Saturday Night Spread

You know those nights where you are starving, but you have no idea what you want and you don't want to mess with a restaurant and you really just don't know what to do?  When we have those nights, our solution is to run to the Fresh Market, but a bunch of yummys, open a bottle of red wine and feast.
Our lovely spread included Dubliner cheese, a smoked gouda, homemade quince paste (thanks sister!), dolmas, carrots, olives, sourdough, cinnamon almonds, grapes and homemade hummus.  This dinner is so great!  I certainly recommend it.

This dinner was also a success because I made the hummus and it was so freakin good and easy to make.  I don't think we'll ever go with the store bought stuff again.


1 can of chickpeas
juice of 1 lemon
1/3 c. tahini
1/4 c. olive oil (plus more for drizzling)
garlic (as much, or as little, as you like)
paprika and pine nuts for garnish

Dump the chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, olive oil and garlic in your food processor.  Blend until smooth. Garnish with paprika, pine nuts and olive oil.
