Happiness for me on Sunday was searching for Tahini Paste and only getting blank looks, shaking of heads from the staff in the shop. I find a seriously big pot which was a tad pricey, remembering this would be the first time I have made humus. Am I really admitting to that? Hell yes! Do I really want a huge pot? No!
Another hurdle was ” do you have a smaller pot? ” mmmm smiles and shaking of heads and that look, the one that portrays puzzlement at our request. But plus side was happy smiles when customer managed to find what she wanted.
Grandson (10) to the rescue. “Nannie are these what you are looking for? “
Sesame Seeds at 22 Thai baht was a seriously better bargain than this pot of ready-made Tahini including the nasties @ 279B.
Into the kitchen a quick toasting of the Sesame Seeds, into the mini blender, 3 tbsp Olive oil and a quick whizz , scrape down the sides another tbsp Olive oil another scrape bit more oil and a quick whizz and voila my first attempt at Tahini Paste made, I will say I was pretty chuffed, Happy!
The moral of this story is that happiness can be found in many guises, lots of small bursts of that happy feeling throughout your day however brief, are a bonus.
Happiness means something different to us all doesn’t it? What gives you that warm , happy feeling Leave a comment and share yours .
