Today I Made Homemade Pita Chips.....and Ate A LOT of Them Too.

Seriously.  I'm sitting here crunching on them while I type.  The bad part?  I just got back from a dip party where I stuffed my chops.  And previous to that party?  Tony took us girls out for Subway to celebrate getting his Associates.  Give a big cheer for Tony!  WOOHOO!!!!!  It's been a long time coming. 

So - I'm basically growing a snout and a pink, curly tail at this moment.  I've been doing some hard-core pigging out tonight.  And I'm still planning on eating M&Ms and snuggling with the hubby while watching a movie tonight.  **groan**

If you want the recipe for the pita chips it's here.  And I did make the hummus too, but 1/4 cup of lemon juice is waaaaay too much bitter.  So, I wasn't thrilled with it.  Probably would've been fine otherwise. 

I should've taken pictures at the dip party.  So much variety - it was awesome.  And they had a chocolate fountain!  Yep.  Died and went to heaven for a little bit there.  Pound cake in chocolate sauce is the bomb. 

Here's the pic I snapped of my offerings on the way to the party.  Lame pic, I know.  But, it you like pita chips and making your own food, do this.  I, for one, will never buy pita chips ever again.  Ever.  These are too easy and way yummier than any bagged chips I've had.  I used whole wheat pita bread so these are healthy!  And don't use cookie cutters like the recipes says.  Please.  That is a waste of time and pita bread. Truly.  I think some people try to make things all different and cutesy when simple, easy, & conservative is just a million times better. 

Ok.  Gotta go.  Tony is waiting for me to get the movie started.  We're trying out Limitless (with Clearplay, of course).  I have my doubts about it.
