Appetizer: Hummus in Cucumber Cups
At my home, the calendar is the boss. If an event or appointment doesn't go onto the calendar, it doesn't exist, at least to me, or until someone calls me up and asks "where the heck are you?". This has happened, unfortunately, one too many times. Sigh. I'm a slave to that dang calendar.
It was a Saturday and I knew we were visiting friends that evening. An hour before we are to leave, I walk past the calendar and noticed a "Bring Appetizer" note. Damn! I knew my fridge was low in terms of content too. Double damn!
"We'll just stop by the grocery store on the way there" my hubby says.
"No, I don't want a store-bought appetizer."
A small container of homemade hummus but nope, no pita chips. Carrots, ketchup, eggs, cucumbers.
Hummus in Cucumber Cups
long english cucumber
cilantro or parsley or sprig of dill
Using a carrot peeler, peel strips off the outer skin of the cucumber to give a design or leave as is.
Cut the cucumber into 1 inch or 1.5 inch sections. Scoop out and discard half of the insides, creating a cup.
Scoop prepared hummus into each cup and sprinkle with your choice of garnish. Serve.
