Homemade Hummus and Pita Chips

Hummus & Pita Chips
Leigha made this from scratch. After soaking the chickpeas overnight, into the food processor they went with salt, pepper, olive oil and a green pepper that she had roasted. Then I altered it.

Petra Falafal House

Falafel with cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce, and tahini. The homemade pickles were a nice surprise. Their acidity really brought the whole sandwich together. It was really good.

Texas Roadhouse

Pulled Pork Sandwich
& Sweet Potato

House Marinated Ribeye

Mesa Pizza

Barbeque Bacon Cheddarburger and Pepperoni Sausage
At first, I thought that it was pepperoni and gyro meat. It was still amazing.

Don't Buy Groceries For A Month

Several years ago, Leigha read an article that talked about various ways to save money. One of them said not to go grocery shopping for an entire month. It was something that we had considered doing for quite a while but for whatever reason, never did. January 2010 was just the month. We also decided to pair this with not going out to eat.
