Hummus

Our entire family loves hummus.  We usually buy Sabra because it comes in a large container for a good price at Sam's.  We've also been known to pick it up the Aldi's and it's ok.  But lately, we've been making our own and it is the best!  The cafeteria ladies at school came into Eleanor's class recently and showed them how easy it is to make your own hummus.  Of course El loved that and so started our hummus making.  We found tahini sauce (not just the paste) at Trader Joe's and depending on what we're making the hummus for we also add lemon, or garlic, or red pepper, or olives....it just depends. 
I have a recipe for fried chickpea burgers (hummus burgers, essentially) which I'd not made for awhile.  I was remembering them as a nice runner up to falafel.   It must have been a really long stretch between a good falafel sandwich and those chickpea burgers when I decided that this recipe was a keeper. They were edible but kind of felt like a waste of some awesome hummus.   So no recipe today.  Unless of course you'd never thought of a hummus sandwich and then let me tell you, you're in for a treat! 

We are really, really hoping for major winter weather in these parts tomorrow.  Snow Day, Snow Day, Snow Day!!!
