Hey, I look all better now....just got back from grocery shopping at Aldis and had two women flirt with me. So what that one was legally blind and shopping with a guide dog.....I had on some great cologne, and she noticed it.
The other one.......well, she made me look great in that shot I posted. She was a little overweight...by about 150# .......and she needed some cologne....a lot of cologne!

Stocked up on that Clancy's cheese dip and some new kind of cheese dip that is spicy. Haven't bought groceries in two weeks so I had the little TT full of sacks.

I bought some hummus....anyone eat that stuff? I never have but this looked good with the red peppers, so I tried it. Not bad, I haven't eaten today, so it is now all gone...not bad at all! Sort of bland and not sweet or salty...but the peppers are good and tasty.

I always thought hummus was for "preppy" types and sissies.......I could be wrong....it happens...I guess?

Regards!

Keep the beard it suits you. As for getting whacked by a brush, if I'm not getting a thump regularly I feel unloved! And yes, you deserved it!

Aw man, leave him alone. At his age he has a nice mane. Many men years younger would kill to have that much hair.

What Jim needs is a comb.

. . . . . . . .


. . . . . . . . . . . . .


And ditch the Don Johnson Miami Vice look.

Grow a mustache, Van Dyk, or a beard, or make a date with a razor and a fresh mug of soap suds.

Actually, with that hair, a nice big set of mutton chops would make Ol' Jim look like one of those Country Western singers from the early 70's. Set him onstage with a guitar, microphone and Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn or Dolly Parton and he'd look right at home.

We make our own. Get a mess of chickpeas, grind 'em up in the food processor (kind of a fancy blender I think), and add some seasonings.

Garlic is good.

Tahini a must.

Olive oil.

Lemon juice. Fresh squeezed.

Some onion. Maybe.

Paprika.

Chop it all up until everything is about as smooth as one of those chocolate malts they used to serve at the soda fountain or lunch counter in the variety store downtown.

Remember those?

Like a Woolworths or a Sprouse Reitz or a Rexall Drug Store maybe.

Anyway, ya gotta get the consistency just so, the flavors are usually subtle, so it can enhance whatever you might like to drag through it or spread it on. Chips. Crackers. Tortillas fresh off the grill. Sliced then toasted baugette with garlic butter on it . . . . . and perhaps a slice of Tillamook sharp cheddar . . .

And it doesn't end there.

Use edamame in place of the chickpeas. And add in some cilantro. Different. Tasty. And so long as women and sissies ain't eatin' any, toss in some cumin, cayenne and chili powders.

Mmmmmmm . . . . . . . . mmmm!!!!

Or garbanzos. With peanut butter, tofu, lemon and garlic.

Spicy sweet roasted red pepper hummus. Sweet and hot!

Sun dried tomato hummus.

Jalapeno hummus.

I dunno. Just be creative, right?

No end to what you can do with a sack of chickpeas and some imagination.

And they're good for ya.

Yes sir.

Just to get some flavor into something with basically no flavor?
Does anyone do this to grits, polenta, or cream of wheat?
A Spam and Velveeta sandwich is quicker and the kitchen stays clean.
Maybe throw some chick peas on it if you want to healthy it up a bit.

Nope ...not me! Because I don't eat any of those, they are like eating Pablum, and I gave up Pablum over 70 years ago.

That's what Otis calls....


(Save this Award...it has a cash/prize value from Otis......We don't know what it is yet, but Otis is loaded in $$, and says it will be fantastic.....and not a box of blind orphan squirrels) Sometime in 2016 the person with the most Otis Awards will have a big smile on their face!.......so says Otis?

Racer, thanks a ton for all that info on hummus.....I never knew much about it, and always avoided it. Even yesterday, I stuck it down in the bottom of my cart under my Aldi $2.89 bottles of wine and 6 bags of chips so no one would think I was a sissy. It's good to know that I can now buy it and if anyone looks at me funny, I can ask......"you ain't callin' Racer a sissy, are you?" "He won't like that."

When I get a chance, I'll try my hand at making my own hummus...a little of this would assure I don't have to share with Mrs Rupert!


Regards!

The bog stays clean, too.

At least for a few days.

No, not that at all, they are offsetting, even steven, clear skies and smooth sailing.

No thanks

But you forgot to mention that your "smooth sailing" won't be smooth unless you wash down your Velveeta with this stuff:

We V&S eaters have highly developed digestive systems, we use straight sulfuric acid when the need arises...which is very seldom. We can eat anything!

If desired, we could even eat lewdfish if properly prepared......this might do it....but it would still be risky. Not much chance it would ever be a desired meal, so we don't worry about it....but you guys should!
