As Andrew was scarfing down the last little bit of our Roasted Red Pepper Chipotle Hummus last night - I feebly protested (we just got it the day before and I only ate a little of it). I had veggies that needed hummus!!! He reminded me that we had white beans and I was capable of making my own. Oh, right. Home made bean dips.
So, today at lunch, while my beautiful mushrooms were staring at me saying "eat me, eat me with bean dip," I gave in. After a quick search on the blogosphere, I found a blogger who had made a Mark Bittman recipe, Rosemary-Lemon White Bean Dip, quickly and successfully! Plus, I had all the ingredients, sort of. The recipe calls for the zest of two lemons, but I only had one lemon, minus the zest. I figured I could just substitute lemon juice for the zest.
The recipe can be found here.
As I was dropping Andrew off at Temple Ambler this morning I noticed a tree out of the corner of my eye that was bursting with red. Cherries! I confirmed with my friend Grace that they were available for picking and came back in the afternoon. Randi and I picked what ended up picking a pound of pitted fruit and she made it into a delicious cake.
She didn't want to blog about a recipe she had already posted, but I had to give her props, because it was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.... good!!! Plus free fruit!!! Yay!!!
