Wednesday Ramblings

I am sharing some Sweet Pea Feta Parmesan Dip today at Eat Drink Love.  Go check it out, you will adore this dip!  The texture resembles hummus and the peas add a sweetness that is a perfect compliment to the salty cheeses.

I stinking cannot get enough of these cards.  Seriously, how true is this?  Don’t deny it. I told Paul about this and he didn’t get it until he found out that there was a store called Forever 21.  We are cultured over here.

Have you entered to win the Cuisinart 12-cup Food Processor?  We want your best salsa and tomato dip recipes!

So, you probably aren’t surprised that I think about food nearly all day.  But these things, I really can’t stop thinking about.  And all I can say is that I have some amazing friends who have the same love for food as me, and they seem to just feed my addiction all day, every day.  What I can’t figure out is if it’s a good thing or a bad thing:

No-Knead Bread. This is bread, that you don’t have to knead, obviously.  For a lazy bread-love like myself, this is bread perfection.  The end.

Lobster Rolls with Garlic Butter Buns.  I have been thinking about these all. day. long.

Beer Braised Potatoes with Rosemary Beer Gravy. I mean, how on earth could a side dish get better?

Yep, all very good things.

The end.

PS – are you going to IFBC in Portland?  I will be there, hope to see you too.

    That dips sounds fab! Yes, I love those cards too, they always give me a chuckle, and always seem to voice what I’m thinking exactly. 🙂

    Hi Cassie! First-time commenting here but I just had to say something when I saw the Forever 39 card. LOVE it. I saw that one the other day, too. Nothing better than wine and yoga pants! 😉 Have a great Wednesday! (Oh, I’m the blogger previously behind Blonde & Balanced in case you’re wondering. I think we’ve chatted on twitter a bit! :))

    Hi Cassie, I came from Stephanie’s blog and had to pop by here too. I already commented on the dip but it really does sound yummy. I love those e-cards too, they never fail to make me giggle.

    I’m off now to subscribe and stalk I mean, err, follow you on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and StumbleUpon.

    the cheesy pea dip sounds delish. I make a pea avocado dip. Will have to try yours as well.
    The cards are so funny, they always put a smile on my face.

    I love those eCards also! And seriously…Forever 21 is like the UNculture capital of the world, so you’re pretty much culturED for not knowing about it. 😛

    I WISH I were going to IFBC! But that will be the third time I’d have to travel in five weeks and I don’t think my boss would be very happy about it…

    That pea dip looks so good, Cassie! Smeared on a piece of grilled, crunchy bread! Those E cards are hilarious! (And true!)
    And I’ve been obsessed with lobster rolls lately since I found out there was a truck here in D.C. that features them! Heading over to Stephanie’s to check out the pea recipe! : )
