Mediterranean Hummus Dip

Where WAS I this past week?

I know, I know, I'm a total slacker, and haven't blogged in a week. I'm having withdrawal. I hope you are too.

I was away for work and then made my way off to visit the lovely city that features these:

Yup. Those are the World's Largest Cowboy boots. And they're in San Antonio, TX.

Fun Fact: They are 40 feet tall and 35 feet wide. And I couldn't stop staring at them as I was driving by. Like, craning my neck backwards to watch them.

I was visiting my big sis who just moved semi-cross country to San Antonio.

And it was a blast.

We went to a wedding, which a) served Margaritas for FREE, and b) the guests stood up and broke out in applause when the bride came in??

So, it was basically what I imagine traveling to Mexico might be like, but with the Texas logo stamped on everything.

And mi amigo, let me tell you, it was quite the place. I can't wait to go back.  OR to break out into applause at the next wedding I am at, just to test it out.

So... this hummus has absolutely nothing to do with Texas.  Or mexican food. Or weddings.

But its delicious and you'll thank me for being random later. And you'll thank my mom for introducing me to this heavenly mediterranean dip. And then you will thank the plate after you lick it.

And as this is the week of thanks, and of being thankful, it may just be the perfect appetizer to kick off your Thanksgiving feast! {Look at me covering all my bases.} Yep. That's what happens when I'm gone for a week.

I promise I'll get my act together shortly.

Mediterranean Layered Hummus Dip

8 oz. Pine Nut or choice hummus
1 small vine ripe tomato, diced
6-8 Calamata olives in brine, diced
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup feta cheese crumbles.

Spread hummus evenly over a serving dish. In rings, add tomatoes, calamata olives, onions, and feta cheese.

*You can also add cucumbers, but I forgot.

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15
