Would You Still Be My Blog Friend If?……
Would you still be my blog friend if 1) You knew that my house looked like a disaster zone this morning (Been a busy week finishing up this quarter of school and having a lot of final assignments due for both James and I. But I have time this morning to do a super clean!) 2) You knew I walked outside with my plaid jammie pants, striped fleece, and rain boots (no rain) in our highly populated apartment complex parking lot? and 3) You knew I let Tiago wear socks on his hands to school?
In other news, this is what Tiago is taking to lunch today. Very healthy with a little treat because it is Friday and I am in a celebratory mood!
Then you have peas, avocado, the orange mush is Pumpkin which leads me to a toddler feeding trick.
*Pumpkin is a great food for kids. If your kids won’t eat pumpkin, just add cinnamon. No sugar, just cinnamon. I am telling you my kids will eat mountains of it if it has cinnamon in it. Also, the organic cans at Whole Foods are close to $3. James and I buy our groceries with food stamps and live off of student loans so $3 a can is redonk. Pumpkin is not a food you HAVE to buy organic. I get it at Wal-Mart for $1.50 a can. The only ingredient in it is pumpkin, and that is good enough for me.
Then you have your pineapple followed by some olives and about an ounce of almond cheddar.
I have classes on Tuesday and Thursday at school from 3-8. I often pack a full on dinner to take with me, but last night I just took snacks because I had a big lunch and my little Starbucks petite of course. So I packed some carrots, almonds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, and the best hummus creation ever.
Hummus Creation: I got this idea from my sweet friend Ashley’s rehearsal dinner. She had it at one of my favorite places in Nashville called Fido. It is known for being Nashville’s best coffee shop, but it is so much more than that. They have incredible food. They did small dishes so we could enjoy many different flavors and tastes. My favorite dish of the evening was one of the appetizers. A super yummy hummus on pita bread with goat cheese topped with honey. My mouth exploded and it took real self- control to not hold the servers hostage until they agreed to bring me more. Don’t know why it took me until yesterday to try and recreate it but I honestly almost cried it was so good. I mean, I LOOOOVE food what can I say?
Best Hummus Creation Ever Recipe:
* 1 piece Ezekiel bread
* Now place hummus on bread. Use a spicy hummus of some sort. I used the jalapeno cilantro kind from Whole Foods.
* Then crumble some goat cheese on the bread.
* Now drizzle a teeny weeny, I mean tiny amount of honey over the bread. We are talking less than a teaspoon.
* Last, add some cracked pepper.
Try it and then tell me what you think!
