This afternoon, I am hosting a fall mixer. I have been away most of the summer and I am finally able to catch up with friends and what better way to catch up, than with all of them at once. I am serving an array of fall themed food and hopefully I will be able to post some pics of the different offerings. But at the risk of photo blogging the mixer fails…I figured I would to share this recipe with the world and give you a preview of the day’s treats.
- 1 large can (28 oz) garbanzo beans (chick peas)
- ***save 1/4 cup of the chick pea water and add if you are having trouble blending your mixture!)
- 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
- the juice from 1 lemon
- 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground allspice
- salt and pepper to taste

On another note, I’m totally hooked on this blog: (Under The Hill), it is thought provoking, funny, heart breaking and informative. A genuine perspective on the government, the people of Canada and world issues. Please take a moment to check it out!
