Bush’s Hummus Made Easy

A few weeks ago our church hosted a Ward Social with plenty of friends, fun games, and food to go around! The night before I forgot all about it, and my mom (who went with me) ended up waking me an hour before time to be there. She was ready. Me? Not so much! I had to get myself and two children ready, not to mention find something to take to the potluck.

Lucky for me, I remembered I had a can of Bush’s Garbanzo beans and a package of Bush’s Hummus Made Easy.

Within an hour I had all of us and the hummus ready to go. (We obviously aren’t high maintenance).

The Food:

All you need for the Hummus is a can of Bush’s Garbanzo beans and a package of Hummus Made Easy, both found in the canned bean aisle at Wal-Mart.

Mix them together in a blender or food processor and you are ready to go! The flavor is right in the package and there is no need to add anything else. You can if you want to, but it is delicious just as it is.

I chose the Classic flavor for the potluck and received rave reviews and a few people asking for the recipe.

If you aren’t a “Classic” kind of person, they have two other options to choose from “Southwest Black Bean” and “Roasted Red Pepper”. I have tried all three and like all of them. The Southwest Black Bean version is a great substitute for refried beans. See what I made with mine by clicking here.

The Fun:

After all the food, the kids played with bubbles and I played with my camera some more. I am really getting the hang of manual mode. I don’t always get it right, but I am definitely getting it better! Losh enjoyed vlogging and taking pictures of me.

Aybra spent her time blowing bubbles. Lots and lots of bubbles. I kid you not, I have about 200 pictures of her blowing bubbles (must go through them and pair them down!).

January’s Reflections (Quotes on Images)

January’s Reflections (Quotes on Images)

In my daily planner I have a section for “Reflections”. This is where I write things that come to mind throughout the day. These reflections often include thoughts, scripture versus to remember, things that moved me, or quotes. It’s nice to look over these at the end of the month and see where my mood and mind is in life. I decided that for 2016 I am going to share some of my favorite reflections at the end of every month. I have also decided to add these quotes on images. Feel free to download them and use them as you desire.
