Hey guys! I’m so glad you liked the Kickin’ Barbecue Hummus from yesterday! And thanks to a couple of your comments, I’m not craving barbecue roasted chickpeas. Mmm!
So…are you guys ready for some pics of the new Casa de Broccoli? Uvvvvvvv course you are! Join me in a little “photo tour”!
View of the living room when you first walk in the front door.
The door in the pic goes out to the patio.
To the left of the living room is the kitchen and dining room.
To the right are all the bedrooms and the bathroom.
Linen closet (which I do NOT have in my house I’m in now)!
Bedroom #2: Thinking about making this my workout room when I’m able to get the elliptical that I want! 🙂
Hallway leading to master. The W&D go behind those doors.
Master bath with jacuzzi tub! Schaaaaaweeeeet!
The perfect sink/counter combo for a single gal…ie, no double vanities!
Master bedroom walk-in closet. Pretty sure I could hide a few refugees in there if needed! Hey, you never know! 😉
And, the pics you’ve all been waiting for…The KITCHEN!!
Now complete with my new stainless appliances…LURVE!
Pantry (another thing I am currently without)!
Sorry the lighting is a bit off in some of the pics. Halfway through the meeting/walk through today, it started storming. Yay! Just in time to move! 🙁 I’m hoping it all clears up in the morning.
After my meeting at the house, I drove across town and picked up the rental truck. And yeah, I’m feeling sorta proud of myself for backing all 16 feet of it into my driveway without a. Hitting the mailbox and b. Running into the house! 😉
Another thing I’m feeling proud of? The salad I made for dinner! I just can’t NOT post about this!
Remember my spinach and steebies that I rewarded myself with on Saturday? Well, since the day I bought them, I have been craving this salad.
Strawberries, Sweet Roasted Cinnamon Chickpeas, pecans, and crumbled goat cheese all on a bed of baby spinach.
Sweet Roasted Cinnamon Chickpeas: (serves 2)
- 1 cup chickpeas
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons honey or agave (I used honey)
1. Whisk vinegar, honey (or agave), and cinnamon in a bowl.
2. Add in chickpeas and toss to coat.
3. Spread evenly on a greased baking sheet and roast at 375 °F for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through to prevent burning.
* I started with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, but then after transferring to the baking sheet, I got a little sprinkle happy! I DO like my cinnamon! 😉
And what could make this salad EVEN BETTER?!
Maple Grove Farms makes the BEST salad dressings!
Well, I’m off to bed! Can’t believe this is my last night in this house! It feels like I’ve waited forever, yet now everything is moving so fast!
Now I’m just praying for good weather, a hassle-free move, and no boo-boos!
LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR CASA! It’s dope!
I love that salad dressing! I have a bottle in my fridge! I love your new house! I can’t wait to see it first hand. Maybe we can have coffee and cookies when you get settled 🙂
I LOVED seeing pictures of your house Heather! I was having a crummy crummy night and when I logged into Google Reader and thought “I hope Heather put up pictures of her house!”. And you did! I love the hardwoods and the appliances. 🙂
Good luck moving! I’m so impressed with your truck driving skills. Mr. Fish would be too. 🙂
As always, your salad looked amazing. 🙂
Aww, it makes my day that I cheered you up! Your posts always make me smile…and my tummy growl! 😉

Ok, well looks like you’re gonna have to fight Carrie, Lindsay, AND Emilia over the bedroom, but hey, I got a super comfy couch! 😉 Haha!
I still think I beat you in salad beast size 😉 Don’t worry, it’s just by a little!
On another note, WOW. Amazing house woman. I had no idea the actual size and design of the house. Alright, that’s it, I’m coming to move in 🙂 Don’t worry, I take up very little room and am a good house guest!
Haha! Yeah, you definitely got me beat girl! My salads only hope to be a big and beastastic as yours when they grow up! 😉

That’s too funny…I actually debated between cinnamon and cocoa for the chickpeas! Great minds think alike!
Your new house is gorgeous! I’m loving the living room floors and all that storage space! The kitchen is just dreamy.. stainless steel appliances are amazing. I hope you get moved & settled in quickly!
The salad you made is pretty incredible looking as well! :]

Ps-that salad looks like some kind of wonderful…total spring salad (if it’d ever stop snowing here)
The new house looks AMAZING!! You’ll have so much space for everything! I can imagine how exacted you are. 🙂
I’ve never heard of that brand of dressing before but I’m definitely going to look out for it now! 🙂
The house is beautiful and I’m so excited for you! Dinner looks perfectly refreshing and tasty! Have a great day Heather!
I am literally in love with your kitchen!! I want to play in it 😀
Congrats on the new house!!! That’s sooo exciting and it’s so pretty! My favorite part is the kitchen. 🙂 And that salad looks delicious – I’m going to make those chickpeas as soon as I move into my new apt. this weekend!
Beautiful house! My hubby and I are currently (sort of) looking for a new place. And that salad looks so good, strawberries are the greatest on a salad.
OBSESSED with the wood floors and kitchen! and YUM to that amazing salad. what a great day your having 🙂
Your house is BEAUTIFUL! And that kitchen….I’m a little jealous. 🙂 So impressed you drove a big truck. I don’t know if I could manage it ha.
Your salad looks gorgeous! Cinnamon chickpeas? You are SO creative.
your new house looks AWESOME! the place seems to be huge and have so much storage space, I’m so jealous! hope the move goes well and we’ll be seeing the ‘after’ pictures soon!
Haha! At the rate I’m going it may be six months before I get to the “after” stage!
so jealous of your amazing new house!!! 🙂 congratulations! i can’t wait to see decorated photos.
Casa de Broccoli is gorgeous! Best wishes for you and your new, huge-mongous kitchen.
The house is BEAUTIFUL!! Incredible Kitchen.
And all of your meals are making me jealous. I want pumpkin now!
Su Casa is so incredible i feel the need to ask you if i can just live in one of your kitchen cupboards 🙂 🙂
Haha! You got it girl! Pull up a cabinet!
ummm… im on my way over – make another salad =)
GIRL YOUR KITCHEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY CRAP! It looks amazing! so sparkly and new! congrats girl!!!!
Haha! This was actually the second night in a row that I had this salad…I could NOT wait to have it again!
When my tiny plastic co-writers and I moved into our house, there was so much more space than apartment living. But we still end up spending most of our time in the kitchen. There’s nothing like having a spacious kitchen with all the bells and whistles. And yours looks like it’s ready to get rocked! ‘Love the wood finish on those cabinets. Lookin’ forward to seein’ it in action.
Thank you! I definitely can’t wait to push my sleeves up and break out the kitch soon!
I just checked out your blog and it looks great! So unique and definitely eye catching!
LOVE the new kitchen! I’m jealous…oh and the walkin closet!!!!

cinnamon roasted chick peas!!! YUUUMMMMMMMM!!! That salad is beautiful and looks so delicious. I would love to find some of that strawberry vinaigrette too!
And of course your house is beautiful! So much space! My current house has ONE CLOSET!.. ONE! and its in the spare bedroom… who designed this place?!
Oh my gosh! One closet?? That’s insane! I once lived in an apartment that the refrigerator door would only open 3/4 of the way because it smacked into the wall! Oy!
