The Hummus Among Us
Last week I made a recipe that I thought was going to turn out like one of my favorite little dishes at Portland's Toro Bravo - roasted chickpeas with paprika. The ones they serve at the restaurant are really crunchy. Mine... not so much. The batch I made had a bit of a mush factor. Believing that it's a cardinal sin to waste anything (right, Mom?), I went about finding a way to use the too-soft chickpeas. I concocted a hummus of sorts, using what we had on hand in the kitchen. I say "of sorts" because I didn't have any tahini sauce, an important ingredient in real hummus. No matter, we've had fake-o hummus and vegetable sandwiches - and tasty ones at that, if I do say so myself - for dinner several days in a row now. Last night we enjoyed them in a little picnic at the park.
On to today's shop update. We've been witnessing some magnificent skies in the evenings recently, full of beautiful pinks and blues. Seems like a good time to list these:
