Thank you so much everybody for your kind and comforting words. I was sure you would know what I was taking about and what I was feeling. It is everywhere, isn't it ? They have now moved their equipment farther down the street and are working behind the houses there. We can no longer see them, hear them or physically feel them when inside the house. We will go and see the results first chance we get.
Did any of you notice that I had wished you a Happy 2006 ? Please know that although I wish 2006 was a great year for you, my wishes are now for 2007 and I hope it’s an even better year ! LOL
Today, I will pass on a recipe I found on the net somewhere while looking for something else entirely. I had to immediately try it because I love chickpeas and almost anything lemon flavored. I thought it was only ok at the time and so I added more stuff to it and it still might change in the future. If you make it and change it for the better, please do share !
But I find it pretty good when you are looking for an out of the ordinary humus and I loved the pita sandwich I made with it.
“To Your Taste” Lemony Chickpea Hummus
Re-imagined by Gaia from Rosie Schwartz’ recipe found on Dr. Weil’s website (although I didn’t find it there :p)
• 1 garlic clove
• 3 Tbsp of lemon juice (or more, to taste)
• 2 to 3 rounded Tbsp of Vegenaise (depending on desired texture, dip or filling)
• 2 Tbsp of fresh parsley (or more, to taste)
• ½ rounded tsp of rosemary
• 19 oz cooked chickpeas, rinced and drained
• 1 tsp of Umeboshi Plum vinegar
• salt and pepper
Blend all ingredients in a food processor with metal blade attachment. Adjust vegenaise to taste.
Adjust everything, to taste. :p
Changing subject, have you noticed a weird smell and taste to red bell peppers lately ? I swear the one I bought at 4.99$ CAN/pound this week tasted like moth balls. No kidding !
And they usually smell horrible right there in the store. This time it started smelling bad when it got here or else I would have kept my money. I just hate having to through away food and even more when I paid top dollar for it. And I hate to not have red pepper around but what else am I going to do ? Eat Moth Balls Peppers ? I think not !
Anyway, I’d love to have your input on this. Is this just a problem in Quebec ??
