Last Saturday night while my sister was here, I had tickets to go and see one of my favorite bands of all time.
During the day Jill and I shopped, exercised, watched a movie and did all the awesome things that sisters (and mates!) usually do when they are together. We knew that later on, my friend Michelle would be coming over for a light dinner before heading out to Kentish Town for the gig.
For a light snack in the afternoon we decided to try our hand at making some hummus. I already had a can of chickpeas in the cupboard so all we needed was carrots and celery to dip in.
The recipe I used is here if you wanted to check it out. I sprinkled some more paprika and cayenne pepper on top for presentation.
- 1 can of chickpeas (drained, however if you want to omit the lemon juice, use some of the chickpea juice)
- 1 teaspoon of black peppercorns
- Paprika & cayenne pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 teaspoons of tahini (you can buy at any Whole Foods or Tesco)
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
Is is just me or does this make your mouth water as well?
Michelle asked me what I was wearing and I told her that we should be matching for the night. Yep. We did that on purpose! We both rocked boots, tights, denim cut offs, a T shirt and leather jackets. Snap! ;)
The gig was epic (as per usual). I had the best time ever. We sang, danced, jumped around, got hot and sweaty and enjoyed a few drinks. I think I might possibly have been the oldest person there, but you know what, I don't care. It was amazing and one of the best nights of the year ;)
What is your idea of a perfect Saturday night? Do you still dance around at gigs or are you more of a watcher from the sidelines?
