Happy last week of 2015, y’all! Have you been having a happy holiday season? If you’re anything like me, you’ve been over-indulging in all things fattening and fun!
And not that I’m complaining, but can someone please tell me what in tarnation is up with this weather? I do realize that I live in the south, but it was 78 degrees here on Saturday? It’s been hot, rainy (most of the time), and humid for the last week or so.
It’s the end of December and we slept with the windows open the last two nights. Fortunately, we didn’t get homicided. I woke up Sunday morning with a spring-like breeze coming in the windows, the sun shining, and the birds chirping like it’s the middle of June! My apologies to my friends in the colder climates.
I was all comfy under the covers with the mistaken belief that I was in the middle of my summer vacation. It’s true that I’m on (a much needed!) stay-cation, but we’re a long way from summer. It’s almost New Year’s Eve! And that means more partying!
Every good party needs some dip, so I bring you this artichoke dip (no spinach) that’s totally easy and always a hit. A friend of mine gave me this recipe a long time ago. It only requires three ingredients and about thirty minutes in the oven.
Yes. Mayonaise is involved here and so are artichokes and parmesan. That’s it. I apologize for the photo of a big blob of mayo, but Jennifer
demands politely requests pics of steps and I try to oblige or she throws a hissy fit is heartbroken.
Anyway, everyone needs an easy go-to dip for a holiday party and I’ve totally got your back. Seriously, a 5 year old could make this.
And y’all be sure to check back on Thursday for a delicious cocktail and we’ll totally ring in 2016 in style!
