Roasted Squash Hummus

Roasted Squash Hummus - a quick tasty hummus using kabocha squash // roughmeasures.com

Guess what, we (in the UK) are into British Summer Time. Longer evenings, alfresco dinners and sunshine! The online downside to this is winter veg will be out of season. I thought I’d make the most of these last wonderful squashes that are around, and whizz up this roasted squash hummus. Dips are my go to, I like to make sure there’s always a pot of some variation of hummus in the fridge. Ready and waiting for when I get in from work and need something stat, ready to dollop on my packed lunch to give me some energy through the day. Read more

Turmeric Hummus

A quick post and this lovely turmeric hummus recipe for you lot today. We are having more and more issues with our internet, and it’s proving difficult for me to have access to upload my recipes online. Boat life is good, and it’s good to be away from the World Wide Web for a wee bit. So I’m sat here on my lunch-break getting this uploaded for you. I hope your week is filled with sunshine and good food!

Pea and Mint Hummus

So here I am. Currently watching the sunset from our caravan desk, on week one of our nomad summer. It’s been a glorious few days here on the Isle of Wight. The sun has been out in full force, welcoming us to our new dwelling. I feel like I am at my best when I am outside, with the dewy grass between my toes, and the wildlife all around.

Adapting to the new surroundings is a little unsettling, although we are used to changing scenery every few weeks due to cruising the boat around the canals. It’s still a challenge. But challenges are good, I truly feel they are designed so we can be the very best version of ourselves.

Setting up my little kitchen unit takes a while! I’m one of those people who panics if things aren’t in their rightful place. Everything needs to be just so, and I can get a little cranky until it’s that way. Another little test is doing the grocery shop. I’m pretty sure I covered at least 2 miles in the supermarket today. To-ing and fro-ing between the isles, trying to make sure I’d remembered everything, and all the while trying to push one trolley and pull another. Shopping for 30 is quite the experience!

Beetroot and Butter Bean Hummus

WHAT A WEEK. We’ve just got back from our holiday to the alps. I am exhausted and all my muscles ache, but I am filled with gratitude, love and energy to the wonderfulness that is the mountains. They make you feel totally insignificant but powerful beyond words. Storming down slopes and open powder bowls. Hiking ridges above cliffs to access those sweet, untouched fields of the fluffy stuff. I had a permanent smile on my face. Riding with my best friends, in such a beautiful and breathtaking place. I am in awe of those mountains. The view never fails to amaze me, the great vastness of the alpine range, the views of Mont Blanc, and Lac Leman. We are blessed to be able to have spent so much time there, and that it is so accessible to us. We ate too much cheese, drank too much beer and laughed until our sides hurt.

Sometimes you just need to give yourself a break, to recharge your little mind, to laugh at your tumbles and falls, to realise that it’s gonna be alright. Whether that be from a holiday, or just a good old cuppa. Make some you time, put your feet up, give yourself a pat on the back. You’re doing good kiddo. Keep on keepin’ on.
