Friday Firsts - Hummus

Friday Firsts
Happy Friday everybody! I can't believe we're already so far into September already. The nights are getting chilly, which is a little bittersweet. I hate to see the end of summer, but I love fall! It's my favorite season because I love Halloween and my birthday is of utmost importance!

My first for this week was making my own Hummus! I've eaten gallons of hummus before, but never any I've made myself from scratch.

It was actually really easy and I liked it better than the store version. Johnny said it could use a bit more flavor, so we'll try again next time.

I have two short announcements while I've got your attention!

First - I'm going to be competing in Foodbuzz's Project Food Blog. I know I have a few of you as great competitors. At the top of my sidebar on the right is my profile widget. Over the next few weeks (if I advance) I will be posting challenge posts and also directing you where to vote! I'm really excited and can't wait to see what we all come up with!

Second - My 2 year blogaversary is this Sunday, September 12th. Stop by for a surprise give away. I have no idea what it will be yet, but I know you guys will want to win anyways!

Now it's your turn to tell me about your first! To participate in Friday Firsts create a blog post featuring a "first" of yours. Next, link that blog post below and tell us about it! If you don't have a blog or a specific post to link to please tell us about your first in the comment section! Any and all participation is welcome!
