An instant picnic at the park

The other day I decided to take the munchkins to the park after school it was getting close to the time to pick them up from school and kindy so what is a woman to do but to rustle up things from the pantry and who knew I felt like that cooking show where the chef stops you at the supermarket and invites himself to your house and cooks a 3 course meal out of a spud a carrot and mince meat, that was me I was the Mcgiver of the pantry a can of this a dash of that a lot of prayers and VOILA!!!!!!!!

I present you Iris's homemade Hummus 


600g canned chickpeas, drained, rinsed 
3 garlic cloves, crushed 
100ml olive oil 
2 tbs tahini paste
1 tsp ground cumin 
Juice of 1 lemon                                                                                                                                         

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until combined. Add some water and process again until quite smooth.

We had carrots, cucumbers and crackers, the boys loved it.

While at the park we met some friends we made new friends and before I knew it we were having an instant picnic

Enjoy!!!! as much as we did x0x0x
