Dipping in

Dip Thanks for all the love for the alpaca Hannah.  She's a sweet sweater, but it's freaking hot.  I'm also back at work after 2.5 weeks off so it's uniform time on top of the heat. Yay.  Oh did I mention that my uni is tight after all the cheese chomping?  Yeah, good times.

Since I've got no new knitting to show, I can share some fabulous links to recipes I came across.  I came across a copy of Whole Living Magazine on the plane and found a couple of easy dip recipes that sounded super good.  One is the Sun-Dried Tomato Artichoke Dip and the other is Coriander-Chili Pinto Bean Dip from the Healthy Dips article.

I made the pinto bean dip as written and it's really delish.  It's rather like a hummus, and I used it on bread and as a dip.  The Tomato Artichoke dip is awesome too.  I changed the quantities because I wanted to use all the artichokes and tomatoes in the packages.  I don't really use leftovers, so in it all goes.  I also processed the whole thing in the food processor to make it smoother.  I'm currently munching on sandwiches made from this spread.  Yum!

So that's my 2 cents on dips at the start of the football season.  Squeal!  Go Niners! (I suspect my dip recipes are better performing than my football team though.)
