Good morning everyone,
It's a beautiful day here in PA, I am so grateful for this beautiful weather. Today is my granddaughters birthday party, so since the weather is so nice the party can be out doors too great for a bunch of little children to run & play.
I usually don't post a pic on something that I made on the weekend, but last

 night after wrapping her present which was a doll carriage & of course a baby doll, I thought I'd make her a card. She is only going to be 2 tomorrow & I know that she really isn't interested in the card, but maybe her mom will keep it until she grows up & understands. It isn't anything spectacular, just a quick card.
I am also making a hot spinach dip with tortilla chips. So I thought I would post the recipe for you to make in case you would like a new recipe for this kind of dip. It has a little kick to it, but very delicious.


2(10oz)packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed
2(8oz) packages cream cheese, softened
2 cups(8oz) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 small onion, chopped
1(14oz) can artichoke hearts, drained & chopped
2(10oz) cans diced tomatoes & green chiles, drained
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
DRAIN spinach, press between layers of paper towels to remove excess moisture.
COMBINE spinach, cream cheese & remaining ingredients, stirring well.
SPOON mixture into a greased 2 1/2 quart baking dish.
BAKE, uncovered, at 350 dgrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
SERVE, with melba toast rounds or tortilla chips.
YIELD: 8 cups
Hope you enjoy both the card & the recipe.
Have a Wonderful & Blessed weekend.
