When I saw this recipe I heard the avocado calling me. I knew I would make this. It was just a matter of time. Enter summer and my new camera guy!

This recipe was originally for a sandwich and the ingredients were mashed up and placed on whole wheat bread. I had it both ways and either way, it is yummy! I had to split the recipe from the Original Recipe by Two Peas & Their Pod because I am the only one in the house who will eat this. The first day I had it as a salad.

Here is what you are going to need -

Chickpea, Avocado & Feta Cheese Salad

1/2 Can of Chickpeas
1 Avocado
1 Green Onion
1 T Chopped Cilantro
1/4 Cup of Feta Cheese
1 Lime

*Salt and pepper to taste

The next day I used the rest of the chickpeas and made my second batch. I had the first half in a sandwich and the rest in my salad last night for dinner.

I can’t wait to make it again as an alternative to guacamole.

Thank you Pinterest Planning and Pinterest!

PS I am loving my new camera guy!

I’m finding myself using Pinterest a lot for recipes. My brain seems to adapt to this format very well. I am always referring to it to try something new. We just returned from the store and got all the ingredients to make the following dishes. Currently I am in a dilemma about which chickpea dish to make first. I am thinking it’s going to be the avocado dish!

I need to get more fruits and vegetables in my little guy. When it comes to fruits there are very few he actually eats. Watermelon is one of them. So when I saw this Watermelon Cake I thought it might be a good shot that he would eat it. In addition, I could try some strawberries. Here’s what you need -

Watermelon Cake

1 Watermelon
Strawberries, halved and quartered
Cool Whip
Sliced almonds

First, cut stems off strawberries, cut them in half and quarter them. Clean with soap and water. I enlisted my little guy and he was all for it, what a great help he has become! Next, cut a cylinder out of the watermelon (instead of using the whole watermelon I thought I would try a small one first and it was a good thing because the watermelon we picked was not very tasty).

Once you have the watermelon into the shape of a cylinder frost it with the Cool Whip

Not only did my little guy help with slicing and cleaning the strawberries as well as icing the watermelon he was also the camera guy – I think I found myself a new photographer!

Found this fun project on Pinterest!
