Get ready for a jam packed post today, folks. The purpose of this post is two-fold: participating in the Blog-tember challenge AND linking up with Oh, Simple Thoughts for the Bread and Wine Link Up.
Let’s kick it off with a recipe. Since getting a food processor, I’ve had a list of food that I’ve wanted to make using the machine. One of the items on the list was hummus! I saw a recipe from Life Could be a Dream a few weeks ago and thought it was the perfect recipe for hummus. It’s a simple, tasty and affordable option for a great snack!
Rachel from Oh, Simple Thoughts posed the following question for this month’s link up:
How do you slow down when it comes to the food you feed your family, and the time you spend with others in your home?
I think this hummus recipe is the perfect example of slowing down when it comes to food. Instead of buying the quick, easy store bought option, you have to slow down just a little bit to intentionally make your food. Making food from scratch with quality ingredients nourishes you physically and can nourish you spiritually.
I’ve always loved homemade meals. Even meals that take 30 minutes or less to make still allow you the time to slow down and really take the time to make the most of your food. Being intentional about the food you eat and the time it takes to prepare it can make a huge difference in the long run.
Now on to the second prompt of the day. The theme for the day for the Blog-tember challenge is 10 things that I love about myself. Not going to lie, this is a tough one for me. But, I came up with a list and would love to hear about your list as well
Things I Love About Myself
I love that I know my way around the kitchen
I love my laugh.
I love that I’m organized (weird, I know)
I love that I’ve never dyed my hair (thanks, Mom!)
I love my style.
I love my creativity.
I love my sense of humor.
I love that I can talk sports.
I love that I’m from the South
I love that I’m a crazy cat lady ( and proud of it!)
