Isn't betroot a delicious colour? Lots of beets at the farmers markets at the moment so I made this beetroot hummus for a tasty afternoon snack. I'm savouring time at home with Josh before I start my new teaching job next week and he is back into full-time study. For dipping I made some pita wedges which i think I was introduced to by my beautiful sister Cath. I look out for packets of pita bread on special (79c when they're getting near their used by date at Kitsilano Natural Foods) and I use my trusty scissors to cut the pitas into wedges. A sprinkling of extra v. olive oil, some chunky rock salt, a few minutes under the grill and they brown up beautifully.
Iced Tea is something I have wanted to try making for a while. (I've heard the commercially made brands can have as much sugar as soft drink!). I steeped 2 bags of Citrus infusion tea and stirred in some honey to sweeten it a little. Then I let it cool in the fridge and poured it over ice with some fresh lemon and mint to serve. Summer on the front steps.
