Sunday Funday

in All Posts

Hullo there.


I hope you’re having a relaxing Sunday.  I have to say – I have had the BEST day.  Nothing special happened.  But it was truly an awesome day.  We went to my in-laws’ and helped them move some heavy furniture, I watched television, and I went on a 3.0 mile run. 


I also pretty much wrapped up my book!


Hmmm.  Perhaps that’s why I felt so stress-free…




Eventually, I peeled myself away from the couch and whipped up a little dinner.  I made a TON of Holy Deliciousness Hummus.  And ate many globs straight from the food processor.  It’s so delicious.  Hence – the name!


With steamed greens and roasted red potatoes with BBQ sauce.



My plan for tonight is to convinced the Husband to get ice cream.  Seems like a very Labor Day-ish thing to do!

    haha – I love that ice cream screams Labor Day to you. So funny.

    I love roasted potatoes – those look delish!

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats September 4, 2011, 8:31 pm

    yum, those potatoes look delicious! And yes, ice cream is absolutely necessary!!! Always necessary.

  • Katie September 4, 2011, 8:32 pm

    Looks like those are floating almonds haha! And I love those cat’s eyes they are intense.

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) September 4, 2011, 8:38 pm

    I need to make that hummus! I couldn’t use my kitchen for a few weeks and totally forgot that I had that recipe bookmarked.

  • Hillary September 4, 2011, 8:54 pm

    Ice cream = the best end of summer treat imaginable.

  • Mary September 4, 2011, 8:58 pm

    I made the Holy Deliciousness Hummus for our get together today and it totally lived up to its name!!! Everyone loved it and there wasn’t a drop left over. I may just have to make it again tomorrow for myself.

    • CaitlinHTP September 5, 2011, 10:19 am

      🙂 Yay. I am glad everyone liked it. I hide the container in the back of the fridge 🙂 Selfish, I know.

    Love the cat pic. So cute!

    I’ve been thinking about eating ice cream almost all day today… 🙂

  • Jules September 4, 2011, 9:44 pm

    When I cook any pasta (wheat or rice) or grain, or when I cook pretty much anything in water, I add a vegetarian seasoning called “Vogue Cuisine Instant Vegebase” to the water after it heats up. It is like boullion (sp?) for vegetarians– and it is low sodium, gluten free, flavorful, and versatile. I buy it at Publix in Miami (Dadeland location) in the health food aisle. I recommend sprinkling some into your cooking water for your quinoa and millet for an extra flavor boost.

    • CaitlinHTP September 5, 2011, 10:18 am

      Oh yummy. That sounds really good. I’m going to search for it at our grocery store.

      I miss publix!

  • Carla @ Will Run for Health September 4, 2011, 9:45 pm

    Congrats on finishing up the book! PS: That is a very fluffy faced kitty! So cute!

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife September 4, 2011, 9:51 pm

    Ice cream IS totally Labor day to me!! Do it.

    Congrats on the book being done and wrapped up–NICE!

  • Shari September 4, 2011, 9:52 pm

    Congratulations on finishing the book! How better to celebrate than ice cream?! 🙂

  • Stephanie @ Love Life Project September 4, 2011, 9:57 pm

    Congratulations on finishing the book! Birthing a book is pretty much the perfect thing to do on labour day weekend. Have a great day. Eat ice cream.

  • Paige September 4, 2011, 10:01 pm

    Today haS been simple yet good! Sometimes those are the best:) I’ll have to try that hummus!

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb September 4, 2011, 10:01 pm

    finishing the book deserves ice cream at the very least!

    on another note, i love your holy deliciousness hummus. made it for the first time when you first posted and have made at least 3 batches since then!

    • CaitlinHTP September 5, 2011, 10:18 am

  • Dominique September 4, 2011, 10:40 pm

    That cat is gorgeous! Is it your in-law’s cat? Yay for your book being pretty much done! Doesn’t it feel great to have completely something that epic? And your potatoes look fantastic. I never think to buy red potatoes when I’m at the store, or to eat them with BBQ sauce. That’s definitely a must-try.

    • CaitlinHTP September 5, 2011, 10:18 am

      YESSSSSSSSSSS it feels amazaballs.

  • Alaina September 4, 2011, 10:48 pm

    Who’s cat is that? (great shot). Now I really want a cat. Actually, no, I just want a kitten that never grows.

    That is the cutest cat! Is he/she part Scottish Fold? The folded ears are missing, but looks a little like it in the face. I’m *cough* slightly obsessed with those cats.

    • CaitlinHTP September 5, 2011, 7:19 pm

      I think he’s a British Blue?

  • Amber K September 5, 2011, 5:52 pm
