The last time my friend Kelly came to visit she brought over this great snack:
Hummus and pretzel crisps. YUMMO.
Coach and I are
pigging out munching on this most weekends now.
I was convinced I did not like hummus because it is made out of chick peas.
AND I don’t like chick peas.!!
Today is your lucky day ’cause I have a chick peas (or is it chick PEA?) story for you.
I know, it has been
never forever since you heard a great chick pea story isn’t it?
Get ready. It is
exciting boring as heck.
While I was in high school I worked at a restaurant called
PondeGROSA Ponderosa. They were all over the place, so you may have gotten very sick eaten at one also. Ponderosa had a great salad bar. I ate off of it while pretending to work tended to the ‘Bar’ quite a bit.
I had to refill all the items and keep it clean. Most of our items were located in a huge walk in freezer in the back. I had to trudge all the goodies from the back of the restaurant to the ‘Bar’.
We had chick peas in a 5 gallon container. (Not to be confused with the mayo or coleslaw.)
I loathed getting the chick peas container open. I
begged pleaded cried asked my coworkers to refill the chick peas for me, but they refused.
So I had
them fired to do it myself.
What do you think my issue was with the chick peas? They were just innocent little chick peas….right?
That is what you think. That is what the chick peas also want you to think.
I hated the smell of them. Remember when I went on and on about funny smells back HERE?
I can sum up the description of the smell of chick peas in ONE WORD:
They smell like f*rts to me. Yes, someone’s passed gas. ughhh.
And I avoid eating stuff that smells like f*rts. One of my golden rules.
But for some reason, hummus when mixed with roasted red peppers or pine nuts does not smell like
farts chick peas.
Aren’t you glad you learned all of this today?
I am nothing if not a giver of good information. And chick peas stories.
Now, go to the store and purchase some hummus and pretzel crisps. (whatever you do, don’t buy the hummus with olives in it…I loathe the smell of olives even worse than f*rts. Really.)
You may want to pick up some milk and bread too….you are getting low.
You are welcome.
PS. I have never typed or spoke the word F*RTS so much in my life till today.
