Cashew Hummus
I went to No Doubt last night.  We took the kids.  It didn't quite turn out like I pictured it in my head!  I envisioned my husband, myself, and my 2 older kids dancing, singing and having a blast.  What I got instead were two very bored children.  It turns of No Doubt was kind of like Fiddler On the Roof was to me.  The kids just stood there, and eventually standing led to sitting.  Even when Gwen Stefani asked all the audience to get up and jump while she rocked out my kids wanted no part of it. I even nudged my teen to jump with me, and he shot me a look like stop embarrassing me!  I would say it was a generational thing, but it wasn't just an age difference.  My son saw one of his friends from school. A girl.  She said No Doubt was one of her most favorite groups.  I guess the moral of the story is either:
"A" Don't push your likes on to your kids,
"B" Accept that embarrassing your kids is occasionally part of parenting.
"C" We should have just gotten a babysitter for all the kids. 

When I was looking through Crazy Sexy Kitchen taking a look at what I had made I realized I hadn't made many lunches.  In fact, yesterday was the first lunch item I had made.  Today I made another lunch recipe.  If yesterday was devoted to kids and their tastes, then today was all about the grown ups.  I started by making a Cashew Hummus.  This was to die for. The red pepper gave it the perfect amount of kick.  I could have sat with a large bowl of this hummus and eaten the whole thing,  making sure to lick the spoon and the sides of the bowl.  Here is what I used so you can lick the bowl too.
I  stopped myself from eating all the hummus and created Hummus Pinwheels.  I am just going to warn you that you are going to want more than one of these.  So make a few pinwheels.  Here is what you will need.
Then put it together like this:
This is one my most favorite things I have made from CSK.  It was absolutely awesome.

I hope you like it as much as I did!
