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!
