I have to admit that I was thinking about not posting this recipe. I made this last week the day that I made three different recipes with my food processor, and it was still feeling like summer outside. Well now I am fully in fall mode (especially being in Portland now and the weather being slightly colder - Ill get there later), and this just isn't fulfilling my fall cravings. I also am not enjoying these pictures. The lighting was really bad when I took these pictures (you can see here why I got a late start on that day. Hope it makes you laugh!!!) And to be frank, I really feel like I have a lot to learn with food photography. Sometimes it makes me mad. If you have tips, please feel free to leave them here for me :)
BUT... I loved this recipe, and so did my family. I figured that fall cravings and bitter feeling toward food photography aside, I had to share this recipe with you guys. If you have any holiday get-togethers coming up and want a good homemade Hummus recipe, this is a great one for you. And it is also super simple, and not too many ingredients. You cant go wrong with this one!
So for the update... we are back up in Portland again! We live the life of crazy if you haven't noticed yet. We are dreaming of the day that we get to settle down and actually have a place to call our own. But for now, we will take the making money and not spending much. That's not such a bad deal either I suppose. Matt landed another short term job for a different company up in Portland, so I quit the job I had in Reno and came back up here to stay with my brother and sister-in-law again. We are hoping that this time will end up being longer, so we can actually settle, but we will leave that up in God's hands. He has taken pretty good care of us thus far. I know He will continue to :) I will keep you updated!
