I finally feel like I’ve reached the “fun” part of summer!
This past week I took my state test to become certified to teach middle school social studies. I’m not going to lie though, it was brutal. With the possibility to be tested on ANY event/person/civilization/land form/etc in the world, it was impossible for me to know everything that would be on the test. I’ve been studying for this exam for months and I still feel that there was so much I didn’t know.
On the bright side though, I love studying history, so it hasn’t been torture to prepare for this test. And I had the chance to brush up on government, geography, and economics- subjects I’ve always been slightly on the fence with. Anyway, results don’t come in until next month, so I’m forced to chill until then.
Which means I can guiltlessly begin to make stuff in the kitchen again! Such as on one of my favorite veggie dips!
Cajun Vegetable Dip (Paleo)
1/2 head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
Juice from 1 lemon
Fill a pot with water and add in the cauliflower. Bring water to a boil and cook the cauliflower. Once tender, drain cauliflower, transfer to a food processor and blend until smooth. Add in the rest of the ingredients and blend until all combined. Cool in the fridge for at least 3 minutes to allow flavors to intensify.
