Tangy Spicy Buffalo Hummus – everyone’s favorite chickpea dip gets a spicy kick with everyone’s favorite hot sauce! great for game day, party tray, or a random Thursday!
An old friend of mine has been belly dancing since, like, five years old or something. Her mom used to dance and is now a teacher, and my friend grew up learning from her mom. She is exceptional, and I am not just saying that as a friend. She dances in the Egyptian style, and can do a seven minute drum solo – isolated movements, precise and impressive.
Because I have been to so many of her performances over the years (and she used to dance at my birthday parties!), I became quite familiar with many of the aspects of belly dance, and with the other local performers.
Fast forward to present – I am spending my January taking my first belly dance class! I am taking a private class with a friend, and it has been so much fun! We begin each class with some lovely yoga stretches and planks (can I ever get away from planks? good thing I love them), and then get right into the moves!
This class is fusion – a blend of many styles, which makes it so fun. Some things come easy – the hip moves are fun for me, while others are difficult to grasp – the actual belly movements and doing things with my left hand – doesn’t always feel natural. I’ll get there, and in the meantime, I’m having fun!
So – this hummus.
Bummus? Buffamus? Snuffleupagus? Hustleupagus?
