I’m Dippy, I Admit ItPosted: November 28, 2011
I love dips. Some of my favorite meals consist of nothing but chips and dips. Back in the day, before calves, The Bull and I would spend Christmas eve, just the two of us, watching The Christmas Story and eating only appetizers…with lots and lots of dips. I have some wonderful memories of those few Christmas eves….probably how I ended up with so many calves, but I digress.
With Christmas fast approaching, I decided I needed some dip recipes Weight Watchers style and I found one that is only 1 point per serving and features one of my most favorite cheeses, ever…Feta. It looks super easy to make and sounds pretty tasty too. I am going to test it out this week. If you give it a go, let me now what you think.Bon Appetit!
