Where do I go from here?
How does MY heart go on, huh???
My soul is physically exhausted from the excruciating joy I felt at Leo’s win on Sunday night.
I have waited for this day since I saw Titanic for the first time as a booger-filled 6-year-old. Everything about him enchanted me & I have never let go of that feeling. When Julianne called his name, I thought my heart might actually burst out of my chest. It was one of those hurt so good moments, ya know?? I screamed, I cried, I terrified nearby animals, it was just everything I dreamed it would be.
I also deserve an Oscar for making it to work Monday morning as a functioning human being considering the circumstances.

That meme of Leo and his girlscout cookies kills me.
It’s hilarious. Looks just as happy to have those cookies as he does his Oscar!
It looks very delicious!
Thank you, thank you!
Question: I love chickpeas but I hate tahini and sesame in general, so I never tried hummus. Can you really taste those flavours?
Really?? What a shame! Well, I’ve never had hummus without the tahini so I can’t say what it would taste like. Will you give it a try sans tahini & let me know?? I’m curious!
Yeah, I’m planning to try soon! I already bought the chickpeas actually 😀
Man, I LOVE hummus and this is a GREAT recipe! Thanks!
I do, too! Best lil snack. Hope you give this a try!

You get it.
I hadn’t realised it was the Oscars until everyone on my Facebook feed started mentioning Leo’s win. Ahem. Out of it, me?
Anyway. Roasted garlic! IT MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER. Seriously, if they’d put roasted garlic on his Oscar Leo would have agreed it was improved.
Ugh you missed an epic moment then. Better YouTube it! Hahahaha if he’s the man I think he is, he’d definitely like an Oscar slathered in roasted garlic 😀
Ha ha you crack me up – I have missed your blog, as I have been mad busy, so playing catch up……..Your photos put mine to shame when I did humous…..and parmesan hmmm not thought of that, well done.
You’re a sweetie pie! I love the addition of some parm in hummus. Makes it so rich!
