A couple weeks ago we impulsively got onion rings at a restaurant. I can say pretty confidently that in our entire relationship we have NEVER ordered onion rings. Maybe once in college we got a bloomin’ onion at Outback with some friends. Generally it’s not one of our go to eats.
Sooo, I have a secret. As you may or may not have picked up from my previous hummus recipe, IIIIIII get a weee, ity bity little bit sick of hummus from time to time. I know, blasphemy. Perhaps this is self-inflicted, but we go through hummus spurts that leaves me feeling very over hummus. I’ve tried different hummus recipes but they never really stick. So I tend to constantly be searching for healthy snacks that aren’t hummus.
Enter artichoke dip. Heeellllllo, beautiful!! I made this dip, tortured Jaryd by making him wait while I took pictures to share with you all, and we put this baby away like it is no one’s business. I don’t want to embarrass anyone here (could very well be talking about myself), but when we ran out of things to dip, someone got a fork…
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hello 2015!!
We had a great time ringing in the new year! We had some friends over for a “noon year’s eve” celebration aka we counted down five seconds before noon because we didn’t catch it in time to count down from ten. It was fun to celebrate and enjoy some time with friends that we don’t get to see enough. Aaaaand I got to use them as taste testers for some new recipes. We watched the 6pm fireworks show and went to bed promptly at 10. Nothing like starting the new year off well rested 😉 And by well rested I mean my kid still wakes up at least twice at night so “well rested” is pretty relative considering…
Philadelphia is home of the mummers parade! This morning we woke up, bundled up, and marched over to Broad Street to watch the troops strut their stuff! They dance, play music, and hand out beads to the kids. It’s very entertaining and one of my favorite new year’s traditions. Here are some pics of the fun! Thank goodness for our selfie stick!!
Happy hump day everyone!
Confession: I totally wrote a post last night, put it out into the blogosphere and then 5 minutes later took it down. From the moment I pressed “Post” it just wasn’t sitting right. I mean, it was fine, just a bit uninspired and I want to rework it to make it better for you guys! I just wasn’t excited about it, you know? So, having said that, you have my word. I will only post tried and true recipes that make me do a little party dance.
OK! I have my naptime latte and am ready to sit down a type a post for you peeps 🙂 Er, I need one more sip before we begin. Ok, that was more like 3 gulps, but now I’m READY!!!
