Homemade Pita Chips



Lately I have been craving hummus. I've been on a different path the past few weeks. I think it has something to do with this. Found myself unable to cut chicken up the other day, indeed. But I digress. SO......when my youngest son asked me to make these baked pita chips, I was all for it. I mean, what goes better with hummus than pita chips, carrots and tomatoes? So here is the recipe:

Take a package of good quality pita bread and separate each so it becomes two circles by using scissors around the edge. Then cut each circle into about 6-8 chip pieces depending on the size that "interests" you. Lay on a baking pan inside-side UP. Brush with EVOO (thank you Rachel Ray...I wonder if I could ever go back to calling it simply olive oil?) and sprinkle with kosher (coarse) salt and pepper. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Everyone loves them and they are healthier this way. :D

Bergere Chairs.........ooooooohlala.......

I think I am in love. A pair of these in a fun, graphic, geometric print sound just divine.

My first design project is a fictitious writer client, whose favorite color is Dunn and Edwards' Frozen Wave (essentially aqua). The color was handed to me by my instructor and must be used in 20% of the space. So......I am thinking that these chairs need to be in the picture, most definitely.....probably in white with a dark wood and then some cool graphic blue and bright green pillows. That just might work. I am a total beginner!!!! I will take some photos of my fabric swatches soon. :)









Please note:  all images were found via Google Images.  I only *wish* I personally had these chairs to photograph for you all.  :)

Room Design

Here is an object of beauty that I am planning for the writer's retreat I am designing...I love it in the dark bronze laquer....




And here is a very cool site to help with space planning and room design. Much easier than the process by which I am currently learning with architects tools and tons of measuring (read: eyestrain)!!! I wish I had known about it earlier.
