We're On Island Time!

Fridays are the best! So much hope and excitement for the weekend! Last Friday immediately after work I worked up a good sweat weeding and mowing. Phil brought home rum for my favorite MOJITOS! We set up shop on the deck and enjoyed the weather.

Phil set up his new bbq(from my parents) and we had a nice little pork chop din din. Phil LOVES cooking meat. The bbq has a rotisserie. He's been talking about cooking meat for over a week!

We filled up on bread so I maybe only had one bite of my chop. I was experimenting with bread dips.

I LOVE my food processor! How did i live without it for 2 years?! Throw anything in it and make any dip!
Dip A)
White Port Roasted Red Pepper Puree

sate together then throw in the food processor
White Port
roasted red peppers

Dip B)
Baked Jalepeno Romano Hummus

process all together until smooth
olive oil
lemon juice
pickled artichokes
romano cheese
bake until melty

Food Processors Are Fun!

I made some traditional hummus last night. One can of chickpeas is $1 it is waaay cheaper to make homemade hummus and tastier! I've got a lot. come over and eat some.

Also last night I got ingredients chopped up and ready for taco salads for lunch all week, including homemade pinto beans. I made some healthy yummy dressing in the food processor.

My dressing:
fat free sour cream
garlic clove

just blend the heck out of on high

so flavorful and fresh and creamy.


Oh yeah, Phil gave himself a nice buzz cut on his own.

I'm thinking that's a large pitcher of mojitos for two people...?!
Recipes look good; of course you don't use measurements like those of us who aren't as adept in the kitchen. Maybe I'll get brave and try one! Thanks for sharing,Jenna:-)

This is not the first time you've referenced Mojito's:) I've never had one...how do you make them??? (By the way, I saw Phil last weekend and he gave me the "go ahead" to post comments!) oh, and this is Tommy's sister, Traci...in case you don't remember me:)
