Thai Peanut Butter Hummus

Hi Everyone and Happy Saturday!

I’m writing this post in advance because I know I will not be in the mood to write this Friday night after my Christmas party.  I have a feeling I’ll be sleeping in today and enjoying my nice cozy bed!

Today I have for you one addicting Hummus!  It’s my Peanut Butter Hummus!  After I made peanut sauce a few months ago, I thought, I bet this would be good in hummus form!  Yup, it is!!  This is such a wonderful, creamy, slightly spicy hummus that has a slight taste of peanut butter!  It’s so good and tasty with pita chips and veggies!!

This hummus is not only good  with veggies it is amazing in a wrap with sliced cabbage, thin strips of carrots, jicama, and some chicken or shrimp.  Oh baby!!  The Hummus is made with garbanzo/chickapeas, rice vinegar, soy sauce, a pinch of sugar, chili flakes and of course peanut butter!   It’s so easy to whip together, perfect for a holiday party or a leisure Saturday with some healthy snacking.  I’m really, really, really trying to stay away from cookies!  You don’t even want to know how many I consumed this week!  I am officially going to try to stay cookie clean until Christmas!  I wonder if I can do it?  ha ha probably not!!

Lets talk Christmas!!  Can you believe it is 17 days away?  I get paid twice a month and I only have one more paycheck till Christmas!  Ugh!  I am not prepared!!  I tell myself every year in July that I will start putting money away towards Christmas and the next thing you know December is here and I didn’t save a dime!  Story of my life!

So tell me what do you have on your Christmas wish list this year?   I want is a refrigerator.  A pretty one I saw at Home Depot.  It’s an LG, stainless steel, 2 drawer bottom freezer and it’s just so shiny!  Of course a matching set like an oven and dishwasher would have to come next!  Maybe a kitchen remodel   Ok, I’m going overboard now, but it’s Christmas time and I can dream!!  The other big thing I want are the new 10 piece pots and pans set from Williams and Sonoma!  They are GORGEOUS!!!  Not only are they pretty, but in all honesty I really do need a new set of pots and pans.  Mine are standing on there last leg!

Of course I want small things to, not just big things.  In all fairness, you know what would make me happy? A big family gathering!  My family lives out of state and I would love it if one year we could all get together and have a traditional family holiday!  That would be so much fun!  Maybe next year?

So did you do any Christmas shopping?  I got a few gifts, but not to many.  I need to make a list, because I tend to buy things here and there and either I end up buying way to much or not enough.  So this weekend, I’m going to write it all out on paper and start shopping.  I’m normally done by now, but I just don’t know what to get anyone. No one tells me!  Ask me, I’ll tell ya what I want.  lol

Well that’s it for this edition of my gibberish!

Have a great weekend!!

Toodles,

Jennifer

P.S.  One last thing:  QUESTION:  As a kid was there a Christmas gift you always wanted but never got?  For me I wanted the Barbie Dream House and instead I got the Barbie Town House!  Yah, that was nice, but not the same as the beautiful pink dream house!
