$20 says Rush Limbaugh will criticize him because hummus is what terrorists eat.

I don't think Limbaugh will insult food.

That fat idiot aside, I was actually going to state that I didn't see how delivering hummus could be considered a humanitarian act.

Hummus...(shudder)...

There is only one atrocity greater, and that is fruitcake.

I love hummus, but giving it to people with severe GERD is an act of aggression.

Hummus, like grits, rice, and many other fine foods, is merely a bland palate upon which the culinary artist should perform his seasoning creativity.

Hummus? WTF?

Agent Smiths Laugh, obviously you have never had good hummus. You should try the Sabra brand, available in most high end grocery stores.

I could eat a whole tub of the Garlic Pesto flavored hummus in one sitting.

There is no comparison between hummus and fruitcake. Like comparing a car to a lawnmower.

gregscott: Hummus, like grits, rice, and many other fine foods, is merely a bland palate upon which the culinary artist should perform his seasoning creativity.


I don't think many people know what hummus actually is - ground chickpeas. Every other element of hummus is added. Just like sushi...the word "sushi" has nothing to do with raw seafood - it means "vinegar-ed rice".

And IMHO I think this gesture is awesome. Some fresh product must be heaven to a horde of people consisting on (hopefully safe) water and boxed mac-n-cheese.

And remember - nobody has to eat this. I think people with GERD (to respond to another post) know what they should or shouldn't eat. Nobody is force-feeding anyone.

About a year ago I started making my own homemade salsa from scratch. Experimenting with various recipe combinations.

It has completely ruined store bought salsa for me. It all tastes like chunky ketchup now. :(

If you have to get it from the store, sure. Sabra with roasted garlic is the bomb.

I think he should try it in context: hummus with toasted pita, some grape leaves, maybe some gyro meat and a few chunks of feta, and then drink Ouzo until he blacks out.

Lol at all the snark so far, but let me be serious for a moment:

These people are your true heroes, motivated by the purest of hearts. They gave their balls a quick adjustment and just up and did it. No, it doesn't take balls to drive a truck. But it does take balls to help your fellow citizens when you're under no obligation.

Note to farkettes - I'm not suggesting that testicles are necessary for humanitarian aid. But I'm a dude and a Farker and as such I frequently reference my crotch.

I live in Dallas.

I can get anything here.

Salsa is actually kind of fun to make and experiment with. Our company had a salsa making contest awhile back and I took second place out of about 30 people.

Its very versatile. Mangoes will turn it yellowy brown, raw roma tomatoes will give it a completely different taste vs stewed tomatoes using a boiled tomato puree.


This is the secret though. One can of drained peaches and a small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. It should be mandatory in all salsa recipes.

Hummus? That is a great idea. New Jersey could use a few good laughs after what they have been through.

Sabra doesn't have enough tahini imo

Tahini is awesome. I had some excellent tahini with baba ganoush a few months ago.

I wonder if it would go well with taramousalta?

Crap, now I am hungry and may have to go to Fadis.

This, so much this, Sabra has several flavors that are just amazing, it was my introduction to hummus, and because of it I fell in love with the stuff.

Not only is the stuff tasty, but it's also nutritious. Good on them. I will bet it's a real bright spot to see some yummy hummus and salsa on the plate next to the usual bomb shelter food that the food banks get.
