Am I allowed to say TGIF even though I work tomorrow?
Today I spent all morning in the kitchen and all afternoon at the mall and I am exhausted!
Now that I finally have an appropriate food processor for my needs (my last two broke and most recently I tried ordering one from eBay only to receive an industrial sized food processor on my doorstep) I’ve been eating banana soft serve for every single meal and making all sorts of snacks and spreads that were never possible before!
The other day, I swiped the bottom of my Costco container of hummus clean with a chunk of bread. Normally, this would spark a sense of panic (I always need peanut butter, bananas and hummus in my house. Always.)
But no panic here! I simply threw a can of rinsed chickpeas, dried herbs, garlic, tahini, olive oil, vegetable broth, salt and pepper into the belly of the beast and BBBRRRRZZZ. Perfect. chunky. garlicky.
Today I had it on toast with tomatoes and cheese. Broiled until my cheese resembled marshmallows!
