Thursday Thoughts: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

This was one crazy week.  I had to go to Boston unexpectedly on Tuesday.  We had great weather and I got to tour some roofs.  Check out the views. Unforntuately a day away means a day of work that didn't get done. 

The last two days I was at Hamilton, NY.  Do you know what is in Hamilton, NY?  Not much.  Colgate University is there though and it is a gorgeous campus.

I got home today and there was a lovely package from the folks at Peanut Butter and CoBaking Serendipty hosted a giveaway and I won.  So much fun to win a giveaway. In fact it is double fun. Finding out you win is exciting and then you kind of forget again until the package arrives. This package made my day.  Thanks so much!  I cannot wait to dig in.

The recipe I have for you today is very simple and great to have on hand for a simple, healthy snack.
