(Yogi helps out in the studio with a thing or 2... below a golden doodle mug by me for Lynn who had a black golden doodle)

Lynn sees pics of Yogi here and writes "I lost my black golden doodle recently, could you make me a mug?" and YOU KNOW I can.  It is a hard thing to sculpt, just a mass of fuzz and curls, but easy for me to draw, so this is what you get!

I was out Wednesday with a friend who introduces me to crispy curried chickpea snacks from the store and I am like "a) these are AWESOME and b) I could make these, I bet..." and
OF COURSE the internet has zillions of baked crispy chickpea snacks.  (click here for recipe)
The basic idea is:  drain some chickpeas in a can and rinse, dry, toss with a little oil, bake on a baking sheet, pull out and toss with salt and spice.  I didn't see any reason why I couldn't make wasabi-curry together.... Easier (almost) than making popcorn!

LOVE chickpea snacks, I think I may have to bake me up some. The golden doodle mug is awesome as well btw

Spike's interest was pretty short lived I bet. Never knew Golden Doodles could be Black Doodles! You're the king of kindness.

wabi-sabi chick peas would be awesome!

I just recently had chickpea snacks for the first time, and they were delicious. I'm definitely going to try making these at home. Am I brave enough for wasabi? I'm wondering how cayenne/a bit of sugar would turn out..
