Sweet Potato + Chickpea Salad

I know it’s hard to imagine, but I’m really pitiful when I’m sick.

I don’t want to move or be spoken to or even feed myself. I revert back to my 2-year-old self. I was adorable but a terror apparently??? Idk.

In between whines, I managed to convince Garrett to bring me Chick-fil-A on his way home. I’ve told you all about my feelings toward those nuggets before, but my goodness. They are basically a wonder drug.

If I were a doctor, I’d prescribe everyone Chick-fil-A menu items. “Oh you have a migraine? Easy – 12 nuggets & the dipping sauce of your choice.” “Oh you’ve got bronchitis? Let’s do a spicy chicken sandwich & a milkshake.” Not only would I be the most sought after doc in town, I’d also probably get some sort of Chick-fil-A ad campaign out of it & I’ve always wanted to be on a billboard.

Thank God I make blog meals on the weekends so you wouldn’t have to be without my useless ramblings today.
