A Cockroach and Some Hummus

I have made my first cockroach kill! These "little" buggers totally freak me out in the house, but somehow in the garage I found the courage to mash the nasty creature with a garbage can. (It was the first thing I could get my hands on.) I made so much noise in the process, that Bryan came out to make sure I was ok. He was quite surprised that I finally found the courage to kill a cockroach.

Today, we had a playdate with Jack's friend Spencer and his mom Cristy. Cristy and I were talking about Greek restaurants and I got a craving for hummus. So for lunch, we had humus with "dippers." It was so yummy! The recipe actually came from the King Arthur Four Whole Grain Baking cookbook:
In a food processor, combine:
1/4c. Tahini
1TBS lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
2-3 garlic cloves
1 can drained chick peas (reserve the juice)
Blend it until it's smooth then add in the chick pea juice until you get your desired consistency.

Lastly, here's a picture of the kiddos to make up for the nasty picture of the cockroach.

Stephanie..I didn't know where else to post this so that you would get the message. You asked if the Silhouette will be Mac compatible and the answer is...YES! The official announcement will come around the end of August (this month), but we currently have people Beta testing it right now and it is looking really good!
