A day for Hummus.

Y’all…perfect timing.

Today is National Hummus Day.

Yes, there is a day to celebrate hummus.

As there should be.

Yesterday after work I was craving snack but had absolutely nothing snack-worthy in my pantry or fridge.

That is, if you want to call a half-eaten chocolate bar and a handful of baby carrots a snack.

Nope, not me.

Scout’s honor…I had no idea that we celebrate hummus today.

This is what I like to call Guacamole Hummus.

Because sometimes people of Mediterranean and Mexican cultures like to have babies…together.
