BBQ Rubbed Chickpea + Cauliflower Tacos

I dressed up as a bag lady for Halloween.

By that, I mean I wore two ginormous sweaters, my Big Lots slippers and tucked my leggings into knee socks.

Big hit with the kids.

I could barely sit still yesterday. I was so anxious to see all of the small tots dressed up as Elsa’s and super heroes I have never heard of. I even put the candy in a porcelain bowl & lit all of my pumpkin candles. I was ready! Prepared for a full night of trick-or-treaters! Unfortunately, there was a really adorable mini Luigi with a lil mustache & he won me over & I gave him all of our candy so our porch light was out by 6:15 p.m.

There was also an edible lil Pikachu who yelled at me for giving his friend the good candy.

    The recipe looks divine and I shall make it in the next 24 hours. I’m envious that you had to make an effort to be a bag lady …. I have reached a stage where I fear it is my default 😂
