Hummus Success!

Unlike the baking failure I had earlier today, I did have success with making homemade hummus from this recipe.

I also made hummus a couple of weekends ago and devoured it in about two days. I don't know if I will buy hummus at the store again. It's just so easy to make at home!

I put some of it on an open faced veggie sandwich with spinach, cucumber slices, and some Frank's Red Hot and sea salt on top and had this for lunch, along with a sliced honeycrisp apple and some almond butter.

This morning, I had some of this new coffee creamer from Coffee Mate. It's called Natural Bliss and I tried the Sweet Cream flavor. The others I could have chosen from were Caramel and Vanilla. I tend to like the plain flavors more in my coffee.

It's not something I will buy that often, but it's a nice treat to have once in a while.

I usually buy half and half for my coffee and that is all I need to make my cup creamy and tasty.

The first half of my Sunday was very productive. I did laundry, cleaned the glass on my car window (it had been driving me nuts), did dishes, took out the summer shoes in my closet for winter storage and managed to find five pairs of shoes to get rid of, and then I put away laundry and made the bed with fresh sheets. I was exhausted by lunch time and then relaxed off and on the rest of the afternoon. I got through another magazine as my pile really needs to decrease soon.

And tonight, I am just looking forward to the Amazing Race! Truthfully, I am always a bit bored in the beginning stages of the season and like it more when weak teams are eliminated. I also tend to be more interested if they are in countries I am looking forward to traveling to one day.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, what's left of it!


  1. Thank you for sharing your hummus recipe. I love hummus and carrot chips as a snack.

  2. yeah, I tried the new bliss, I'm not sure if I like it.

  3. homemade hummus is definitely better than store-bought! add some pepperoncinis next time and you will LOVE it! it adds in a little bit of extra sweetness and spice

  4. Homemade hummus is pretty easy, isn't it?! And so much tastier than store-bought. I have several flavored hummus recipes on my site. You'll see, it's very addicting to create and you'll want to make more and more flavors!
