I’m trying something new this year.
Food sculpting? No, turns out hummus is a tricky medium. Or maybe the tiny seafood fork I used wasn’t the best tool for the job.
Besides . . . the look of death The Husband bore into me while he was sorting through the giant stack of filing I gave him (when all he wanted to do during precious, and in recent days, rare toddler nap time was lie on the couch and watch The West Wing on Netflix) and I sat next to him with my tiny seafood fork molding the word “NEW” onto tortilla chips claiming I was “working” and would need him to listen for the boy to wake up so I could then take my hummussy, tortilla chippy masterpiece on a photo shoot in the newly fallen snow was, shall we say, less than pleasant. Insert run on sentence here. Oh wait.
Perhaps I should just stick to describing hummus in a way that is nothing at all like how Melville described how white the whale was in Moby Dick. That was a run on sentence too in case you aren’t a Literature nerd like me.
The hummus was orange.
But how orange the hummus was is really not the point I’m trying to make here. I’m supposed to be talking about the new thing I’m trying this year.
Duh duh duhhhhh . . . .
I’ve decided to become a joiner.
No, no I haven’t hopped on the Kale bandwagon or started using the phrase I digress or bought stock in Chobani yogurt or stopped using the word moist or offered a fabulous giveaway open only to those who promise to tweet their first born child to me. And I have definitely not started eating oatmeal and blogging about it like it’s better than french toast, pancakes, omelets or bacon. It’s not.
I have, however, joined the BIC Bands bandwagon and bought me a sparkly new headband. While still not technically relevant to this post, I am pretty sure Katrina would approve of the sparkles.
Ahhhhh, yes, finally a point in this mess. Who is Katrina? She is the fabulous chick I have decided to join over at the blog ‘Sota is Sexy. Katrina is funny! So funny I’ve learned not to read her blog on my cell while rocking my sleeping babe. Laughter and sleeping babes do not mix.
For instance, January 30 is “your biggest flaw.” Clearly my biggest flaw is hummus sculpting.
If you’re wondering why I sculpted hummus in the first place, it’s because Katrina told me to. The topic for January 1 is “NEW” and Katrina politely suggested I “share a photo of the word “NEW” completely sculpted out of hummus and cheese curds.” I’m not a huge cheese curd fan and Katrina is a vegan again anyway so I skipped that last part.
So I will be joining in and posting daily in January with my own interpretation of the January Blog A Day Challenge. You may be aware though, that I do have an active toddler (yeah, he’s toddling now) and don’t have the time to devote to a lengthy post more than a few times a week. So a portion of the posts will most likely just be a picture or two. I’ll try to make them prettier than NEW in hummus, though. After all, when you take away the N in NEW, all you are left with is
Question of the Day: Have you ever made a mood board before? Apparently it is the topic for January 21, but I gotta confess (which is January 11) that I have no clue what that is.
