David's Favorite Hummus

David said tonight's hummus was his favorite of any I've I'm going to TRY to remember how I made it. When one cooks 'off the cuff' like I do it's hard to duplicate anything exactly. But I think I can come close....

1 can garbanzo beans drained
2 large garlic cloves
4 TBS Yogurt
2 TBS Tahini
Juice from 1 lemon & lemon zest
Large handful Cilantro - leaves and tender stems only
About 2 TBS good Olive Oil
A few cranks of Sea Salt & Black Pepper

Process garbanzos, garlic & cilantro in the food processor until coursely chopped, then add all the rest and process until smooth. Add some additional olive oil on top if desired.

This cartoon sums up some of the hysteria behind immigration all too well! I particularly like the fence since I have such a lovely example of one to look at from our house in AZ.....

Another visit to our tiny friends in Warrenton Ga. They live in little horse paradise - about 80 acres of tree lined rolling grass pasture where they live an essentially wild existance. There are about 30 of them and they live in distinct herds - mares babies and stallions all coexisting. I made several pictures but most weren't that good - for once they were in close....too close and it was hard to get a good shot at them through the fence. Aren't they beautiful?
