H is for healthly. Also, hummus.

So at our church, there has been a health craze. Once a place known to gain your fresh 15 (usually the newcomers… and I was pretty close!), has now become the number one location where chicken in being consumed on a weekly basis. Anyways, so we’re trying to hook each other up with healthy recipes and what not and last week was hummus. That picture was taken with my friend’s phone because, neither of us have cameras. It’s pretty decent quality though, don’t you think?

Well why all these food posts? I guess I’ve been stressed (yeah, ninja saga’s got that kind of power over me) and been munching and snacking away. But of course I wanted to share as well with others.  Oh, which reminds me. I read a facebook status last weekend in which someone had tried to make it with his own bare hands. To no one’s surprise, it came out crumbly. Nice try.
