In the comments on my last post Becki mentioned that she didn't know about safety joints such as I use in my bears so thought I'd show a picture...
The back of the picture shows how they go together....the part with the post goes in the arm (or leg) and the mid-sized circle is a washer....the small circle clamps the entire thing together.
And here is the result of much trial and error....
Here's a recipe we tried over the weekend, adapted
from one found on WellPlated.com
MEDITERRANEAN CHICKPEA SALAD
¼ c. fine diced red onion
1 can chickpeas, rinsed & drained
¾ c. chopped fresh parsley
½ EACH Red, orange & green peppers, chopped
¼ large cucumber, chopped (1 c)
1 c. crumbled feta cheese
1 ½ T. olive oil 1 ½ T. red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced ¾ tsp. dried oregano
½ tsp. kosher salt ¼ tsp. pepper
Soak onions in bowl of cool water while
prepping the remainder. Combine all and refrigerate.
