Cranky Fat Feminist Speaks

liberal feminist from the south who ran away to college in the mid-west, and quickly retreated back after my four years were up. trying to save the world one picture book at a time; attempting to live healthier to lose weight, but without giving up beer. challenging the idea that “big is beautiful” as well as what I’ve learned and experienced about women, gender, and feminism from my time in college as well as my time in West Africa. pissed about the apathy of the world, ready to create change one mind at a time.

I'd love any comments you'd like to share! And as always, I'd love for you to click on an ad when you're done reading, it's a simple free way for you to give money towards my student loans!

avocado garden dip

I rolled up my sleeves and tested out my kitchen skills this afternoon, and threw together a "not-hummus" veggie dip. Here's what its got in it--
  • 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt for 2 avocados (try to make the avocado as creamy as possible)
  • 2 minced and crushed cloves of garlic
  • fresh from the garden basil leaves, chopped fine
  • fresh from the garden grape tomatoes, diced (handful)
  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of fresh salsa
  • dash of thyme, crushed red pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper

I'd also have added cilantro if there was any in the house, and may add a squirt of lemon tomorrow to keep it fresh and green-tinted. It goes great with carrots, cucumbers, and broccoli so far!
