Today I cooked a lot of things.
First, I made some hummus. Then I ate it all. Every time my recipe varies a bit, but usually I keep it simple. This time, I wanted it coarser so I left some whole chickpeas in it and I didn’t use as much liquid.

1 can chickpeas (15 oz)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons tahini
1/4 teaspoons salt (I used more but I think it was too salty)
That’s it. It isn’t unprecedented for me to eat a whole can of chickpeas at once. I feel slightly ill, but I think it is from the ginger chews and chocolate I ate, not the hummus. I think occasionally an instinctive need to supplement my minerals (iron, zinc, copper, magnesium, manganese, etc) prompts me to devour an entire can of chickpeas in one day. It made me very sleepy.
Other things I made today (but am too lazy to take pictures now)
– Quinoa pilaf with cranberries and toasted almonds from Supermarket Vegan
– Sell your soul pumpkin cookies from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar
– quinoa and red lentil porridge (this time with leftover squash from a week ago, leftover pumpkin from the cookies, coconut, and various spices)
I took a two-hour nap this afternoon with Sprocket. I intended it to be a 30-min nap. Related to the nap, I am too lazy to take photos of the various food things I concocted today. I miss Fox Town. I can’t believe I have been back a week. The weather was beautiful this afternoon, in a chilly, autumnal, windy sort of way. I did go to the grocery store, biking stiffly and slowly but not too painfully. I also finished reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I feel like I didn’t accomplish much today, but I guess if you factor in all the cooking and all the eating, it was a productive day.
A much larger Sprocket is taking a nap next to me, his belly in the air and his pawses curled. His chest floof is damp from his recent bath.
