Day 17.5. Halfway!

First, my newest cooking attempt:  hummus!  I have no decent excuse why it’s taken me years to get around to making this myself — well, OK, I do actually: who the heck keeps tahini on hand all the time?!

Anyway, it’s so easy and the texture of the homemade is so much better than store bought:  2 cans chickpeas, about half a can of water, a garlic clove, 2 T. tahini, drizzle of olive oil, lemon juice and salt to taste – whir up in the food processor.  Dash or two of paprika when serving.

Who has tahini on hand all the time?  Me!

Second: day 17.5 marked the half-way point of our 5 week commitment!  Wow.  While it is true that I have a 3 page list of things I still want to accomplish in the time that’s left, I’m pretty proud of all that we’ve done!  (Even the failures have been, if nothing else, entertaining — kale chips*, I’m looking at you!)   My big goal ASAP is to sit down and assess how this way of eating is affecting our grocery budget.  Look for a report later this week.

Lastly: from the Fort Wayne Farmer’s Market — their schedule and locations for the summer.  Find the one that works best for you!
