Basil is truly my favorite herb. I love the cool, refreshing flavor. And it always reminds me of summer. And since summer is on itâ€™s way out, thereâ€™s no time like the present to make this Basil Tomato Hummus:
- 2 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1/2 cup packed fresh basil leaves
- 1/2 cup loose sundried tomato halves
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons tahini sauce
- Dash of salt
- Dash of pepper
- Combine in food processor and let â€˜er whirl. May take some time to combine.
Delicious â€“ eating a slice of toast smeared in Basil Tomato Hummus kind of reminded me of pizza, actually. Pizza you can dip your fingers into again and again.
Letâ€™s see â€“ Iâ€™m exhausted. Last nightâ€™s festivities totally did me in. Good thing my boss is the Husband and he lets me slack off at work when Iâ€™m not feeling so hot. As long as patients donâ€™t catch me snoozing behind the desk!
In addition to the hummus sammie, I grabbed a little side salad from a nearby restaurant for lunch:
In the mix:
My next goal is to tackle this mess:
And pack for a weekend trip. Iâ€™m going back to Philadelphia (third time in a month!) for BFF Laurenâ€™s wedding. Iâ€™m going to be a bridesmaid and am very, very excited. Our friends have been referring to the wedding as â€˜the wedding of the centuryâ€™ because rumor has it that the party is going to be pretty swanky. Leave it to Lauren to go big or go home!
Random question of the day: How many weddings did you attend this summer? We had two, but our friends Nicole and Isaac went to approximately 1,032. I swear they had a wedding or two every weekend.
