Leftover vegetable soup and some pita with hummus.
Hey that's what I had tonight. Except my vegtable soup wasn't leftover.

It will be tommorrow night though.

What exactly is pita with hummus?
You've never had hummus? Pita? You poor thing! Pita is Middle Eastern flat bread, notable for the pocket that you can stuff -- traditionally with delicious falafel. Hummus is a paste made from tahini sauce (sesame seeds), chickpeas, garlic, lemon, and sometimes other spices or things like red peppers or olives may be added -- it is also a Middle Eastern food. I sometimes make my own hummus, but I'm broke and the falafel place round the way has a sweet deal: a large tub of hummus for $2 and they always throw in at least 2 free pitas.
