New House Pics & a Saaaweet Salad!

Hey guys! I’m so glad you liked the Kickin’ Barbecue Hummus from yesterday! And thanks to a couple of your comments, I’m not craving barbecue roasted chickpeas. Mmm!

So…are you guys ready for some pics of the new Casa de Broccoli? Uvvvvvvv course you are! Join me in a little “photo tour”!

View of the living room when you first walk in the front door.
The door in the pic goes out toΒ the patio.

To the left of the living room is the kitchen and dining room.

To the right are all the bedrooms and the bathroom.

Linen closet (which I do NOT have in my house I’m in now)!

Bedroom #1: Soon to be office

Bedroom #2: Thinking about making this my workout room when I’m able to get the elliptical that I want! πŸ™‚

Hallway bathroom.

Hallway leading to master. The W&D go behind those doors.

Master bedroom.

Master bath with jacuzzi tub! Schaaaaaweeeeet!

The perfect sink/counter combo for a single gal…ie, no double vanities!

Master bedroom walk-in closet. Pretty sure I could hide a few refugees in there if needed! Hey, you never know! πŸ˜‰

And, the pics you’ve all been waiting for…The KITCHEN!!

Now complete with my new stainless appliances…LURVE!

Pantry (another thing I am currently without)!

Sorry the lighting is a bit off in some of the pics. Halfway through the meeting/walk through today, it started storming. Yay! Just in time to move! 😦 I’m hoping it all clears up in the morning.

After my meeting at the house, I drove across town and picked up the rental truck. And yeah, I’m feeling sorta proud of myself for backing all 16 feet of it into my driveway without a. Hitting the mailbox and b. Running into the house! πŸ˜‰

Another thing I’m feeling proud of? The salad I made for dinner! I just can’t NOT post about this!

Remember my spinach and steebies that I rewarded myself with on Saturday? Well, since the day I bought them, I have been craving this salad.

Strawberries, Sweet Roasted Cinnamon Chickpeas, pecans, and crumbled goat cheese all on a bed of baby spinach.

Sweet Roasted Cinnamon Chickpeas: (serves 2)

  • 1 cup chickpeas
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey or agave (I used honey)
  • cinnamon*

1. Whisk vinegar, honey (or agave), and cinnamon in a bowl.
2. Add in chickpeas and toss to coat.
3. Spread evenly on a greased baking sheet and roast at 375Β Β°F for 20-25 minutes, stirring Β  Β  halfway through to prevent burning.

* I started with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, but then after transferring to the baking sheet, Β  Β I got a little sprinkle happy! I DO like my cinnamon! πŸ˜‰

And what could make this salad EVEN BETTER?!

Maple Grove Farms makes the BEST salad dressings!

Open wide!

Well, I’m off to bed! Can’t believe this is my last night in this house! It feels like I’ve waited forever, yet now everything is moving so fast!

Now I’m just praying for good weather, a hassle-free move, and no boo-boos!

  33. Jakethy says:

    When my tiny plastic co-writers and I moved into our house, there was so much more space than apartment living. But we still end up spending most of our time in the kitchen. There’s nothing like having a spacious kitchen with all the bells and whistles. And yours looks like it’s ready to get rocked! ‘Love the wood finish on those cabinets. Lookin’ forward to seein’ it in action.

    • Thank you! I definitely can’t wait to push my sleeves up and break out the kitch soon!

      I just checked out your blog and it looks great! So unique and definitely eye catching!

  34. Jenny says:

    LOVE the new kitchen! I’m jealous…oh and the walkin closet!!!!

    cinnamon roasted chick peas!!! YUUUMMMMMMMM!!! That salad is beautiful and looks so delicious. I would love to find some of that strawberry vinaigrette too!

    And of course your house is beautiful! So much space! My current house has ONE CLOSET!.. ONE! and its in the spare bedroom… who designed this place?!

    • Oh my gosh! One closet?? That’s insane! I once lived in an apartment that the refrigerator door would only open 3/4 of the way because it smacked into the wall! Oy!
