Today I am at home, decorating for Christmas a bit and jamming out to some Christmas tunes on Grooveshark. But before I start posting about Christmas stuff, I want to get the other recipe I made for Thanksgiving up.
Here's the recipe, from Delighted Momma >
- 2 cups of butternut squash (I used delicata, because it came in our farm box last week)
- 1/2 cup of tahini (sesame seed paste)
- 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
- 2 cloves of garlic
- The juice from half of a lemon
- A dash of cumin
- 3 dashes of cinnamon
- 3-4 dashes of pepper
Slice up the butternut squash into small pieces and boil for about 8-9 minutes or until soft.
Throw all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth and creamy.
Andy made rosemary flat bread to go with it, which was perfect. Basically, make your favorite pizza crust dough (or even easier, buy one pre-made from the grocery store), roll out, and top with a little bit of minced garlic, olive oil, chopped rosemary, and a little salt. Bake until crispy and slice into little pieces. Easy peasy, homemade goodness! This whole thing, hummus + bread, came together in about half an hour.
Now, back to Christmas. I have been doing quite a bit of shopping online so far this year. Not as fun as going out to the stores, but definitely less stressful. Plus, I can browse handmade and artist shops on Etsy and the like, which is nice. Are you hitting any cyber Monday sales? Find any amazing shops I should know about? I am always looking for cool ideas!
