    It's Friday!  Time for a Costco trip.  I always buy 10 times more than need at that place.

        Happy Friday!  I haven't got anything done today that I planned to do.  Oh well.

         

        Happy Birthday Heather!

         

        Just a note about hummus:  If you tend to get the "tummy music" from beans, then some Beano with that hummus is a good idea.

          That's a good side effect Mike.  Better out than in, Shrek was right.

           

          Got the appraisal back for the house, no problems.  In fact, it appraised about $30,000 higher than the county has it valued at.  I'm ok with that.  The county doesn't see the report anyhow, but it's a nice feeling knowing your house is worth more than you thought.  Wish I could sell it and downsize.  Ha.

            Interesting.  Over here, the appraiser's office value is very low compared to market value.  If I see it I would freak out.

             

            But good news!

             

            I do hummus with chickpeas so it does not give me any weird stomach bean issues.  Beans is a staple in our cuisine so I would be cured of those effects, Right?

              Chickpeas are garbanzo beans.  Once your body gets used to legumes it's usually not a problem.

                  I know but I have never had stomach issues from them but I've had with some beans.

                    There are ways to reduce the starch, mainly by washing the beans if canned, and soaking beans if not.  Removing the husks helps a little too, and will make a slightly more creamy hummus too.

                          Yuck.  I like mine chunky, which is why I like garbanzos better.  Which is weird because I used to hate arroz con garbanzos.

                            We made chocolate cake batter hummus tonight.  It's a slightly weird taste, but still really good on a graham cracker!  The mind is easy to trick sometimes, even while it's procesisng the combination of beans and chocolate and tahini.  Smile

                              Mind if I join you?  I must have been drawn to this thread from all the hummus talk. Smile

                              Do you even run?

                                Hey Kay, welcome to the party.
