If you don’t remember that late 90’s gem of a song Da Dip, I’m sorry. It’s kind of catchy!
If you haven’t guessed it yet, today’s Vegan MoFo 2012 snack is one of my favorite dips! It’s easy, and who doesn’t love a good dip? It’s another reason to eat food with my hands instead of silverware, and that always makes me happy.
This simple dipping snack has only two ingredients, but has possible endless combinations depending on your fancy at the moment. Spicy? Done. Sweet? Why not! My favorite is this spicy one right here.
Crissie’s Spicy Snack Dip
*1 tub of vegan cream cheese
*1 1/2 cups of pepper jelly (or any other jelly, or pumpkin butter, apple butter, cranberry chutney…you get the idea).
*scoop the cream cheese out of the tub and put it into a microwave safe dish.
*nuke for about 30 seconds to soften
*mix in the jelly
Yep. That simple folks. D’s favorite way to eat this is with pretzels. I like that or some yummy flax crackers. You can eat it warm or not…depends on how much willpower you have after mixing it. I put it into small containers and pop it into my purse with some crackers, and snack whenever the urge hits.
All I managed today was yoga. Yesterday I was overly jet-lagged and tired and whiny. I did a hell of a number on my right foot in Vegas by hiking all over in (really cute) heels. Didn’t notice it at the time, but tore the skin right off. Shoes suck (yay for warm weather and flip-flops).
I must deal though, since I have a workout scheduled tomorrow that I just can’t put off anymore without feeling like a slug. I need a good run, even if it hurts!
I had a great night’s sleep yesterday and didn’t oversleep today (that’s progress, baby!). I actually woke up 15 minutes early when I heard Sammie walking around downstairs. I freaked – woke D up to check it out – who reported that the dog woke up when the coffee pot started (15 min before scheduled alarm going off), and was waiting for someone to feed her. Oops.
Also, I clearly haven’t finished unpacking yet. Just enough for Bumble to stake her claim for a place to sleep….and to ensure I don’t leave without her yet again.
Today was a conference day and all regularly scheduled meetings were canceled. Woo hoo!
Tonight will be a late one (R’s swim practice time has been pushed out a half hour due to moving to the indoor pool and scheduling lanes). That’s okay though. It’s still awesome to be home.
