Early morning at the breakfast table


Forget that it tastes good, it's relatively healthy and low-fat, and the kids really like it. What's most important is that it has a neat surface when it's first opened.

Your turn: Are you a hummous person? How do you pronounce it?

Mmmm... Yum! I love [hum-mus] especially when it's got tons of garlic in it. Bring on the warm pita bread, also! Now I'm hungry!

I found Edimame hummous the other day, and it was really, really yummy, too!

Mmmmm Humous, never used to like it at all, the texture was always a bit odd to me, but I have acquired a taste for it over the last year or so :o)

HUM-ISS, rhymes with YUM-ISS!! I love it, especially the kind with lots of spices mixed in.

I love hummous. I used to be afraid to try it...but a friend brought some one day to a get together and I didn't know what it was. I tried it and THEN found out what it was.

I pronounce it "hum us"

Ms Mac said...

Yes, I love Hummous (pronounced Hummus)

If you can believe it, I have never bought it and eaten it at home though so have have never witnessed the wonder of its first opening!

Dunno how to say it, but I do like it... I worked as a nanny for a family that would make it from scratch... I am not that creative..

In my "office" days, we had the periodic food day where we'd have to bring in food to nibble on. In order to thwart the onset of my co-workers' office ass, I brought in some hummus and pita bread.

"How am I supposed to keep this figure with this stuff," complained a rather large cohort.

Funny, if it's not greasy, powdered/glazed or smothered in salsa, nobody reaches for it.

As far as the pronunciation, you could take the new age, multi-culturally senstive-authentic route and do a breathy, delicate 'clearing of the throat' sound with the "H." Or you can reach for the "NAH-tcho" cheese instead.

oh love hummous (who-muss) but not for breakfast, personally! I have been buying it with lemon and coriander in - mmmmm

Eeeewwwwww!

Stationery Queen said...

I'd have to eat it with my eyes closed. It looks like something my baby niece already ate. Ewwwww.

:-)

I love it. I use a "garlicky" version for bagels and dip. Mmm!

sxKitten said...

It is lovely stuff, isn't it? I'm a big fan, especially with warm pita bread. But for breakfast?

Beautiful photo....
No, I'm not a REAL Hunnis person...I rarely eat it, though when I do, I like it alright....
I pronounce it HUM-iss....!

kenju said...

Hum-Mus, and nooooooooo, I am not!

Plain Jane said...

Nope. No way. Icky. *heh*

Thumper said...

I am not the hummus-type person, but it looks like Cream of Wheat, and now I want some...! I think I'll make the Boy pancakes for dinner, and C.O.W for myself!

RC said...

No Carmi, I don't think I'm a hummous person, but my friend Nadia is pretty funny.

Leanne said...

mmmm hum-mus love it especially with fresh veggies!

Surcie said...

I also thought it was Cream of Wheat. Do you really eat it for breakfast?

I say "HUM-us." Love it!

Kath said...

My daughter and I love it....my husband and son won't touch it. We pronounce it Hum-Us. Never had it for breakfast, more of a snack in the afternoon or evening with raw veggies or pita or crackers. I imagine it would be a good breakfast choice though...lots of protein....getting past the garlic first thing in the morning might be tough though.

dena said...

I love it, and I pronouce it HUM-US, and sometimes more like HUM-ISS - it depends how quickly I say it.

Deana said...

I love Humm-us with pita points...really fresh its just the best.

The Cryer said...

I'm just glad you said what it was, because I was really concerned there was something wrong with your margarine.

I have never had it, but I pronounce it hum us.
