Imagination Cracker

My husband and my little boy both love hummus.  If you aren't familiar with it, hummus is a spread made from chickpeas blended with other things like sesame seeds and garlic.  They love it.  Little J will also just eat the chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans) straight from the can.  Today he was doing just that for lunch when he decided that he would rather have hummus.  So I made a little batch for him and he said it wasn't very good (I don't make it as well as daddy, but in my defense, we were out of sesame seeds).  He ate some other things and then requested some pudding that we had mixed up to eat tonight.  I put the hummus in the fridge and gave him a little bowl of pudding.  He later asked for the hummus again, which by the way, looked JUST like vanilla pudding.   I thought I would remind him that in this particular bowl, it was hummus, NOT pudding.  

Then he picked up a saltine and said, "with this imagination cracker I'll turn it into imagination pudding!  Mmmm!"

GENIUS! encourage kid to believe that hummus is same as pudding. You need to remember to use the imagination cracker in the future.

Do you mind sharing your hummus recipe? The only way I can make it is to get it from Wal-Mart and put it in a dish. :)
