Hi everyone. It is Sunday again which doesn't make me as sad here in the Summer as it does during the school year! Imagine that! My school year will begin again quick as a wink. It seems once August hits, time flies. On the bright side, I am looking forward to meet the new kiddos in my class. I have been having fun, crafting up a storm(mostly jewelry).
The Kitchen Is My Playground . I cut the recipe in half-12 oz. softened cream cheese, 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup mayo, and 1 large onion very finely chopped. I don't care for crunchy onions(unless they are green scallions) so I went over and over them when I was chopping. I baked the dip at 350degrees for 50 minutes. It was delish. My husband and I are part-time empty nesters. I say that because there are many nights during the week both our sons are either working or busy so the hubs and I are on our own. I came up with the idea for a couple of nights a week of soup and nibbles. We make hot appetizers(either homemade or from the freezer section) and soup. This hot dip became an instant favorite nibble! I ate it warmed up for a couple of days after and it was still yummy! I think when I am charged to bring something to the next family get together, this is it.
I have some sewing I want to get to this week. My husband and I are getting away for the night Thursday which will be nice. I have a doctors appointment a little over an hour's drive from home, so we take advantage and head a little further to a favorite spot to get away for the night. Next weekend, we are going to a flea market/craft fair of sorts. I am looking forward to that. I am toying with the idea of becoming a vendor next year at this annual event. I am kind of apprehensive of taking my handiwork to the next level. I keep thinking I haven't found my niche yet. I have thought I am the type of person who needs a gentle but firm shove but that is silly. I need to pull up my big girl pants and go after what I want! Does that sound convincing? I hope you all have a great week. Take care. Nancy
