Lost and Found

in All Posts

I had a good day.  I met up with my mom group at a kids’ museum, and I hit up a consignment sale (and you know how I feel about consignment sales).  I did lose one of my favorite earrings – don’t you hate it when that happens?! – and one of Henry’s cute green socks also went missing, but… I’ll take it. 


And I made a yummy bean dip.  It dressed up a plain old grilled tempeh sandwich quite nicely.


I would say this is a hummus, but I was once informed that hummus must contain chickpeas, so we’ll just call it a bean dip.


The secret ingredient?


I used the food processor to combine two cans of white kidney beans (drained and rinsed), 1/4 a cup of sundried tomatoes, and a generous pour of olive oil.  Blended until creamy and perfect.



That was dinner numero one, but now I’m going to round up dinner numero dos.  Time to rest up – tomorrow is the first day of Operation Move The Clinic.  It should be… ahhh… interesting.  And by interesting, I mean pure hell. Because when is moving not pure hell?

    That bean dip sounds delicious! Good luck with the move! I always hate the actual moving part but I LOVE the organizing that comes afterwards!

    I hear ya… moving stinks.

    Um that bean dip sounds pretty good! And I almost lost an earring last week but someone behind me saw it fall! I love nice people.

    Good luck on the move. From what pictures you have showed so far it looks great!

    If it has tahini in it, it is most definitely hummus. Chickpeas do not a hummus make. 😉 what did you score at the sale?

    • Shelly November 9, 2012, 10:43 am

      Yes! I just bought some very delicious black bean hummus

    Dinner numero uno looks rather delicious! Good luck with the clinic moving!

    Yum the tempeh looks perfect! I just had some for dinner. I always forget about it. Now I have to try it with your “bean dip”

  • Kris November 8, 2012, 10:31 pm

    I make a similar white bean dip frequently. I add a little lemon juice for more tang, and some rosemary. Basil works great too. And a little grind of fresh black pepper. Yum!

    Sun dried tomatoes make everything taste glorious 🙂

    That dip sounds like a DREAM. Can’t wait to make!

    I love bean dips!! Especially when smeared on a sandwich like this. Yum! 😀

  • Emily November 9, 2012, 7:49 am

    That dip looks ah-maaaazzzzing!

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed November 9, 2012, 8:23 am

    Good luck with the move!

    I like that you are using sun dried tomatoes! I love their taste.
    And about the earring….I also hate it when it happens…

  • M.C. November 9, 2012, 9:46 am

  • Ashlee November 9, 2012, 12:00 pm

    Mmm that bean dip! Is your tempeh plain? I love the smokey maple flavor by Turtle Island Foods. Its delicious

    • Caitlin November 9, 2012, 12:04 pm
