I have to share….

My sister told me my last post sounded like a total sales job.  I love sisterly honesty.

I get a few days a week to work , solo, downstairs in my workroom(s). I am so engrossed in what I do that I often forget to eat. I wish that the forgetting to eat would help me loseWeight Exercise this major muffin top I still have since Jasper was born but ,alas, it’s not wanting to leave (more on this in another post). I’ve been trying to make a few things ahead of time that I can just grab and bring downstairs to snack on while I work. I’m sure this is very interesting to everyone. Anyhow, I have to share this amazing hummus recipe from my most favorite cookbook ever – Rebar.  This hummus is not helping in the muffin top situation, but it is darn tasty!! Please try this. Really. I imagine that CanCan would really love this Bombay Hummus.

1/4 cup of canola oil1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and thinly sliced

1- 19oz cn of chick peas

1/4 cup of cashews, roasted

juice of 1 lime

2 garlic cloves

1 tsp salt

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp of ground coriander

1/2 tsp of cracked pepper

1/4 tsp of cayenne

pinch of turmeric and a pinch of cinnamon

2 tbsp chopped cilantro

2 tbsp chopped mint (I’ve made this loads of times with out the cilantro and mint and it’s still flippin’ delish!)

Gently heat the oil and ginger in a small saucepan. Let the ginger sizzle, but not brown. After 10 minutes, remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor, including the ginger and oil and pulse to blend. Blend to a rough paste and season to taste.

I want to post a picture about the hummus but I’ve lost my camera charger – it’s around, I just can’t find it now. Here is a picture of Benjamin snipping threads after I’ve sewn bodies. This job has beat out winding yarn into balls, which was the favorite job before. He likes the thrill of holding a sharp object. Sweet little man.

    I want someone to clip my threads for me! 🙂 In time I’m sure my little peanut will want to help make bunnies with mommy.

    This is the PERFECT recipe! The thing that holds me back from making hummus at home is the tahini pa$te! But I have an inside supplier of cashew nuts 😉

    Yum, hubs is going to be excited!

    I disagree about your post sounding like a sales job. It’s all just honesty in my humble opinion. I STILL want the Plum fairy to be mine, not Abigails… your post just helps me to admit that out loud. Maybe I should get another one ordered this year… 😉

    Thanks for the hummus recipe… I’ll have to try it for sure! It’s Abbie’s fave food, she might like it too. mmmmm.
