  1. Oh I bet that is awesome, can't wait to try it, thanks for sharing.

  2. My daughter will love this. She is into all the vegetarian stuff.
    We are finished with surgery for the day. Thanks for the kind thoughts. He's still in pain, but at least he is on pain meds for now.

  3. Hi Lisa
    I really love your blog. You always make me giggle. I will look out for Lisa and Gary mugs. Do you have Lisa and Gary bathrobes too?!! Just kidding.
    Enjoy your Yummuuss.

  4. I love black beans but I have never tried it this way before. Looks delicious and healthy!

  5. I love your humor and honesty! It makes me laugh. I would love for you to join me at Diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com for Crock Pot Wednesday. It's easy, fun and economical! Come on over and check it out.

  6. Hmmm... started reading your post as I sit here eating Stuft Chocolate Nutty Moose Tracks ice cream out of the carton, after telling myself all weekend I was gonna go on a diet. Maybe it's a sign. And not the kind that says "All You Can Eat, $9.95".

  7. I love black beans, and I love hummus! I'll be trying this for sure!

  8. "I call it the kitsch meets laziness look."

    LOL! Loved that comment, Lisa! :-) And if I'd known about the Gary and Lisa mugs, I would have bought you two for your birthday!

    Had a wild and crazy weekend. So wild and crazy in fact that we forgot that yesterday was our anniversary. We remembered after Mother Magpie called and reminded Mr. Magpie. LOL! We quickly bought gifts (I got roses, he got three adorable photographs of godchildren that are the cutest I've seen of them if I do say so myself), and we had a good evening. Both of us are exhausted from the weekend, but in a good way.

    Hope things are well with BG and the new school. Let me know when her birthday is so I can get her cupcakes! :-) Oh, and there is a new store in St. Augustine that sells cupcakes. I want to take you both there to celebrate her big day.


    Sheila :-)

  9. I ADORE Hummus AND black beans so I'm betting this is super yummy. And you are rockin' those paper plates! ;o)

  10. Oh come on girl, This Ozark farm chick thinks it would be a hoot and a holler to enter this fine setting in some tablescape contest. The hummus sounds delish, maybe tomorrow night. Ya'll have a wonderfully blessed evening!!!

  11. Hello Lisa,

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love your humor! I will definitely be back for more. I love black bean hummus and will try yours.

    ~ Tracy

  12. That sounds so easy. I need to do it! xoxo

  13. I buy black beans in bulk and I love hummus, so I am thrilled to get this recipe. Love the mugs... you know I am going to be on the lookout now! :)

  14. I have a comment by a Lisa Bradford and she asked a question but her account is set up so I can not e-mail her, so I am looking through my followers and contacting anyone named Lisa (I don't know if she is a follower or not). Are you Lisa Bradford?

  15. I have never tried hummus. I didn't even know what it was made from til I read your recipe just now. I'm not a bean-eater, so this one's probably not for me.

    I love your mug! We used to live in Carolina Beach! Right on the beach, as a matter of fact just after were married. I loved it there. Best place we ever lived, my husband's company paid for it too, which made it even better!

    Enjoy your hummus!
