Happy Monday!

I am so excited that it’s Thanksgiving week. This holiday is pretty much my favorite, food-wise. I can’t get enough of the turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, rolls, pumpkin pie… so excited! This year I’m taking a road trip with my family to my Aunt’s cabin in the woods of Oklahoma. I am so happy to be getting away and being able to relax and eat good food. Sad to have to leave Link the puppy with Nick for so long but mommy needs a break!

My friends over at ALOHA are doing a “pass the dish” for holiday gatherings project  and I decided to join in, giving my own spin on “bringing a dish to pass.”. You can check out ALOHA’s awesome recipe page here.

Spinach Artichoke Dip 1

I love spinach artichoke dip at parties and holiday get-togethers. I’m always the one to hover over it, eating crackerful after crackerful. Keep me away from the spinach artichoke dip or it’ll be gone before you know it!

This spinach artichoke dip is filled with three different types of cheese, sour cream, mayo garlic, vinegar, spinach and artichokes! It’s made healthier by choosing all low-fat or fat free versions of cheese, sour cream, and mayo. Serve with a side of reduced-fat Wheat Thins, or thinly sliced French bread.
