Roasted Red Pepper Artichoke Dip

You guys are probably just as stuffed as I am from the super bowl but I wanted to share this quick dip with you before I forget.  This is a super easy, super delicious recipe that you’ll want to keep in your toolbox.    The recipe is from my Mom, I’ve made it a handful of times and its always delicious and received well.

Speaking of the Super Bowl… holy crap that was a blowout huh?  Seattle won so I’m happy about that but it was just sad, I felt kind of sorry for Denver.  I was starting to root for them to get a few more points so they would feel a little better about it.  Oh well, I’m glad they didn’t because I won $50 on the final score! wooohooo!

We had some of this dip leftover so I made a huge spinach salad tonight topped with this dip, some roasted garlic caesar dressing & buffalo shrimp.  YUM!  I bet it would also make a delicious sauce to serve with some grilled chicken, steak or veggies.  Ooh, that just gave me an idea, I think tomorrow night I am going to make a veggie quinoa bowl topped with this sauce.

 

WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:

When you get a warm day during the winter where you can actually drive in your car without a jacket on.  Saturday & Sunday were so gorgeous, we were able to get outside and take a nice long run.  I took a little trip to Trader Joe’s and blasted my music while driving WITHOUT a jacket.  I know it sounds weird but its just so freeing to not feel all bulky for once after bundling up in winter clothes for weeks.

It was nice while it lasted, now back to the cold & snow…

  1. […] time I cooked it up with some cauliflower, roasted sweet potatoes and tossed it in some leftover roasted red pepper artichoke dip.  It was like heaven on a plate.  I need to make that dip more often just so I can use it in […]
