There are certain foods that you simply cannot get enough of, no matter how much or how often you eat them. Chocolate, avocado, and sweet potatoes are my big three. Chocolate is the pretty obvious one because, apparently, every female is essentially addicted to the stuff. I remember one night in particular, having bought a few new bars of chocolate to sample, going just a bit overboard, to the point that I felt nauseous. There’s no way I’ll be eating any chocolate for a week,” I naively told myself. Of course, I was back for more samples the following day. Bad memory? Maybe. Or maybe I just really like chocolate….
For the past couple of weeks, life has been happening, with a lot of food in between, and not a lot of time staging photoshoots. Why do I feel like I wrote the same thing in my last post? That’s right - it’s because I did. Again, though, I’ve been spending a good chunk of time in the kitchen. I even had time to make an extra treat to bring into work yesterday. Needless to say, it didn’t last long.
Days have been full of work, schoolwork, and climbing whenever I can. Justin and I just got back from a long weekend of climbing outdoors in the most beautiful weather I’ve experienced in a while, but what we’re really excited for is our upcoming trip to the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. We’ll be gone for most of May, climbing at what has become our favorite outdoor destination. I’ll be sure to take a lot of photos and share whenever I can - the internet connection is quite spotty down there.
Meanwhile, here’s a small bite of what we’ve been eating lately….
I think we are all quite aware by now that I am the president of the hummus fan club. And I’m not afraid to throw an entire head of garlic (roasted, of course) into the aforementioned delectable dip. You may not know, however, that I am a cauliflower fiend. I horde the stuff like it’s going extinct, and it’s not out of the ordinary for me to eat an entire head in one sitting.
So why, I asked myself, have I not combined my love for these three versatile ingredients? And yes, hummus is an ingredient (hummus based salad dressing, anyone?). Well today is the magical day that it happens. And let me tell you, I could not stop eating this. I’m almost positive that a third of it went into my mouth before I even got around to scraping it out of the food processor….
