Today, we made three batches of home made hummus.  We are going to try them with our dinner tonight.  One is traditional chickpea hummus with tahini and garlic and lemon, one is a chickpea hummus with feta cheese spinach and oddly enough cinnamon, and the third is a southwestern hummus with black beans, cilantro, pablano peppers and lime.  They are chilling in the refrigerator at the moment and should each be very good.  

We also went on the first bike ride of the season (I had to get the bikes down and fill the tires with air first.  Our first jaunt was only five miles, but we had fun.  

It hit a very warm and humid 88 degrees today after thunderstorms overnight (32 degrees C).  It really felt like Summer!  

Our garden is planted except for the popcorn and sunflowers.  They are still struggling to germinate in the little soil pellets we have now moved into the back porch to get warmer.  When they are about 4 inches tall, we elwill move them into the garden.   

But, our tomatoes and tomatillos look great as do our bell peppers and jalapeƱos.   The cucucumbers are growing well as are our sweet potatoes.  And, our cabbage is looking good too (we grew purple cabbage this year).  My favorite part of the garden, however are the herbs we are growing and all look good!  We have two different types of tarragon, three types of basil, Rosemary, sage, two types of mint, cilantro, and thyme.

It's been a while since I made hummus. Our garden is doing great and I would guess less then two week we will be eating fresh strawberries out of the garden.
Coffee is on

Well that sounds very appetising, Professor! What kind of bread do you eat your hummus on? Have you tried eating it with tortillas?
