hummus and halloween

Yum today i have made two lots of the most delicious sun dried tomato hummus really easy to make-blend together 1 can of drained rinsed chickpeas, 3-4 cloves of garlic, 1tsp of cumin powder, the juice of 3 lemons, some sun dried tomatoes and 1/4-1/2 a cup of oil and whammo delicious hummus. i made one lot this morning which i took to give to my friend and when I came home this afternoon i couldnt resist making my self some!! Also i thought i had after school group today but the children had pet day at school so group was cancelled for this week which left us with the baking i had already prepared-Bonus!-Chocolate chocolate chip biscuits which I dutifully decorated with icing ghosts for halloween! May try to post photos later but at this time my camera has gone AWOL

wardrobe wednesday

well these are pretty dodgy photos but kids had scooted out the door before i had a chance to ask them to take pics! I am wearing floral though and to tell you the truth i dont really do floral not really my cup of tea and i think this is the only floral thing i own anyway Dress-from Ca'Bouge a shop over here in Akaroa-rather expensive but liked the retro look, tights from Farmers and not sure if you can see my boots but they are the ones I tend to wear every Wednesday it would seem

Mt Everest

This is my Mt Everest sized pile of washing that I need to fold and put away today. I find it satisfying to hang out bring in and fold but i LOATHE putting it away there never seems to be enough room hence the piles of clothes on top of drawers and on the floor!!!
