Four more days until Christmas! Wow time sure goes by fast. It seems like it was just Halloween. Even though the holidays are always such a busy time of the year, I try to enjoy it as much as I can by doing fun and simple activities with family. Whether it be making silly paper snowmen with Noelle, dancing to Christmas music or walking the neighborhood looking at Christmas lights. I just love Christmas.   

This is our little Noelle’s 2nd Christmas but it’s the first that she understands it a little more. She’s learning that this weird guy with a white beard says “ho ho ho”, she tries to sing along to some Christmas songs (that girl loves to sing!) and has already unwrapped a gift she found under the tree (looks like we have to wait on putting them out early!). 

On another note, I have an easy lunch or dinner recipe I am sharing today that is great for around the holidays or for those busy days when you need to whip something up quick. Incase you missed it, I also recently posted my Italian Baked Eggs with Veggies which is another great meal to make that requires little prep work. Check it out!

Cilantro Hummus

Cilantro Hummus
Cilantro Hummus- a tasty twist on traditional hummus, easy to make, and tastes so much better homemade!

I had my first taste of hummus about 10 years ago when my brother-in-law took us to this small Middle Eastern restaurant in Tempe called Haji-Baba. I was hesitant. Dipping pita bread in this light brown paste did not look appetizing. But then I had my first taste and I was surprised how flavorful and amazing it was! Besides just eating it with pita bread, it is delicious as a spread in a sandwich or wrap, on pizza, or served with fresh or grilled vegetables. This is also a fun dip for kids and a great way to sneak in some veggies 😉
