I genuinely think I might be aging pre-maturely. Basically I’m the female Jack. Anyone else remember that movie? This post solidified my belief that I am aging and my memory is going. Let’s recap…

I tried a great pistachio hummus at a restaurant in NYC but myself and my friends agreed it could be better. So I made it my mission to recreate it at home. I went and picked up the ingredients, asked you guys on Facebook what you like with hummus, made the dish, photographed it and even wrote the post. Then as I was reading over the post it hit me, we were at a Mexican restaurant, why in the world would they be serving hummus?

Only then did it occur to me that we tried pistachio guacamole and not pistachio hummus…whomp whomp.

Pistachio HummusMore proof that I am aging:

-I consistently complain that some body part is hurting me.

-I am up all night. Does it make sense that I associate old age with insomnia?

-I get excited when parties call for an early start time so I can get to bed earlier (not that I sleep…)

-I watch The Good Wife…such a Mom show.

-Hot flashes. Enough said.

Pistachio Hummus 2The list could go on, but until I’m in a diaper I’m still in the clear, right? Well if my premature aging results in pistachio hummus instead of pistachio guac, then I guess things ain’t so bad. The day I start posting ground beef oatmeal is probably when you should seek some help for me. Until then, enjoy the hummus!

  1. BAHAHA. You are so good at life.

    And Good Wife = amazing

    And this hummus sounds amazing, despite the fact that you recreated the wrong thing 😉

  2. I just pinned this duhhhh. Love pistachios. Before we were friends I tried making your pistachio butter and failed horribly. I think I got bored waiting for it to process. Oh well, maybe another time. ANYWAY you know I’m basically a 16 year old meets an 80 year old in a 25 year old body. I wish I slept more. JK I need more hours in the day… to binge watch tv of course.

  3. My husband and I constantly complain about…stuff. My answer to all of it is “We’re getting old.” 🙁
    I love hummus any which way so this looks deeeelicious. Maybe a pistachio guacamole will be coming soon. 😉

  4. Mmmmm!! Pistachio is so yummy!

    I like when parties start early too! I have trouble staying up late sometimes. I definitely don’t feel my age anymore!

  5. ugh…. aging…. it is catching up to all of us! I’m so forgetful sometimes! The worst is when you walk into a room and stop and think I have no idea why I’m here. WHOOPS 🙂

  6. I’ve made pistachio hummus before and loved it! Your pictures are absolutely amazing!!! Pistachio Guacamole sounds very intriguing too!

  7. Um, YUM.
    Signs of my aging: the only TV I watch is Food Network and the news and I would rather take a stroll than go to a grimy high school basement party. No shame at all. AT ALL.

  8. Girl, you’re not old until you get mad that you can’t find your cellphone before realizing it’s in your hand and you’re scrolling through insta 😉 I think this hummus will most definitely smooth our old ages problems!

  9. I didn’t think I was aging prematurely, but now that I’ve read what you associate with old age… I think I’m aging, too. 😉
