In a perfect world,
the picture above would contain a beautiful round loaf of bread, hollowed out with this wonderful dip nestled into the center.
I might have shown you how scrumptious it looks to scoop up the dip with heavenly slices of Fabulous French Bread. Everyone who has ever tried this fabulous dip is in L.O.V.E.
I might have shown you all of this,
in a perfect food blogging world.
It is what I would have done for you, my friends.
As it were,
the beautiful round loaf of Fabulous French Bread
I made (just for you to gaze at)
sat wrapped up on my counter for no less than 5 days.
Waiting, and waiting for a photo shoot.
Then it got cut in two and turned into a French Bread Pizza.
Because, my world is not perfect.
And good heavens, neither am I.
And….I needed easy pizza for dinner.
And 5 day old Fabulous French Bread isn’t fabulous,
unless you turn it into something else.
So, in your minds eye.
Picture this Creamy Spinach Dip with Fabulous French Bread.
The two need each other.
If you are planning a Super Bowl Party this weekend, invite the two of them over. I think you will be pleased with your choice.
I might even say….
Creamy Spinach Dip
Time: 10 minutes + 2 hours refrigeration
Yield: 4 Cups
Recipe adapted from Knorr
1 1.4 oz Vegetable Recipe Mix by Knorr seasonings
1 10 oz package baby spinach, chopped
2 C sour cream
1 C mayonnaise (I like Best Foods Light)
1/2 C carrots or celery, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1. Chop up your spinach into very small pieces. Do the same with the carrots and green onions. Small….like about the size of a pea. No one wants to scoop up some yummy dip on a piece of delectable bread and have a big fat carrot hanging out on the end of it. Not yum. Make them small. Little tiny.
2. Mix all ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
3. Serve with pieces of French Bread. You can slice the bread, or just rip into small chunks. It’s also yummy to dip veggies in. Enjoy!
