5 Days 'til Christmas--YIKES, that came fast! I still have to bake cookies and candy and prepare packages for the mail in the morning...better get a move on. First brunch with the gang...all the important things first, the rest in good time. It always amazes me how we manage to fit in time for holiday cheer with everything else going on...oh yeah, and the Packers too!
For gametime snacking...
Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip:
1 can artichoke hearts
8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 lb steamed spinach (or whatever greens you have on hand)
1/2 cup shredded parmesan and romano cheese (or just parm if that's all you have)
1/2 tsp garlic powder (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
crackers or baguette bread
Place the cream cheeses, spinach and seasonings in the food processor or mixer and blend well. Add the artichoke hearts and mix just until the hearts break down into smaller chunks. Heat in a crock pot, on the stove top, or in the microwave. Serve with crackers or baguette bread and dip away!
