Since Halloween is tomorrow I have been doing a few things to prepare.
1. I made you all this pumpkin hummus to snack on in between candy binges.
2. I’ve been watching a show called Disappeared on the Investigative Discovery channel.
3. I just started reading the book Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
4. Numbers 2 and 3 on the list have pretty much made me scared of my own shadow. Why do I do this to myself!?
In case you have not heard of this book it is pretty much a physiological thriller about a marriage that has gone terribly wrong. It is well written and totally creepy. Since I am already a paranoid insane person it makes total sense that I would dive right into this book, right? I can’t seem to stop. My addiction to psychological thrillers is like my addiction to hot sauce. It’s awesome and intense at the time, but once I’m done I’m usually left sweating and questioning my sanity.
Pumpkin Hummus ( inspired by nomsforthepoor.com)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup almond butter
2 cloves garlic
4 tbs water
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup pumpkin purée
1 1/2 cups chickpeas
Place all ingredients in a food processor and purée until smooth. If mixture is too thick add a little more water. Enjoy!
Also, if any of you have read or heard of this book let me know what you think/ thought. I’d love to hear from you!
