All I can be is me: Broken and Bohemian. You just never know what you’re gonna get.
Hello again. It’s been too long. I’ve been saving up all my swirling thoughts and trying to come up with something earth shattering to blog about. But let’s be honest, sometimes you just need an appetizer on the quick to take to a get together even if you have a head full of thoughts and a heart full of feelings that you just. can’t. seem. to. navigate.
So, let’s just jump right back in with something fresh and tasty. This is the ultimate ‘fake it til you make it’ recipe. And people go crazy over it.
Start with a tub of store brand hummus and smear it around in a serving dish/platter/bowl.
Then, peel, seed and chop up a cucumber into a small dice. I peeled this regular ol’ big cuke, but have since discovered the lovely english cucumber which has a more delicate peel… the peel color would be prettier in this in my very professional opinion. Just do whatever you want. I’m not the boss of you.
Sprinkle the cucumber over the hummus. Chop up a red onion extra small. Or skip this altogether depending on what your onion mood is that day. If you’re feeling oniony, then sprinkle the onion over the hummus too.
Next chop up some fresh tomatoes. I like grape tomatoes because they taste good and summery all year round. Sprinkle those on top of the other stuff, then sprinkle some feta on top of it all. Lots of sprinkling going on today.
Last but not least, top it all off with some chopped olives. When I was a little girl, my Great Aunt Rhea used to send me cans of black olives for my birthday. I still love them and their delicious cousin the Kalamata.
