It's been a long while since a TGIF post! It's been a crazy busy and productive couple weeks...my nieces are coming over tomorrow to help me process the remaining packages of squares....but tonight...tonight this gal is officially taking a break!
Those look like nuts in the ramekin, but they are actually roasted chickpeas (garbanzo beans). Just rinse, dry, toss in a little olive oil and seasoning and bake at 400 for about 40 minutes. Try it. You won't be sorry!
In other beady news, I happened upon a fun repair job. One of my girlfriends back in D.C. told me that a mutual friend of ours had recently gifted her with a beautiful beaded bracelet that he had picked up in Italy.
She said the minute she put it on, the clasp started to break off and beads fell everywhere!
It was threaded with something similar to Nymo so I can see that the thread likely broke off near the crystals. I'm hoping there will be enough room in the existing beads to reinforce the whole thing with Fireline. Luckily she was able to recover most of the beads. And I think it's so cool that this gorgeous woven bracelet ended up in my hands having started over in Italy! I'm curious to know if anyone recognizes the pattern?
Time to go catch up on some blog reading and enjoy my glass of wine! Happy Friday to all!
