This week I made Chickpea Salad with Cucumbers and Tomatoes. I love chickpeas. We always have a case of chickpeas from Costco on hand. This salad is right up my alley. I subbed red wine vinegar for the lemon juice because I forgot to buy it at the store. I am happy with the way it turned out that way and will probably make it that way again, as I regularly forget to buy lemons at the store.
The rabbits are eating my parsley, so this might be the only time I get to use garden parsley this year. The chipmunks are eating my strawberry plants, so I need to address how to keep them out or give up on strawberries. Luckily they are leaving the tomato alone and the lettuce is too high for bunnies, ground squirrels, and other neighborhood pests to bother.
