2 Ingredient Dinner – Houmous Chicken

Yep, that’s right, you can have a delicious dinner on the table in 20 minutes using only 2 ingredients.
I don’t know about you but I always seem to have a pot of half-eaten houmous in the fridge that needs using. I can’t remember where I first saw this idea. Whether it was Pinterest or a foodie magazine it doesn’t really matter, it tastes amazing.
I first made it for Mum’s birthday in July, and I was going to post the recipe {if you can call it that, it’s so easy}, immediately afterwards, but life gets in the way.
Speaking of life, I hope yours is brining you everything you could ever dream of. I feel like I need a major catch up with some of you; I am getting round blogs again, slowly but surely.
Since Dad left finances have been pretty tight. Mum only works part time, and both M and I are unemployed {fingers crossed for the interview tomorrow!} Not only is this recipe simple, easy, and healthy. It is also cheap and uses up any left overs you have in the fridge.
I used plain houmous for this, because it is what I had, but any will do. Try it with garlic, red pepper, onion, see which flavour you like the best.
You want around 1 tablespoon of houmous per chicken breast. Cover the breast, wrap loosely in aluminium foil, and cook for 20 minutes on Gas Mark 6. I served mine with just a simple garden salad, but you could try a pasta salad, potato salad, or even bake off your own potato wedges.
     

The Girl Who Believed She Could Change The World

Via

There was this girl who was lost.

Lost in her own head and the world around her. Lost in her situation.
She spent months frantically searching for something to find meaning in, and eventually opened the bible that lay dusty on her shelf.
It changed her.

In that moment the girl felt just what it was like to be loved. She wanted to exude that love. She wanted to forgive with love. She wanted to love the sinner. It just took her time to realise that the sinner she needed to love the most was herself.

The girl started on a journey. One that would wreck her from the inside out. She knew it was going to be painful, but she could already see glimpses of beauty when she looked in the mirror. Her journey even took her to a different county, and back again. The journey made the girl see herself through God’s eyes, and sometimes she didn’t like what she saw.

The journey ended and the girl started to change. She forgave, she let all the hate out of her heart, and she learnt to wait.

The girl made contact. She asked for help. She built a community around her. She felt safe.

The girl could see the future, and it was shining bright.

The girl felt loved.

The girl is me.
