Today was a great day. When I woke up the sun was shining, I had nothing pressing to do, AND I was in great company . I relaxed for the majority of the morning and early afternoon decided I needed a pick-me-up.
Late afternoon, hunger struck. So I whipped up some pumpkin hummus. If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times I AM NOT SICK OF PUMPKIN YET! I know, I know. I have no shame. And this hummus was AWESOME.
Into the food processor went:
- 1/2 can of drained/rinsed chick peas
- 1/2 can pumpkin puree
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- about 1/4 c. tahini
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- a good glug of Frank’s Buffalo Sauce
Awesome with pita chips AND carrots. I’m seriously trying to get over my love/hate relationship with raw carrots. I don’t mind them dipped (generously) in hummus. I ate all seven you can see there on my plate.
Dinner was a Mama Pea recipe and some super easy, yet delicious, beer bread. But I’ll post more on that later. So I leave you with this, because I like it (both visually and because it’s something to keep in mind).
