I lucked on two jars of Tahini (1 pound each) Regular price was $12 a jar, they were on clearance for $5 each. Then I had two jars...I don't eat it that fast, so gave a jar to a friend. She tried to pay me for it and I had to get grumpy with her.

Is tahini a salad?

Tahini is sesame seed butter, like peanut butter only made with sesame seeds. I use it to make hummus. This was a killer price for that much of it.

That's a great price. We go through a lot because TB loves hummus. I started making the tahini from scratch as well because of the cost and the great mini processor I have that makes quick work of it - great peanut butter too!

I am procrastinating here and on FB instead of folding laundry and getting back to my very frustrating crochet that I have to have done by Friday so I can pack it up to take to the Beier family Christmas on Saturday.

I am going to miss Zellers, even though half the time they were out of stock on sale items. I liked that they were Canadian. Our store closed its doors 2 weeks ago. Three young women from our church lost their jobs.

I'll miss Zellers too. I just ignored their ads. Half the time out of stock? More like 80% of the time. But, they had good enough prices that the sales weren't important.

Tahini seems to get ugly if you don't use it fast enough, so I use some toasted sesame seeds and some sesame oil in my hummus. I mean, you only need a tablespoon or so of it, then you have a jar that turns into concrete. So I guess you could say that I make my own tahini (not really, I just toast sesame seeds, put in a little of the oil, and then blend it with the beans).

I usually don't bother making it, just adding seed, too. But I do use it often enough that this won't last. Of course I have to get the oil stirred down first. I'm going to use Addie's trick of turning it upside down for the day.

Can't believe its my last day off before Christmas! Sheesh! I didn't get anything accomplished in the last couple of days. Between having a sickie in the house, having to run to work to fix some paperwork, and having Ken home on holidays, I'm WAY behind on everything I need to finish before the big day.

I'm sitting on my butt right now, but today's list will need to include:
- gingerbread making
- shortbread baking
- maple cookie baking
- nuts and bolts toasting
- present wrapping
- decision making on the desserts for Christmas

I'll be doing some of the same things if I hurry and get my butt into the shower. Add to that doing errands and cleaning the house for a party tomorrow night. Ahhhh!
