Hummus Recipe

I started out the year by making my own Hummus, I have been meaning to for months. I had the day off so I read several recipes and mixed them together to make some of my own Hummus. I always read several recipes and take what sounds good from each one to make what I want. Here is the recipe for the Hummus I made.

 

Ingredients:

1 can of Garbonzo beans – rinse the beans and keep the liquid from the can

1 whole lemon

Olive Oil

Ground Cumin

Garlic

Salt

Pepper

Optional Ingredients:

Paprika

Red Pepper Flakes

  1. Put the Garbanzo beans, juice of lemon, 2 Table Spoons Olive Oil, 1 Table Spoon Ground Cumin, Garlic, Salt & Pepper to taste into your food processor or blender.
  2. Blend until you get the smooth texture you desire, add in the liquid from the Garbonzo Beans as needed to get your desired consistency.
  3. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for 3 weeks.

This is the base of the hummus you can enjoy as is or add anything for different flavors such as sun dried tomatoes.

Enjoy on sandwiches, veggies, as a dip, whatever you like!

Linen Closet

I have gotten several compliments on my linen closet so I want to share my tips with you. The closet is located in the guest bathroom and is a great size.

The first thing I did was get several different containers and baskets that coordinate together, are different sizes but not all the matchy matchy. Next I went through everything I had that needed to go in the closet.

  • Body Towels
  • Hand Towels
  • Wash Clothes
  • Shampoos
  • Conditioners
  • Body Washes
  • Lotions
  • Oral Health supplies
  • Miselanious

After separating everything into groups that I wanted. I put each into a basket/container and labeled it. This way when guests open the door they can find exactly what they are looking for without need to search. (sometimes as a guest I feel uncomfortable looking for something because I feel like I am snooping)

Next I place everything in the closet. This takes a couple times and is sort of a puzzle, I switch containers and move things around until it all comes together. I want to keep like things together so if you are jumping in the shower you can grab your shampoo, conditioner and body wash easily without searching.

It’s in the details, when folding towels keep the hems or details all facing the same way, it will transform the sleek look with this quick change.

Another question I get a lot is where do you get all those little bottles well it’s simple. When I travel I take them all from the hotel room we are in. I also ask other people for them if they are traveling. 🙂 I used to just keep them in glass containers in the bathroom but my collection is quit large now.

Birds Eye Steamfresh

My sister recommended the Protein Blend Birds Eye Steamfresh and boy was she right. It is quick and delicious. PLUS packed with protein, vitamins and minerals.

It’s in the freezer section of your local grocery store. Only 4 1/2 minutes in the microwave and you have a perfect side dish or meal on it’s own. I grilled some chicken to add to mine for a perfect quick week night meal.

Not all processed foods are bad, you just need to read the label and make sure what is in the package is real food. Not just chemicals. Try this out and let me know what you think, it’s going to be in my freezer all the time.
