A Quick Humus

As part of the Falafel recipe already listed, I never listed a Humus recipe, or more like how to make it.

Ingredients

Please note that my kids are very salt and pepper sensitive so adjust to taste.
  • A tin of chickpeas, NOT drained
  • 4 tablespoons of tahina (sesame paste)
  • 2 cloves garlic, bottom cut off and pealed
  • teaspoon of powdered cumin
  • 3 or 4 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method

The one thing about Humus is it must be smooth. SO use a strong blender.

Empty tin into the blender then add garlic, tahina, the garlic cloves and cumin. add the 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and 2 tablespoons. And blend. Not that I have kept on standby the lemon juice and Olive oil. This is because you may need to add it later when the blender is struggling.

Blend or pulse until mixed, then taste, add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.

Then blend again.

If it is too thick add the extra olive oil

You can also add powdered coriander or paprika for taste,

You can use this with the Falafel recipe or even on a pita with a salad, yummy ;)

Fixing winmail.dat problem - specifically in Quickbooks

For months we have had problems with attachments from Quickbooks. Having looked down many avenues I think we have found a fix or few: (See below for update) Here are a few websites that help out: Microsoft Outlook/Exchange MS-TNEF handling (aka "Winmail.dat", "Win.dat", or "Part 1.2" problem of unopenable email attachments) http://news.office-watch.com/t/n.aspx?a=716 KB958012 : When you use Outlook 2007 to send an e-mail message, the recipient of the message sees an attachment that is called Winmail.dat Essentially the summary is that there is a problem with Outlook trying to force Rich Text Format. so you need to turn that off.

Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency – what is it and how can I benefit

What is it I started investigating Bitcoin when it was worth just over $1000 a bitcoin. I was interested in what it was and how it worked. A lot of people are saying we missed the boat, but I believe that everyone should at least try put a little money in now, or at least use a faucet (see below) to make a little micro-currency. You can read a Wiki article about bitcoin and its history etc. But what you need to know is that it is a currency, that is independent of country. No one really knows who invented the concept of a cryptocurrency since the person who published the paper used a nom de plume. All new cryptocurrencies work more or less the same way as Bitcoin. So as I explain below I interchange these terms. Bitcoin is the original cryptocurrency. How Bitcoin works The currency releases a coin based on a mathematical formula. There will never be more than 21 million bitcoins (other cryptocurrencies do not work like this). Each bitcoin can have divided into one hundred mil
