Tahini To Go



Signed up to bring an appetizer for a work luncheon. Wanted to bring cheese and sausage, but the sausage was not looking like it was going to be allowable for me. SO, I glanced over and saw some HUMMUS and realized I haven't had that in YEARS. So, I bought some bell peppers and there we go!
Sliced red, green, and yellow bell peppers with black olives and hummus! Sweet!
However, I did not have the courage to slice them in the food processor, since I'm not totally adept at that tool yet- and I was afraid to wind up with pepper confetti. Pepfetti. Not too easy to dip into hummus.
I'm drinking some chocolate milk and going to bed.
Mission accomplished.
Although, I must admit the hummus reminded me of the times I used to LOVE to eat wheat pita bread. I ate it as pocket sandwiches frequently, as well as cut them up into triangles and put olive oil and spices and baked them into wonderful pita chips. Oh well. At least I wasn't diagnosed until my 20s. I've had lots of fun foods over the years. Wheat free is just a challenge, not a sentence. It forces creativity!
