a blog of many colors.

They say that the one most important factor in making a blog or a website successful is finding a focus and sticking to it. If you're a food website, don't post family photos. If you're writing about books, don't link to music. By that rationale, this blog is doomed to fail. Well, so be it.

Here is your post for today... perhaps my first food-blog-post on this website.

Last night for dinner I was seeking something easy, cheap, and delicious. I ended up with an awesome vegetarian treat: hummusy, garlicy, spicy, and fresh. It doesn't get much better in the summertime. So, without further adieu, let me introduce my Sauteed Mushroom Flatbread "Sandwich."

It all begins with the mushrooms. Sauteed in garlic with thyme, a splash of sherry, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.

Once the mushrooms are ready, the Flatbread (from Trader Joe's) goes into the cast iron skillet to warm.

Then the hummus--home-made is preferable; it's light, garlicy, and exactly how I prefer it.

Smear the hummus on the warm pita, garnish with lettuce and tomato, add the mushrooms, and you're done.

Holy delicious, Batman!
