I can't even believe I just typed that! Is is possible April is already over? Yikes!!!
I wonder if it is crazy that some of my favorites in April are about food! I think I must have been doing a bit of eating in the month of April. I think that is because I am depressed that winter will just NOT end. However, today May 3, we are now seeing spring. It is in the way of thunderstorm warnings and tornado watches. But it IS spring.
Now on to the favorites for April.
I have discovered the best hummus I have ever eaten. Do you like hummus? Hummus is a thick paste (spread) made from ground chickpeas and sesame seeds, olive oil, lemon and garlic. Well that is what 'real' hummus is. And I like it too. But in April I discovered Lantana Black Bean Hummus. And it is to die for!! It is made with black beans. I love, love, love, black beans. This hummus is sweet AND spicy. It has a corn relish topping in the middle. And the best thing is it is ONLY 45 calories per 2 tablespoon serving. Hip, hip, hooray. Lets hear it for black bean hummus.
You might ask what I eat my hummus with? Well, let me tell you what else I have discovered that I am in love with. Wasa Crackers. These are a very thin multi-grain crisp bread. And they are perfect spread with a layer of hummus and topped with sliced cherry tomatoes. My favorite snack of all time for the month of April. I have already gone through 2 tubs of hummus. My favorite flavor of Wasa crackers has been Rosemary and Sea Salt. Try them!!
For my birthday in early April I received a gift box of sangria. It is Lolea Sangria. A Spanish sangria made with fine wine and natural ingredients and is soooooo good. And the bottles are delightful.
I also found a new podcast that has quickly become a favorite. Do you listen to podcasts? This one is my go to podcast when I am having trouble sleeping at night. It is called Sleep With Silk. They have several different ones that you can download in the iTunes store , but my favorite is Nature Sounds. It is awesome. You can listen to water babbling, winds blowing, birds on a beach, a backyard fire-pit....and on and on and on. I am in love. And the best part is it is FREE!
That's it! Just a short list for April. I really didn't do much in April so I didn't try out many new things. I didn't order much on line (I am waiting on a couple of light cardigans for spring) so my list is short. But they are my favorites. Let me know what you found to be a favorite for April.
