My girlfriend, Jenny, is away for the next month, and I hate grocery shopping by myself. So I decided (i.e., by default of my laziness) I’m going to eat everything in the house until there’s nothing left to eat. Only then will I make a trip to the grocery store, and when I do, I’ll stock up on everything.
Jenny’s been be away only a few days, and so far I haven’t had to eat anything too disgusting—which means I haven’t yet cracked into the soy milk and yogurt (I’m not a big fan of health food). But this afternoon when I was making a simple toasted bagel sandwich with cheese and tomato, I found a container of hummus in the fridge. Can’t say I’m a big fan of hummus either, mainly because “hummus” sounds too much like “pus.” (They really need to give it a better name.) But I was desperate, so I put a little of this hummus on my sandwich.
And here’s the reason I’m writing this post: It was the best bagel sandwich I’ve ever had, and it’s the hummus (hummus!) that made it so good. It’s called Summer Fresh 60-Pepper Hummus, and despite its name, it’s not at all spicy or hot. It’s simply delicious. I think I’m going to make another one as soon as I upload this post. So here it is…
—a lightly toasted non-enriched whole wheat bagel
—some sliced tomato
—butter and/or non-hydronated margarine
—some kind of lettuce
—some kind of cheese
—and 60-Pepper Hummus.
I’m not trying to push a product on you. Just sharing a good sandwich with you. You could probably get the same results with some kind of home-made hummus, but I don’t know anything about that. All I know is that this was one damn good sandwich, and dead easy to make.
