I'm feeling really snacky today, so this recipe came right to mind. Wish I had a food processor here so I could make some at lunch. This is a recipe that was given to me by my college friend, Patrick Schrappen, and he's a great cook.
Sun-dried Tomato Dip
3/4 lb. feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 c sun-dried tomatoes in oil (drained and chopped)
1 clove garlic
1 t. dried thyme
1/2 t. dried oregano
3/4 c. milk
sprinkle of cracked pepper & salt
Combine ingredients in a food processor and mix until smooth. Chill before serving to allow the flavors to blend. Serve with cut vegetables, chips or flatbread. DELICIOUS!
One time, when I was visiting friends in Arkansas, I was trying to make this, but we were rushing around. We couldn't find sun-dried tomatoes in the small store in town and didn't have time to head to the city. So, I thought I would just try to substitute roasted red peppers (the kind you find in small jars) for the sun-dried tomatoes. I must say, I think it was just as delicious! Just a little different flavor.
Today is the last day I'll be in the office this week as I am heading to my hometown to enjoy a few days off and attend my cousin's wedding. My brother and I are singing in the ceremony, and we need a little extra practice with Dad beforehand. In the meantime, I'm trying to work hard to get many things in place before I leave. Laundry, dishes, projects that are not completed... so I won't be able to post my recipe tomorrow. But, I'll be catching up with two recipes on Thursday since I'll have computer access at Mom and Dad's house. Sorry, in advance, for the break in posts.
The most important things to get in place? My ribs... or whatever is still out in my back. So, I must depart for the chiropractor once again. Hope each of you has a wonderful day, and I can't wait to see your recipes. Yesterday's posts made me so HUNGRY!!!
