    I made a big batch of hummus today and froze most of it. It's in that category of delicious mushy things that freeze well. Includes: cranberry relish, baba ganoush and guacamole. It's an easy thing to thaw out and add to falafel wraps or to use as a dip.

    It is not hard to make and a cheap source of protein.

    I hope you put enough garlic in it.

    There's a new-ish place up in Spokane called Kabob House that has this absolutely delicious chicken shawarma wrap that I am utterly nuts for. I get it on a pita, and ask them nicely to drizzle just a little bit of hummus on it (sometimes they charge me, sometimes they don't) because the flavor of the hummus really both complements and balances the spices in the chicken in an amazeballs way.

    Hummus is great! I love it in pita wraps too. Sometimes I'll get some chicken breast, cook that up, shred it along with a bit of salad, tzatziki and hummus and wrap it up in pita. Yes, it isn't a traditional gyro, but it's tasty.

    Possibly worse, as it's got that nasty glop-shit on top and the smell makes me want to bolt for an exit. Though the first and only time I've smelled it was more than a handful of years ago, so maybe they've changed their recipe or something. I doubt it.
    Not if it's deep fried in batter with chip shop chips and curry sauce.

    Like I said, I don't care much for tinned meat, but the last time I had any was years ago. So tastes can change.

    I've lost weight!!!! I was up to a size 36. I'm now down to a 28! Boo yaah! Just by eating a bit healthier!

    For example, I eat a little sammich for breakfast or a muffin, then for lunch healthy choice and a regular dinner. For snacks I've been trying to stick to fruits and nuts. I do cheat majorly, but it's not a diet. Still. It's fucking working!!!! I'm so fucking stoked. I am actually able to fit into fucking Walmart clothes!!!!

    When I got into the size 28 clothes and they actually fit nice, I did a literal happy dance. It's been more than ten fucking years since I was in a size 28.

    Sure, I'm still fat, no doubt about that, but I'm working on loosing it.

    The funny part? I didn't even start out with the idea of loosing weight. I just started eating more sensibly.
