  1. Joy,

    Since you have several kilos of chickpeas, why not make some crispy spicy chickpeas for a holiday gift instead of chez mix?

    All that chat about caramelized onions has inspired me to make a pot. I have been stranded by myself since March in the Philippines, and defs no chance to get take away. Getting tired of my own food and have been looking for something to spruce up my meals.

    Interesting to hear you two talk about spending so much time with your spouse’s during this time and how you feel when they are away. This experience has mimicked for others what we on a sailboat have been living for the past decade- intense time together in small space. That we’ve been separated for the past 9 months has been very strange.

    Thanks again for all your hard work!

    1. That’s a great idea for the chickpeas, Heather. Thank you. Good point about the sailboat life. I’ve thought a lot about how this time would be good training for life on the spacestation 🙂

  2. Hi Friends! I was inspired to make caramelized onions and kale for dinner tonight. We are not big kale eaters, but had some in the fridge from a CSA box. Adding caramelized onions to kale may turn us into kale eaters. Yummy! Chex mix is a special holiday treat for us as well. I use my grandma’s recipe that calls it Scramble instead. I’m sure she cut it out of an old magazine along with her Orange Salad recipe. (A delightful mix of orange jello (dry), cottage cheese, mandarin oranges, and cool whip.) The pandemic has certainly been a unique challenge having everyone home all the time. Such a change from when my hubby traveled 4-5 months out of a year. It’s been nice, but hard as well as I need alone time to recharge…and the dishes. So many dishes!
    Thank you for the great episode!
