I was lucky enough to have another snow day today... I wasn't nearly as lazy as yesterday. Played some wordfeud with my brother, got some work done that's due tomorrow, watched some Ellen, and even Jazzercised tonight! I heart Jazzercise. <3
Anyway, in the midst of all that I made some more hummus. Here it is in the food processor:
|Alissa's Green Olive Hummus (1st attempt!)|
Now, I've decided that I'm not going to give you the recipe until I perfect it. I basically added a bunch of stuff in there today just to see how it would turn out. Pretty good, but it could be better. Wouldn't you rather have a recipe that's perfected? Yep, I thought so.
I also made Turkey Tetrazzini tonight for dinner. Mmmm... and I may have made this, too:
|Garbanzo and Avocado Salad (WW recipe)|
Wow. Just wow. Oh glorious garbanzo beans! This was soooooooooo fabulous. Jimmy and I ate the whole bowl of it between us and barely touched the tetrazzini! Can you believe that?! Awesome. I will definitely make this again. The bright side? We have leftover tetrazzini... which I personally think is even better than fresh tetrazzini. Yum!
*Side note: For some reason, all of the recipes that I get out of this one WW magazine that I have I cannot find links for the recipes. I'll give you the gist of what's included in the salad... I eyeballed the amounts based on what I had available and the fact that I wasn't making this for a small army.
-1/2 c. grape tomatoes, halved
-2 cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
-1 avocado, pitted and chopped
-1 small can of diced green chiles
-1/4 c. feta cheese
-1 clove garlic, chopped
-salt and pepper to taste
-2 T. fresh lemon juice
Throw it all in a bowl, stir, and eat! Easy! If you plan to save some of it for a later date, add the avocado separately so it doesn't brown. You'll have to add new avocado when next you eat... that is, if there's any left!
Here's hoping for 50 more blogs of delicious food! Thanks for reading, readers... if you're out there... :-)
