'Girls Night Out' Made In

Planning a girls night out? Why not make it a day in instead.  As I get older I'm learning to appreciate the importance of affordability, relaxation, great company, and fine wine.  So, instead of a late night out clubbing with friends in a crowded bar, over loud music, I decided to make it a Girl's Day In!  A quiet Sunday afternoon brunch to catch up properly, enjoy each others company and manicures.  One of my favourite parts of party planning is making a delicious, healthy spread, including ...

Fresh sliced red and yellow peppers with homemade hummus.


Mini organic whole wheat sandwiches with vegan dill mayo and cucumber, and vegan "turkey & cheeze" with spicy salsa.


Fresh Sunday afternoon orange juice or fruit cocktails: orange juice, pomegranate juice, soda water, vodka, and fresh orange slices.


My Sunday brunch buffet table setup: dishes, cutlery, hummus & crackers, peppers & hummus, veggies, salad, sandwiches, fresh fruit, and a drink station.


Curry Dill Hummus
1-2 cups of cooked (canned is fine) chickpeas
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup of freshly squeeze lemon juice
1/4 cup tahini sauce
1 tbsp fresh dill, roughly chopped
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp sea salt
Pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients together in a food processor, mix together until well blended.  Add more or less water to the hummus depending on your consistency preference.  Serve immediately or chilled.

Enjoy!
