On Sunday, the last day of the holidays, we spent a fairly relaxing day at home with lots of reading, drawing and DVD watching.
By around 3pm, the calls of 'I'm hungry' started and 'There's plenty of fruit in the basket' just didn't cut it. Something a little more substantial was needed. With chickpeas and tahini in the cupboard, the decision was a bit of a not brainer. Hummus.
I had also come across a great Hugh (sigh) flat bread recipe via Mean Mother Cooker and was keen to give it a go. So easy and fabulously delicious. This recipe has also come in really handy this week for making lunches as an early morning batch can make its way into lunchboxes before anyone can say 'We're out of bread'. It is amazing to think that this entire batch cost probably less than 50c whereas a pack from the supermarket can be between $3 and $4.
The circles of bread were each cut into 8 pizza style triangles and topped with dip. Yum.
I am now on the hunt for more non-cake afternoon tea ideas. Any ideas?
