Sailor Moon, how I`ve missed you so. I watched the original Japanese version and I must say I prefer it over the English adaptation- Isn`t that how it always goes though?? Usagi is such a crybaby but her and the other warriors really do right wrong and triumph over evil.
Here's a picture I found of Hello Kitty in a Sailor Moon costume. MeeeOW! I sometimes wonder why Hello Kitty has no mouth. Maybe they wanted her to be universally appealing in that she can't speak just one language...? Oh the things that puzzle me.

Chickpeas please

To be honest, I’m terrified of packaged foods. No one wants to go grocery shopping with me because I literally read all the ingredients of anything that catches my eye. I can’t say I recognize all of them.. but I do know : If I can’t pronounce it.. It’s probably not good for me. Bottom line for me is simplicity.  If I could afford it, I’d buy all of my food at the market.. BUT that would be far too expensive so I work with what’s available.  SO
Here’s a hummus ( my love) recipe that is simple and easy to experiment spices with!
With the food processor running, drop in 1 peeled garlic clove and process until minced.
Turn it off, scrape down the sides and add:
   2 cups cooked chickpeas
   3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
   2 tbsp tahini
   ½ teasp ground cumin
   2 tbps lemon juice
   ¼ teasp salt
Restart the processor and slowly add water, making the hummus slightly thinner than desired (it will thicken in the fridge). Chill to combine the flavours before serving.

Oh and a cool tip from Michael Pollan : Don’t eat anything that your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.


Mmm Green tea is my favourite thing to wake up to. Lately I’ve been drinking unpolished rice green tea (made with brown rice). Full of antioxidants that help neutralize those free radicals!  I usually just pick it up at the grocery store or market but if you want to try new and interesting flavours, I recommend DAVIDsTEA in Moncton! They have an array to choose from and lots of fun tea accessories :)
