I've never had Cannolis before, nope. But I did a search on them, and they are a sort of wrapped dessert? Well the pictures they look like a great dessert, am I wrong?
I love Hummus too, can't stop eating it when we have some.
Yeah I wish I made it home made more often, but many times I'm buying it.
And its healthier than alot of other snacks.
I have a funny story about Hummus. Probably 1975 my sister in laws boyfriend was from the Iran and identified himself as Persian, so they wanted to double date with Mrs. G2 and me out to a Persian Restraunt in Pasadena, on the Rose Parade route. Never been their before and Harry told the waiter secretly, not to forget a custom they did in those days. I had never eaten Hummus before and also never eaten Pita bread before. What I didn't know was that the custom (not done in todays restraunts) was for the waiter to tear off a piece of bread, take a dip into the hummus, and before I knew it,he shoves it into my mouth with his fingers. One of those welcome to our culture kind of things. I was so flabbergasted an surprized, my jaw probably dropped to my knees and the bread was in my mouth, which Harry and my sister in law were dying laughing.
Oh no.... I would have been laughing uncontrollably just the same!!!
Thats hilarious, and I had no idea that that is some type of custom. Is it just an old custom within the restraunt world, or did people just do this alot when it was someones first time having hummus? I dunno, but I could just picture you sitting there not having any clue this guy is about to shove food in your mouth with MRSG2 sitting next to you- If she didn't have any idea he was going to do that I imagine she was close to just as surprised.
It was all really fun, and was long before all this terrorism stuff. AS it turned out later Harry was a complete nutjob, abusive to my sister in law, and for other reasons ended up in prison. Probably deported after that.
Thats too bad, but good she got out of it.
