Mother's Day ~ Funny Video ~ Jimmy P ~ Edamame/Cilantro Hummus

Good 39º very foggy morning!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there.

I so miss mine and wish she had gotten to know her grandchildren's children! Here is my Mom with Kristen.....

.....and holding Brian......

And my Mom's Mother.... Isabell ... we called her Nanno.

Thank you to my daughter Kristen for being a super loving good mom to Alex and Jack and to my daughter-in-law Jen for being a super loving good mom to Tucker and Sami.

I was going to go to Tucker's baseball game yesterday but the continual rain made it sound like the game wasn't going to happen. Well it finally stopped raining and by the time Brian let me know the game was on I had involved myself into projects here. B sent this picture of Tucker in his new catcher's gear...

The sky lightened up here too and it was pretty...

This came from my friend Trish (another super good loving mom and grandma!) So funny~

Yesterday was exciting. Rain rain and more rain. Instead I did laundry, vacuumed, and made that edamame/cilantro hummus I had posted on my blog May 7th.

The tahini after sitting, it separates, so I had to put it in the little processor to smooth it out...

After putting all the ingredients in the food processor and tasting it... it was really flat. I added in a can of chickpeas, more cumin, more cayenne pepper, and more lemon juice. Healthy but it really didn't flip my skirt.

I ate it with celery.

Personally I like the regular hummus I make with chickpeas (I buy the dried ones and cook them). I can see adding some edamame to that for a little green boost, but will not be making this again. YES, very healthy, but boring!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Mom's Day. Ciao.
