Creamy beet hummus

Whyyy is it so hot out? The air is so heavy it makes it hard to breathe and no drink or ice cream are making it better. And my kitchen is now a sauna, which would be wonderful if I…

Did I ever tell you about my first job? I don’t think I did. I got my first official have-to-sign-a-contract type of job when I was 16 and it was at a local McDonald’s. My friend was already working there and she told me to apply for a position. I went in for an interview with a manager, got the job and started working there pretty much immediately. I worked there after school, on the weekends and often during the school holidays. I remember kind of hating the job but loving it at the same time, because I got paid and I needed the money.

I worked at all stations and looking at all the jobs I’ve had, I think working there was the hardest. Maybe because I was so young and maybe because it was just exhausting. The heat, the smell of grease, the time pressure, none of that was easy to handle. The uniform was uncomfortable and I ruined a pair of shoes there.

Oh boy, I’ve been a bad blogger. This little break I’ve had wasn’t planned AT ALL. A little while back I told you about me being sick and at that time I really felt like I was getting better, only to realize I was feeling a lot worse a day or two later. My doctor thinks I caught one virus and as I was recovering I caught another one. It’s unfortunate, but I have noticed a lot of people have been sick and I guess I just wasn’t careful enough when I went out. My blood tests didn’t show anything apart from me having a cold, so this isn’t anything serious, but it still sucks. I have a full list of recipes I want to share and I just haven’t had the energy to do anything in the kitchen.

I am slowly getting better though, with the help of medicine, tea and fruit. Chamomile tea with honey is my absolute favorite. When I was younger, my mom always made me tea that was a mix of mint and chamomile. That was my favorite back then. Clearly, my taste hasn’t changed that much. I do love different types of tea, but nothing makes me feel better and cozier than chamomile when I feel sickly. As for fruit, I’ve been loving clementines and red oranges. Clementines especially are a winter essential. They’re kind of like snow. I can’t picture a winter without it and […]
