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.
