Anyone that knows me is aware of my love of nachos.  I can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  One of the girls at work was saying that she has been making a healthier snack of the week and one of the snacks she made was hummus.  I’ve always liked hummus, so I thought I’d try making some myself as a substitute for nachos.  I am NOT a cook, so I was a little nervous about making this, but it really is a matter of throwing everything in a blender and pushing start.  It was SO easy!  I recommend this as a healthier alternative to chips and cheese!

2 cans of chick peas (19 oz.) 90% drained
Juice of 1 lemon
7 Roasted garlic cloves plus 1 fresh clove of garlic
7.5 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp tahini paste
1 tsp salt or garlic salt
**Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

It makes A LOT, so be prepared to feed an army!



I’ve never been to watch Rugby before.  My friends’ son just joined a new rugby team and was in Austin for a game.  They played at Burr Field, which evidently hosts an Austin Rugby team.  It was lots of fun.  I am going to have to look up the schedule for the Austin team and head out there to watch some time.
