Peanut Butter Dip

  Tonight I made this recipe...yes I'm on the Weight Watchers wagon again.  It sounded too good to pass up as I've spent my week thinking "Do people really survive on leafy salads and apples alone??"  

As I read the line 'chick peas, loose skins removed, washed and drained' I thought it would be a short and easy task.  I've used chick peas in many recipes and only seen a few skins here and there.  Lo and behold every damn bean had skin on it!  By the time I realized I had to skin the entire can it became a personal mission that took me longer anyone should spend with a chick pea.  

Tonight I learned two things...all of the chick peas in the can have skins and Weight Watchers is brilliant because in all of the time it took me to skin them, I was not eating!  :)

Enjoy the dip, it's DELICIOUS!
