Happy Easter! It's been a while since I've posted. Tonight, I am hosting a holiday dinner for the first time. There will be 9 people attending-besides Joel and I, I am cooking for my parents, my brother, my in-laws, and my sister-in-law and her fiance. I am excited, but nervous at the same time. One of the 3 appetizers I am making is this white bean dip that I found on The Way the Cookie Crumbles. It sounded delicious, and I wanted something people can just casually snack on while waiting for dinner to be ready. To go along with this dip, I have crackers, bread, and baby carrots.

We didn't have any milk in the house the yesterday for me to have cereal for breakfast, so I had to get creative. I found this recipe on GreenLiteBites the other day and I just happened to have one spotty banana leftover so I used it. I ate this with a few graham crackers. I didn't have the Special Dark Cocoa, so I just used regular cocoa powder. I bet it would have been really good with the dark chocolate taste!!
The other night, we made our own falafel wraps for dinner. We cheated and bought a box mix where we only had to add water. Surprisingly, they were actually pretty decent. On the side of the box (Fantastic Foods brand, I think) there was a recipe for "cucumber yogurt sauce" which sounded an awful lot like tatziki to me. I made it for our wraps and it was good. I used the leftovers to eat with bagel chips as a snack.
We had Joel's family over for dinner last night and I wanted to have something to snack on before dinner was ready. I decided to make baba ghanoush, hummus, and tapenade (I used about 1.5 cups of olives that I got from the olive bar at Wegmans, so I used 2 cloves of garlic and eyeballed the amount of lemon juice and olive oil that I used).
