|Pitas with Cucumber, Hummus, Honey, Salt and Pepper|
So now, months later, I had a cucumber in fridge, we needed lunch-y type food, and the kitchen was already a complete disaster, so why not make some pitas and hummus?

- Sliced Cucumber
- Salt and Pepper
- Pita Bread
I think I use a different recipe every time I make it. Here's a very basic one with which to start, but I would definitely say this is one of those things that requires you to "taste and adjust." You can also mix in Cumin (I usually do), or sprinkle Paprika on top when you serve it for dipping.
I've used This Pita Recipe twice, and was perfectly happy, but today I went with the Joy of Cooking recipe. Most Pita recipes I've seen are very similar ingredient-wise, so it's really just about the method of the actual cooking part. Here's a great post on one of my favorite food blogs: Smitten Kitchen. She pretty much explains the method outlined in the Joy of Cooking, so bonus...I don't have to type it out for you! I also think she really captures my feelings about making Pitas in her post. While I mostly had success, I did have a few end up as flatbread. I admit, though...I was lazy and didn't do the water spritzing. ...Perhaps that is the key!
