Is this still a food blog?

I know I have been neglectful of the foodie readers out there.  However, I have been eating some great foods lately.  Real Estate has been picking up again and I have been trying to get to some more of the good shows in Atlanta as well as plan my vegan potluck.  It has been a busy time but a boy has to eat!

After a day of hiking recently, we made some of my BarBQ chicpeas.  When I was younger, this was a staple in my diet.  I was broke, I was busy, and I wanted something hearty.  I must have eaten these several times a week when I lived in Santa Fe.  They kept me alive.  Over the years I have taken a more simple dish and livened it up a bit, but it is still a comfort food for me.

I also made a nice udon noodle and teriyaki sauce dish.  I made quite a bit to get me through some long days at the jobby job and it really hit the spot.  So many great veggies always bring it home.

A recent pick up at a local thrift store was this awesome coup bowl/cup.  Needing to use it right away, I made gazpacho!  Truly, I need to post this recipe as it is fantastic.  I shared with co-workers at the jobby job and they could not believed they liked something that did not have animals in it!  Really, keep after me for this recipe so I actually post it!

Of course, no day is complete at my house without a bedtime snack!  Since Ashley recently got a waffle maker, she made us maple waffles!  We even put on some (store bought) maple ice cream to really throw the flavors over the top!

Those waffles look so good! It makes me want a waffle maker so badly, but I just don't know if I can justify another kitchen appliance.
