Wednesdays Unplugged – Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Enjoy your Wednesday…I’m enjoying mine Unplugged, heading out of town for a surprise birthday celebration this evening so I won’t be cooking today. That happens on occasion. A couple months ago we decided to have a fun night for the grandkids and go to Chuck E. Cheese’s instead of having dinner at home. The kids had a great time, as did we all, but it was interesting how much I missed my day of cooking.


Today’s recipe is a favorite hummus, delicious with fresh-baked pita chips.
