Homemade Humous

homemade_humous humous

We didnt’ get any baking time this weekend, so no weekend cake – plus it was too hot to be in a stuffy kitchen! I did whip up a batch of humous, I always keep the ingredients to make it in my cupboard, it’s quick and easy and cheap to make.

You’ll need:

200g can chickpeas, drained
100ml tahini
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 cloves garlic {more or less to taste}
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
2 tbsp olive oil
pinch salt

Place all your ingredients in a blender, and blitz until smooth. Add a little water if the mix is too thick. It’s perfect served with pittas for lunch, or to dip crudites into. Delicious :)

I hope you all had a good weekend? Hot again here, we’re reveling in this summer weather! This is our last quiet week before our busy summer starts, I’ve a lots of orders to fulfill, and things to get ready for visitors and holidays. The kiddos are excited for our summer break! My mum will be here next week for a visit {and her birthday} it’s been a couple of months since we’ve seen here, we’re planning a few trips out with her.

The kiddos have just finished their work for today, they’re heading out into the garden to play, G and I have a big pile of wood to chop up and sort, getting ready for the winter! Seems crazy in this heat, but soon enough we’ll be in need of a fire to keep us warm. We already have enough kindling sorted to see us through the winter, now we can start chopping logs.
