How colourful does that look? I tried to fancy it up a bit so I got 3 peppers, cut the top and bottom off, then sliced them into rings. It was a little bit fiddly but quick enough to do.
I scooped out the seeds and kept the bottom to fill with the dips, it looked fancy and also saved using more dishes, great for me as I really didn't want to do anymore washing up! I filled them with guacamole, hummus and some cream cheese.
Then I chopped up some carrots, celery and washed some grapes for a bit of sweetness. I had this lovely colourful plate that I usually use for summer BBQ's I thought it would be perfect. All the colours together made it feel really summery and made it easy to ignore the cold outside.
It was all so quick and easy to put together and quite tasty. I had never had hummus before, the texture was a bit funny for me but the taste was nice, I think I would like to try ones with more flavour and next time I will give making my own hummus a go. I love guacamole I could eat a tonne of it.
I had some dips and vegetables left over so I put together a mini snack platter for Ella when she got home from school. I gave her breadsticks and some lightly salted nachos as well. She loves food that she can pick up with her hands and try different things so she was delighted.
