I admit it: in the past year I’ve made and played with this Paleo Hummus recipe many times and in that time I’ve always wondered if it was “hummus” or “humus”. I can tell you that it is definitely not “humus”, as its definition is “fully decomposed organic matter, sometimes used in gardening to improve the fertility of soil”. Now we know.
I got to catch up with a bunch of friends from school this weekend who I haven’t seen in a while. It’s come to my attention that almost everyone is married now. I think there are only 2 of us in the group who are single. That wedding thing is catching. And expensive. Last year I had 5 weddings to go to. I think 3 this year. There should be one big mass ceremony. Once a year. Or a wedding week. Kinda like graduation ceremonies at big universities, how different programs are scheduled for their ceremonies all within a couple days. Think about that week-long party! And all the people you’d meet! Now that would be the way to connect all the singles, no?
But it would never work. Brides need their day, right? I get it. But it’s cool. Gets everyone together for mini reunions. It’s weddings and funerals right? So obviously this is the more fun of the two. Hey, do you have a go-to wedding gift that you can suggest? I need help. Maybe a gallon-o-Paleo hummus (not humus. Unless they’re big into gardening).
Stay tuned: I will show you one of my favorite uses for this hummus. Next week.
What a tease. 😉
***Update: Favorite use: Hummus Omelette.
