpea Pockets

Today was a day of soccer in the front yard (adults vs. kids). I’ll have you know that we totally lost. The kids creamed us and we had to declare that they were better than us and that they could kick the ball much harder than us. It was also a day of cooking. I have been on a mission (in my head) to come up with a dish that not only would knock the socks off of family, but that my son would eat as well. I’ve realized that pockets are my friend! I’m thinking that everything I make is going to have to go into a pocket to get him to eat it. I’m fine with that! Pockets it is! This was so good paired with the Avocado & Cranberry Crusty Bread. I mean, lets mix this holiday up! Let me know what you think! And I hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving! How do you spend it?
