Chickpeas. No, garbanzo beans. No, uh, gram!

26 October 2005

So someone said to me:

"You can’t find chickpeas? Have you looked in the garbonzo beans section instead?"

*rofl* *breathe* rofl* *breathe* rofl* *breathe* rofl* *breathe* rofl* *breathe* rofl* *breathe* rofl* *breathe*

Okay, I’m fine now. rofl*

*breathe* No, really I am.

Um, honestly, anyone who says that to me has no idea where I live.

I was happy to find red kidney beans the other day – first time I’d seen them here. Shopping is a whole other experience living in this country, let me tell ya!

Back to chickpeas. But yes, I’m pretty sure it’s available here as well. I just have to find it. I mean, heck, chickpea flour is available in every grocery store. It’s gotta be here somewhere. And I could *swear* I’ve seen it here before. Seriously.

I think the store is just out.
