Day 143/365 - Leftovers for Days
Took a well-deserved break from my graphic design theme because I made 30 POUNDS of hummus last night. But fate proved useful that this was the prompt today.
Why would someone feel the need to make that much hummus? My younger three kids have Health Awareness week at school and today was "Try It Tuesday", where the kids get to try healthy snacks they may not know about. We thought a lot of kids would shy away from it, but we had to have enough in case they all want some.
What goes into that much hummus? It was 4 #10 cans of chick peas, most of an 8lb tub of tahini, almost a gallon of lemon juice, 1 cup of salt and 3 cups of cumin. And lots of patience to make it in the food processor about 1.5 pounds at a time.
And yes, there was probably 20 pounds left over. We'll be creative with spreading the wealth.
