Gig Night!

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?
