Today was a long day! I spent the entire morning and afternoon staring at page after page on safety, confidentiality, and conduct. I also filled out insurance, tax, and retirement paperwork. Sounds like a blast, right? The only thing that kept me going was knowing I was coming home to a smooth, spicy, and satiating snack! (PS: I kind of love alliteration.) I am never buying hummus at the store again. It’s just too easy to make at home…
Fiesta Avocado Hummus (adapted from Emily’s recipe in O Magazine)
- 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 2 tablespoon diced jalapeño (reduce for less spice!)
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon water
- juice of one lime
- Combine all ingredients in a larger food processor or high-powered blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Eat with your favorite dippers!
After eating more than my fair share of the green stuff, I starting planning out the first week of school. Hopefully everything will go smoothly! I’m scared the kids are going to eat me alive. Today really wore me out… and I know it’s just a taste of how tired I’ll when I have a classroom full of fourth graders. Once school starts, I’m going to end up looking like this every night:
Right now I’m hanging out with my boys and resting up for tomorrow. We have a few meetings at school… and then I am going to make it to the gym, whether I like it or not! Have a great night!
