A couple of Saturdays ago, we went to Poker buddy and Facebook friend Erika and Lind’s apartment for a Poker game and to watch the UFC 100 match. That was a great night with much fun playing cards and watching, for basically the first time, the UFC. One of the highlight of the night for me, was Lind’s Spinach Dip.
Linds is a Penn State grad of their culinary program and works at Aramark. So she knows her way around a kitchen although she says she is spending too much time doing admin work. What a shame for a talented cook.
As for the Spinach Dip, it was inspired by the version, I first tried at TGI Friday’s but Linds’ version has almost everything in the kitchen into the dip making it great. She put in chopped frozen Spinach (drained), Artichoke hearts, diced Red Pepper, Sour Cream, Cream Cheese, Mayo, Alfredo Sauce, Pecorino Romano cheese, Tabasco sauce, Garlic powder, Adobo seasoning, salt and pepper. I know I like Grace’s Spinach Dip at the Mexican Hold ’em party but this mixture coming out of a hot oven with really fresh Pumpernickel Bread was awesome. Thanks Linds. Creamy, a with strong spinach taste (Popeye would be proud) and a nice cheesy background flavour. The dip had a great contrast of creamy sauce and great chucks to give the dip some textures to delight your mouth. Great job Linds.
BTW Erika had great cupcakes but I ate them so fast no photographic evidence exists to this day. LOL. Nice cupcakes Erika.
