Meatless Fridays

It's still the Christmas season for us Catholics and so we don't fast from meat on Fridays during this time. But I did find an interesting recipe that I want to try. I thought we'd take a trip to the Children's Museum and the Houston Zoo for little Danny's birthday and have a picnic at Hermann Park. This looked like a really good sandwich spread to take! We LOVE humus around here and so I think the kids would enjoy this stuffed inside pita bread (or stuffed inside a hollowed out tomato for me!) So this week we have a lunch idea! This week's Meatless Friday meal is:

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling
(courtesy of

1 (19 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
salt and pepper to taste

Drain and rinse chickpeas. Pour chickpeas into a medium size mixing bowl and mash with a fork. Mix in celery, onion, mayonnaise (to taste), lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper to taste.
