Kalamata Olive Hummus

Today has been extremely productive! My stats professor is out of town at a conference, so I got to watch a video lecture from home instead of going to campus for class! I made an early trip to the grocery store then came back home to start my productive day (cleaning, hw, laundry, etc.).

I got salad stuff for lunches and spent some time chopping veggies and making hummus to use as the dressing! Funny story about the hummus. So…I planned to use tahini in the hummus…but I found out it expired 1 month ago. Then…I planned to use fresh garlic…but it grew mold…(it was only 2 wks old!). Because of all of the unplanned product losses, I had to improvise!

Enter: Kalamata Olive Hummus

Ingredients

3/4 cup kalamata olives

2 cans drained chickpeas

water

garlic powder

Directions

Add chickpeas to your food processor or blender and add enough water to enable the mixture to blend. Once the consistency is smooth, add kalamata olives and blend until they are thoroughly mixed. Once this step is done, taste test to see if you want to add more olives for a stronger “olive” flavor. If not, add a few sprinkles of garlic powder (or 2 cloves of garlic) and blend well.

I had more pictures, but it looks like they didn’t all transfer to my digital file. I use my laptop (PC), not my Mac, to post to the bloggie because it has Window’s Live Writer…and if you’re a blogger you know that WLW is the bomb.com.

I’m off to read under my covers. Yeah yeah yeah….it’s 6:30pm…but I just put clean, warm sheets on my bed, so it’s necessary! Hopefully I’ll be able to drag myself out of bed later to finish laundry and make dinner.

Have a great night everyone!

Also….best of luck to my soror, Alpha Sigma Tau, tonight at Greek Sing!!! Smile
