No "Ho-Hum" in Hummus

While away at our son's home Monday and Tuesday,  I managed to maintain my pursuit of health and good eating habits.  Our "mission" was to help with some landscaping projects.  In spite of some rainy weather, I was able to wield a clippers and shape several shrubs while the men filled in some low spots with top soil in preparation for planting some grass.

We took our grandson out to lunch at Mika's, a great coffee shop in their hometown.  He and I both selected the hummus plate which included cucumbers, tomatoes and pita.  The others chose the chicken chili and turkey wraps or sandwiches.  The hummus was delicious!  While I didn't come away with the specific measurements, I did learn they made their hummus with chick peas, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and cumin.

I can't wait to blend my own tomorrow!  Hummus is a healthy and filling protein alternative.


  1. You know Rebecca I love what you healthy and you describe it so that I can taste each bite.....I also have been using my slow cooker so much lately and am so thankful that you reminded me of how easy it is and I have a wonderful meal ready when I come home. I love your post my friend....:-) Hugs

  2. Oh do I love, love, love good hummus! I've made an entire meal of Lebanese style food and it can be so healthy. So many things are "fresh". Especially all that parsley they use. Good thing I'm not hungry right now, or I'd be salivating! Thanks for the reminder that healthy can taste VERY good!

  3. Sounds delicious and looks very appetizing.... good choice!
