Creamy Spinach Dip

So I’m all excited because it’s a weekend that I don’t have to cook. Then I remember, that I have a potluck/happy hour thing after school on Tuesday for a teacher who is leaving at the end of the year. Damnit. Yeah, I like cooking, but I also appreciate the times when I don’t have …

And it’s also been 7 years….

So as someone LOVINGLY pointed out when I texted him the picture of my Masters diploma, I also graduated with my Bachelor’s 7 years ago today (or maybe yesterday, actually). And it was pointed out more in the form of: YOU GRADUATED FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE SEVEN YEARS AGO TOO!!” I didn’t forget.  Timehop did, though. …
