    Neat clock, Emmy! And way to go on those books and gift certificate!! Russell is trying to get me into the Simpsons. I have never seen a whole episode. We’re planning to rent a season this weekend — for $1! Gotta love Movie Gallery.

    Indian food – yum. I remember a day when my son turned three and I was 9 months pregnant, expecting my daughter within two days… I spent six hours baking and decorating a Bart Simpson cake.

    No trips planned to chicago soon, but I just discovered that the closet Trader Joes to me is Chicago. I am trying to convince my DH to vacation near a Trader Joe’s at least every six months so I can shop and take advantage of the bargains.

    The Aloo Chloe looks wonderful. I can almost smell the curry over here. I haven’t tried those pretzels yet but I’ll keep my eye out for them. Marty loves pretzels too.

    Great bargains! I really wish I had a gal pal who would go bargain hunting with me. Marty’s no fun. He hates it and pouts the whole time.

    Yum – I love Indian food but, sadly, there are no restaurants in the area and my daughter/mom won’t eat Indian food.

    You got some great deals — it looks like you’re having fun checking out the sales in your new town.

    You sound like a girl after my own heart. I love a good thrifty find. I love love love old books and the cool stuff you find inside. I am definitely going to try those pretzles!

    What a yummy post! The clock is fantastic, I give mad props to Rob, too! And I can’t decide which I like better, the simpsons or the newman’s own pretzels. Probably eating the pretzels while watching the Simpsons- ha ha.
    And the food is delish as usual- I would love to make my own scallion pancakes- where’d you find the recipe?

    I am glad you’re posting again, and hope all is well with you. =)

    Potatoes and chickpeas…. a perfect combo! Lol! The dish looks great, as do those pancakes!

    I had to say that my daughter is addicted to those spelt pretzels!! I need to by them by the case too!

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone 😀

    Ruthie, when I met Rob, he had never seen an episode of the Simpsons! Then he started watching it and became just as crazy about the show as I am. I hope you enjoy it if you rent it. I think you will 🙂

    VV, it’s a shame you don’t live closer as I’d gladly go bargain hunting with you 🙂 Rob actually enjoys going to garage/estate sales. He likes to look at the records, tools, and garage stuff.

    Hi Twisted Cinderella, thanks for stopping by 🙂 Always fun to “meet” another person who loves old books !!!

    Bazu, I told Rob you seconded my mad props. He thought that was great 😀 Eating pretzels while watching the Simpsons is exactly what we did! LOL I got the Scallion Pancake Recipe from a post by Chef Deb at Vegsource. To make them thinner, leave out the baking powder and I added more soymilk than the recipe calls for. I’ve still got to play around with the recipe to get them the way I like them.

    The aloo chana looks delicious! It is one of those dishes that almost tastes better the next day when the flavors really get into the chickpeas 🙂 I love scallion pancakes but have never tried making them…yours look so good!
