I genuinely think I might be aging pre-maturely. Basically I’m the female Jack. Anyone else remember that movie? This post solidified my belief that I am aging and my memory is going. Let’s recap…

I tried a great pistachio hummus at a restaurant in NYC but myself and my friends agreed it could be better. So I made it my mission to recreate it at home. I went and picked up the ingredients, asked you guys on Facebook what you like with hummus, made the dish, photographed it and even wrote the post. Then as I was reading over the post it hit me, we were at a Mexican restaurant, why in the world would they be serving hummus?

Only then did it occur to me that we tried pistachio guacamole and not pistachio hummus…whomp whomp.

Pistachio HummusMore proof that I am aging:

-I consistently complain that some body part is hurting me.

-I am up all night. Does it make sense that I associate old age with insomnia?

-I get excited when parties call for an early start time so I can get to bed earlier (not that I sleep…)

-I watch The Good Wife…such a Mom show.

-Hot flashes. Enough said.

Pistachio Hummus 2The list could go on, but until I’m in a diaper I’m still in the clear, right? Well if my premature aging results in pistachio hummus instead of pistachio guac, then I guess things ain’t so bad. The day I start posting ground beef oatmeal is probably when you should seek some help for me. Until then, enjoy the hummus!

  1. Love pistachios! Yum yum. Made this but couldn’t help but sneak in a little tahini! Needed a little more water d/t this. Can’t wait to try with some veggies/corn chips/wrap. Did lick the spatula……heehee. Awesomeness.

  2. Yup, I am every bit as forgetful as you are! I hope I never try to make that ground beef oatmeal though eeeek 🙁
    This hummus looks incredible and I love the color! x
