              I had about 1/3 cup of purple hummus with some carrots and celery as my mid-afternoon snack.  Yum!

                I never liked hummus, but maybe I’ll have to try it again as purple is one of my favorite colors. šŸ™‚

                That’s so odd that it turned out purple, it must be the lack of crap in it. šŸ™‚
