Now we are a two-camp household on "the word"...first the HuH...Muss group and then the HUGH...Muss group. Which way do you swing...or which other way :D ?

accent on the "hoo" :) they have two recordings you can click and listen to.

Welcome back! :)

I was just explaining to my girlfriend recently what hummus was. I have a can of chickpeas in the pantry. Maybe this is a sign I should buy some pita bread and make some up tonight.

Thanks, Wanderer. We have all sorts of combos in the supermarkets here...with tomato and olive, olive, jalapeno peppers, lemon and coriander, caramelised onion, moroccan, etc etc. Quite an industry...But homemade's still best ;-)
