Moroccan Chickpea Pockets

Happy Monday! Today is a great day to start the week because it's Secret Recipe Club day! Members of the Secret Recipe Club are assigned a blog each month. Who has who is a secret until reveal day (today!). The mission is to choose a recipe from the assigned blog, make it, and share it!

Happy Monday! How were your weekends!? Mine consisted of lots of yard work (and garden work… I have tomatoes coming out my ears!), with a few awesome hiking views thrown in.

TGIF… And here’s to this weekend being better than last! We planned to spend a super fun long Memorial Day weekend down in San Diego, but then Nick got sick with a stomach bug. It was not super fun. Not even a little bit fun. So it won’t take  much for this weekend to be…
