Bowling and ChickpeasPosted: August 5, 2011
Last night I went to a Chamber of Commerce bowling mixer. My dad invited me and the BF (although he had to work late) and told me “bowling attire” was required. Well I don’t bowl often enough to have proper bowling attire so I sent the BF to Goodwill with specific instructions. If he couldn’t find a real bowling shirt with someone else’s name on it (my first choice) then I wanted a button down hawaiian print shirt. I think he did a fine job:
|Deb & Dad – do we look good or what?!|
My dad already had his shirt. Can you see where I get my fashion sense?
While picking out that beauty for me, the BF ran across another fabulous bowling shirt. I brought it for whoever might want it. Our 4th (or “my date” as she called herself) was WAY overdressed and promptly decided that some team spirit was in order.
I think my stepmom was embarrassed that she didn’t have a cool shirt like the rest of us.
Aren’t we a fine looking team.
Good thing we look good because we can’t bowl worth a darn!
Whoa! Is that a 65 for me? I was too busy doing this:
And maybe a little of this…
And I might have joined her in this… Can’t let her drink alone!
Of course that drinking might have contributed to this form…
Although mine was not any better…
I sure didn’t inherit my bowling form…
We didn’t win any door prizes, but a good time was had by all. See… Look how happy I look while disinfecting from said “good time.”
You’re probably wondering where the chickpeas come in, right? Luckily, they have nothing to do with bowling. I made chickpea salad today. It’s like a vegetarian version of tuna salad. It’s quick and yummy. I did my first swimming workout today and boy was it tough! I swam 10 laps which is something pathetic like 0.4 miles, but it felt like longer. I was out of breath almost immediately and my arms were almost too tired to shampoo my hair afterwards. I’ll definitely be doing more swimming though. It was a great workout!
So for lunch I threw together some chickpea salad.
- 1 cup chickpeas (mine were previously cooked and then frozen for convenient use later)
- 1/2 carrot, chopped
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 1-2 TBS mayo
- 1 TBS spicy mustard
- 1-2 TBS dill relish
