I Scream, You Scream,

We all scream for . . . Hummus!
Hummus is pretty much a staple around here, and now that I've figured out how to make it using dried chickpeas rather than canned, it's pretty cheap for us to make and a very healthy snacking option (for our recipe, click here).  We do have trouble around here finding Tahini paste, a key ingredient, though.  Kroger used to carry it, but since their latest rearrange, I haven't been able to find it in there.  I ran into a former student/Walmart stocker and after chatting him up about his new baby (yes, this makes me feel old), I asked him if they carry Tahini paste.  I believe his response was "Ta-Huh?"  You know, it's used to make hummus, I told him.  "To make what?"   Uggghhh.

Anyway, this hummus had been in the fridge just a little too long, so I decided to see whether the backyard crew would like it as much as the indoor crew does.  Chickens and canine were both fans.  The chickens really made a mess of it, pecking and flinging it everywhere!

Does anyone local buy Tahini paste?  If so, where are you able to find it?
