Eating, Reading, Listening, Loving

Hi all! Time for another episode of ERLL!! Are you ready?? Let’s do it!

Eating: I have found it. The thing I want to eat for the rest of my life. I feel so fortunate to be alive in the same era as this food! I give you…


DARK. CHOCOLATE. HUMMUS. This is the stuff of my dreams. It almost tastes like brownie batter, if you’re into that sort of thing, which I am. It is delicious with apples, bananas, strawberries, and any other sturdy fruit that won’t fall apart when hit with a wall of hummus (lookin’ at you, raspberries). I found it at 2 local grocery stores, so I imagine it would be fairly easy to find at any grocery store. YOU ARE WELCOME.

Reading: Currently not reading any particular book right now, except for The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which I’ve read before but since it is my newest favorite book ever, I like to keep it by my bedside and read it when I get the urge. Book Club is next week, so I’ll have a new book to tell you about next time.

Listening: Honestly, I can’t think of anything that I’ve been listening to that I haven’t told you about before. I watched part of a documentary about country music last night, so afterwards while I was working in the yard, I listened to some 90s country. On purpose. I used to be a kinda/sorta country music fan until 2013 when all the songs on country radio became about trucks, drinking, and girls in short shorts. I haven’t listened since.

Loving: I’ve been using this company for several months now and I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned it before. I’m sure you’ve all seen the Grove Collaborative ads on social media…well I decided to give it a try mostly because I hate buying cleaning supplies, so I thought it would be a little more pleasant to have them delivered. And it is! Here’s what I love about Grove: I can change my order every month to fit what I need, there is no minimum to purchase, all of the products I’ve tried smell really good, and they write a nice little thank you note on the outside of each box (I don’t know why that gives me a warm fuzzy each time, but it does). The only things I’ve tried that I didn’t love were the wood furniture cleaner and the Method and Mrs. Meyers dishwasher pods (I did however really like the Seventh Generation dishwasher pods). So I feel pretty confident in recommending them to you, and yes, some of what they sell can be found at Target or other stores, but like I said, I hate buying cleaning products, so for me, this is a good way to ensure I have what I need, when I need it. If you want to try it here’s a link to get started (if you decide to make a purchase, this link will get you a 5 piece gift set and I’ll get a $10 credit – this isn’t an affiliate link, it’s available to everyone once you sign up). I should probably mention, they sell a whole lot more than just cleaning supplies – everything from candles to skin care, stuff for your babies and your fur babies, and even sunscreen and bug spray. I really do love it.


My first shipment from way back in March. 


That wraps up my ERLL for this time. Hope you enjoyed it!

    Ha! That dark chocolate hummus looks amazing! And believe it or not, I ENJOY buying cleaning supplies. I think I even bought a few of the Method products at Lowes. I think I didn’t like the smell of one of them. Anyway, I like buying lemon scented cleaning supplies 🙂

      Lol! The Method toilet cleaner smells like spearmint – it’s like giving your toilet a breath mint!!

    I saw that hummus this past weekend and almost bought it, but didn’t. Now that I know it’s actually good, I’m definitely getting it this weekend.

      I hope you like it! If not, I’m going to feel really bad! 😬

        I figure no matter what, it’s dark chocolate. It’s already got a B+ just for ingredients!

    I haven’t seen that hummus at all, but now I’m going to keep an eye out for it. I’m just trying to picture it not tasting like hummus (which I actually love!) I’m going to grab it if I see it, I’ll take your word for it… does it work frozen?

    • October 7, 2019 at 10:27 am

      Hey Kyra! I haven’t tried it frozen – let me know if you try it. It doesn’t taste like regular hummus, just like a sort of grainy dark chocolate brownie batter…kind of. I like to smear it on bananas and apples and strawberries and I *might* have eaten it directly off the spoon. 🙂

        I can’t find it! *sigh*
