I am not kidding! Surprised us too!  So what are we going to do?  Celebrate of course!  And share the fun by passing on one of our very favorite party dips:

Spinach and Artichoke Dipspinach-artichoke-dip

1 cup thawed, chopped frozen spinach
1 ½ cups thawed, chopped frozen artichoke hearts
6 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • Boil spinach and artichokes in 1 cup of water until tender and drain. Discard liquid.
  • Heat cream cheese in microwave for 1 minute or until hot and soft.
  • Stir in rest of ingredients
  • Serve hot

To save some calories, replace the cream cheese with Neufchatel cheese, and the sour cream with plain Greek yogurt.
