garbanzo bean & raisin salad.

Classes are officially over, but I still have a bit more work to finish up. Needless to say, it has been really insane around here. We have a mountain of laundry, & I feel like the pile of dishes never seem to make it back into the cupboard. Luckily, we have remained in good eating habits, otherwise I would probably be even more exhausted.

Here is a quick, delicious lunch or side dish with bright flavors.
