I actually ate spinach

I went to a party at my good friend, Melissa's, last month and at this party she had the most delicious homemade spinach dip. She told me her sister had actually posted it to our recipe blog so I decided to try and make it myself today for an after church snackaroo. It turned out sooooo delicious! We all loved it and couldn't get enough. Check out the recipe on the recipe blog and give it a whirl. This is a great way to get your kids(or yourself-I'm not a huge spinach fan myself) to eat spinach!

Here is the finished masterpiece. I copied the way Melissa made it by hollowing out a round sourdough loaf and scooping the dip inside. Then you can use those pieces you ripped out to dip. Of course you can dip veggies, chips or crackers too. Isn't it perdy?

"We love it Mom!" And they really did- I had to cut them off after a little while so it wouldn't make them too full before dinner!
