Hummus made simple and cheap

2 cans Garbanzo Beans AKA Chickpeas. Rinsed well!!!

Juice of about a half a Lemon or to your taste

a clove or more of Garlic finely minced or use the minced in the jar or the Garlic in a tube and really if push gets to shove use granulated or powder.Just be careful after it sits for a while it tends to get spicy.

a touch of Sesame Oil or about a spoonful of Tahini (Sesame paste). To taste.

Place all the ingredients into a Food-processor, a Blender or even use a Potato masher. Whatever works for you.

Your done. It stores in an airtight container I’d say for about a week.

Cost for 24 ounces of Hummus maybe $4. Cost at a Grocer 10 ounces on sale $4

Time to prepare less than 10 minutes.

Til next time……..enjoy:)

We all wanted something different for Dinner the other night. I wanted a Sweet Potato/Yam. My Guy wasn’t feeling good. So, he wanted Ramen (of course). My Kid found some packaged Crescent Rolls, Ham and Cheddar in the fridge.

image
This it he came up with. He rolled the package of Crescent Rolls out and split it into 2. Layered the Ham and Cheese. Rolled them up and baked to the Crescent Roll instructions. YUM

 

 

Til next time….enjoy 🙂

Playing with Ramen

Sautéed Green Beans and Carrots in Butter with Garlic. Cook til tender add some Chicken(is you have any leftover from something else) or not 🙂 , Balsamic Dressing, Scallions, the season pack from the Ramen and a touch of Lemon Juice. This is just one of the many Ramen creations my kid makes.

FYI: To my Vegetarian and Vegan followers just skip the Chicken, Butter(use a good quality Oil of your choice) and the season packet. Maybe add some Teriyaki or some Bragg’s www.bragg.com/products/bragg-liquid-aminossoy-alternative.html 

Til next time…..find the time to play 🙂
