A little hummus to weather the cold

I woke up countless times during the night. I'm pretty sure I have a cold. damnit. At 5:23, I decided it was just time to stay up, so I've been drinking tons of tea and watching Super Sweet Sixteen. When my mom woke up and went in my room, she freaked out. I was downstairs in the kitchen, but I had made my bed already. I hear her goin' "Jo!! Joanna!!!" and she comes downstairs all scared sayin' "I thought you had been kidnapped because I couldn't find you!" Oh mother.

Anywho, I did manage to make some hummus last night for dinner. I'm obsessed with the Sabra hummus, so I tried to clone it. It turned out really, really good, and I've eaten it with sundried tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, olives, and spinach. Uhh just heaven. I didn't have the actual container to use when I made this because I finished it all and forgot to save it. haha. So I honestly don't know what 's in it... I just tasted mine as I went along. And just a warning, it doesn't look like this hummus, but I don't care about looks haha. It makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Here's my recipe:

Sabra Hummus Clone

1/2 cup kidney beans
3/4 cup chickpeas
2 cloves fresh garlic
1 Tbsp Tahini
1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
4 Tbsp vegetable stock

Directions: Place all ingredients in food processor and blend!! Add more vegetable stock if you want to thin it out a little. I like mine thick because that's how the Sabra hummus is.

I go to school at SMU in Dallas. I love it, and the weather is really nice... well, most of the time.

Haha I actually looked at Cornell! It was a really nice school, but I didn't relish the idea of being there when it was freezing cold and the snow came over my head!

I know you said you're taking a gap year, but where did you go to school last year? I was a transfer student too. I went to Bryn Mawr my first year.

Get better soon. I love hummus also but the best hummus comes from Israel. It's just better there for some reason.
