When the Boy and I first moved to the Boston area, we’d spend our weekends exploring the area, trying to get a feel for our new home.
It’s been a few years now, and while we’re more used to this place, we’ve gotten into our everyday routines and have forgotten to keep exploring.
I’ve decided to take a week and try something new every day. Whether it’s going to a new place or even taking a different route, I’d like to try to expand my world a little bit more and see what all is out there.
On Saturday I stopped at Samira’s Homemade, a place that makes Egyptian and Lebanese food. One of my friends has raved about their hummus. I’ve been on a bit of a hummus kick lately, so I decided to stock up a bit.
At Samira’s, I got my first taste of Ful Medammes, which simply put, is the Egyptian version of hummus. It’s made with fava beans instead of chickpeas, so it has a slightly different flavor. However, it’s equally as delicious, and I don’t think the container I got is going to last me very long. I also got a tub of sun-dried tomato and basil hummus, which makes celery sticks actually taste good to me.
Exploratorium Day 1 success. Here’s to hoping the rest of the week goes well!
