Does anyone make hummus? I found out last night that DS loves it! He acquired a taste while in Kuwait. I know it is chickpeas and a little good olive oil, but what is it seasoned with?

You need tahini, garlic and lemon juice also.

I don't know about down there, but up here, one of the best tasting brands is sold in the grocery stores, but also costco. And it is less than half the price at costco. The big tub at the grocery stores is 5.89, but the same tub at costco is 2 for $5.

I went to take a quick nap - literally - I set my alarm for just 45 min, figuring it would take me 10 min. or so to fall asleep & then I'd get in a half hour nap or so. 2.5 hours later, I am finally awake! I not only slept through the alarm, I also slept through a phone call (which was nothing more than those stupid scammers promising you a free trip to bahamas or whatever for taking their survey). Apparently I was a lot more tired than I thought!

Imogene, this is a recipe from a well-known Canadian chef. I'm sure there are many recipes out there though.

I LOVE hummus, and so does most of my family. My mom doesn't use mayo on any of her sandwiches anymore - only hummus. And we all eat hummus and pita, or hummus and veggies. I love carrots and red peppers with hummus.

I've noticed a smell in my kitchen the last day or so. Same thing, I took out the trash, checked the fridge, put baking soda down the drain. Turns out it was a fresh garlic gone rancid. It had fallen into a container on the counter. Boy is that one nasty smell.

The hummus was served last night with a HUGE green olive (the kind with the pit still in), in the center. DH told Lyla it was a camel egg! She didn't stop talking about that all night.

I'm disappointed Brenchel made it to the final three on AR. I haven't been able to watch all season because of them. They (her in particular) annoy me so much that I can't stand to watch it. I was hoping they'd get eliminated and I could at least watch the finale, but no such luck.

Tonight is the season finale of the Mentalist. I will wait up for that!

Wish I had some hummus and pita chips.

I have hummus, but no pita. I was at the grocery store today, but the small pitas were staleish. The large ones were nice & fresh, but I can't eat a package of large ones on my own before they go stale, so I very seldom buy them.

Found out from DS that he gets really good hummus at the grocery store they go to. I will have to go by there.

Ugh. I hate when you click on something on pinterest and it takes you to a blog post on someone's blog that has absolutely nothing to do with the pin you clicked on.

Just realized my crabapple trees haven't bloomed yet. Twenty years at this house and I don't think it's ever been this late.

Trying to look up information on a tv show to find out the name of an actress. The website keeps bringing me to the current tweets. I don't want to read the tweets, I want the cast information. I really dislike all this tweeting business.

Well, I'm late this year! I usually start them in January. I still don't have all the stuff I need. I have another order I have to put in shortly to hopefully get the last of what I need. I want to get going on them though because I have something else I need to get stitched by early fall, so it can be framed before it is needed as a gift.

Yay. Ornament 3 done. Now I can relax for a couple of weeks & do what I like. Even when I start in January, I always worry that I won't get the ornaments done in time. Its ridiculous, because I always have enough time, but I'm always paranoid I won't finish. Even if I only get one done every two weeks now, I'll still finish in time for Christmas.

Why is it that I can go all afternoon without being sleepy, but once it hits 5, I can barely keep my eyes open? And of course, that is late enough that if I nap, I'll never get to bed at a semi-decent hour!

The ebook store makes me When you log in, they show you "recommended picks" based on your buying history. Their choices for me have often made me laugh in the past. Maybe half are somewhat accurate (ie a different book by an author I've previously bought/downloaded), some are semi-accurate (another author in the same genre - especially some of the ones I've downloaded for free. I need to do a cleanup on a bunch of those.) and then there are some that are wildly off the mark. But the ones that really make me shake my head are the suggestions of books I have already bought - in ebook format, from THEM! Today there are not one, not two, not three, but FOUR books in their recommended list that I have bought/downloaded from them. Clearly they need a better algorithm!

Trying to plan for the purchase of a new computer.
My brother recommended two - both of which are in budget range and both of which I like the looks of. But neither has everything I want/need. *sigh* I hate having to make decisions like this!

*stomps foot in childlike tantrum* It isn't fair! I like fireworks and I want to see them. I can hear fireworks coming from no less than THREE different places near me (well, near enough they are in sound range) and I can't see ANY of them!

Oh dear. You can tell it is a holiday long weekend in summer. There be people, somewhat three sheets to the wind, walking up the road singing.
