As far back as I can recall, I have LOVED salt and vinegar chips. The way they tingle on your tongue- make your eyes and mouth water…yum!
When I was younger, I liked to think of myself as some-what of a chip ninja. I was only allowed to eat chips once a week for the TGIF quadrivium of bad television- Dinosaurs, Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper, Boy Meets World, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I remember navigating my way around our 25 chip maximum by devouring an entire bag in a hidden location within our home.
Now, 20 years later ( holy s&%$, that makes me feel old), not much has changed, but I am a struggling ninja. Rather than hiding with the chips, I hide them from myself (this never works- obviously I KNOW where I put them). Torn between wanting to fit in my sexy ninja suit, and giving into temptation by devouring, yet another bag, of salt and vinegar chips. I am desperate for resolve. You can’t be a ninja without fitting into your ninja suit, right?!
And so begins my quest to replace chips. Let us start with Salt and Vinegar Chickpeas from Angela Liddon’s ohsheglows website.
