Game Night!

My kids have been really into games lately (mostly cards but any board game will do).   After spending most of the day running around and snacking, a big supper would not have gone over well, so we had a snacking kind of meal while we played many (many) games!  Homemade pitas, roasted red pepper hummus, raw veggies, black bean dip, artichoke and spinach dip and chips.  It was as delicious as it sounds :)

Black Bean Dip

1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
4 cloves of minced garlic
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
 2 tbsp olive oil
juice from 1 lemon

*Add all ingredients to food processor and pulse until you've reached desired consistency
*Chill before eating

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus 

 3 red peppers, roasted and blended
2 cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
4 cloves of minced garlic
1/3 cup tahini
2 tbsp olive oil
juice from 1 lemon
salt and pepper

*Pulse all ingredients together several times in a food processor
*Chill before eating

Pitas!  from Leora

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1 1/2 tsp yeast
1+ tbsp olive oil

*Combine water and yeast and set aside for a few minutes
*In a large bowl mix together flour and salt, add yeast mixture and oil, mix well.
*Knead for several minutes on a lightly floured counter top
*Place in well oiled bowl, cover and let rise for 2 hours
*Divide into 10 pieces
*Flatten each piece into a disk and roll quite flat
