It’s amazing how much summer has blossomed since we left seven days ago! It’s been muggy hot and sweaty in this house! The unpacking is complete (you would not believe how smelly 7 days of workout clothes – some of them having been worn 3+ times – gets in a suitcase!), 3 loads of laundry complete, sheets and towels changed on the bed, dead bugs in corners vacuumed up and emails all caught up. Whew! Oh, and grocery shopping!
We walked to the grocery store (about 30 minutes round trip) to fill our empty fridge. In honor of summertime, tonight’s menu was entirely grilled.
Veggie, Lemon Hummus + Blue Cheese Grilled Pitas
I made a simple batch of hummus by blending together the following:
- 1 can chickpeas, drained
- The juice of 2 big lemons (the lemonyier my hummus, the better)
- ~3 tbsp chickpea can juice
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Dash Tabasco
We stuffed the pitas with the hummus, plus some blue cheese crumbles and grilled them, and then they were stuffed with the veggies.
Pita Info for those of you who are interested. We never get pitas or tortillas anymore because of The Baker so since we have no bread in the house I was allowed to get them!
They are not 100% whole wheat, but they are fluffy and stuffy
Grilled corn – a summertime favorite
And not to forget the watermelon for dessert!
We went outside to eat and within 10 seconds had mosquitoes swarming us
So we relocated inside the screen door
Thank you all for your kind words about Matt’s Grampa
I have TONS of blog reading to do and a new book to start. Of to tire my eyes!
