Roasted Garlic and Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

Hello my friends!

So…this post is gonna be kindasortamaybealittlebit serious. Like not really funny. At all.

If you need some laughter in your day, check out this post by The Bloggess. It will totally make you LOL.

And now on to the serious stuff.

After reading this post by Bri of Designlovefest and this post by Madison of Espresso and Cream, it got me thinking about my own life.

I thought about all the pressure I feel.

To make my husband and kids happy.

To come up with new/creative recipes and take good pictures for my blog.

To keep our house in some kind of order.

To maintain a healthy weight.

To be a good mom.

To be a good wife.

Sometimes the pressure can be too much.

Sometimes I cry.

Okay, maybe I do more than cry.

Maybe sometimes I bawl my eyes out because I often feel like I might not be doing enough.

Or that I’m not good enough.

And sometimes what I really need is this. (Actually maybe I only need number 1 from that list.)

Or some ice cream.


Okay. Since I know you didn’t come here for a pity party, here’s a healthy-ish snack for ya.

If you’re not a fan of sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers would be a fine substitute.

So, my friends, how do you deal with the pressures of daily life? 

Roasted Garlic & Sun Dried Tomato Hummus
