Sun Dried Tomato Dip

It’s been one of those no-good days again…the kind I seem to be having far too many of lately. I guess that means that I need to make something chocolate to counteract the blues, huh? That always helps. Or at least that’s what I tell myself and that seems to help. Chocolate makes the world go round, in my opinion. :)

And so does this dip! OHMYGOODNESS it’s like heaven on a cracker if you ask me! On the day that I made this dip, I was going through another one of those bad days. The kind where we spend all day long at a hospital with my son receiving numerous treatments/transfusions/whatever he needs that day. That day our favorite couple friends had texted me asking if we wanted to get together. My first thought was that I’d be at the hospital all day and not want to do anything that night. But when they said we didn’t need to do anything fancy, we could just order a pizza and chat I was completely on board! I promised to make a dip if I had time and they brought the wine. WOOHOO! I also got done at the hospital in time to come home and whip up this dip. And let me just tell you…it’s the simplest thing in the whole wide world to make. You literally just throw some ingredients in a food processor and push a button. And the taste will blow you out of the water it’s so fine! We all had a fit over this dip, well…everyone except for my “I-don’t-eat-tomatoes-and-refuse-to-even-taste-the-dip” hubby. I had a little too much of this dip that night and well, to be honest, a little too much wine too. But who’s keeping score? :)

Sun Dried Tomato Dip

1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup good mayonnaise

10 dashes Tabasco sauce

1 teaspoon kosher salt

3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 scallions, thinly sliced

Puree the tomatoes, cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, red pepper sauce, salt and pepper in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the scallions and pulse twice. Serve at room temperature or cold (I prefered this dip cold) with bagel chips or crackers.

    GORDO | October 17, 2010 at 5:14 pm | The Senate passed a rsetluoion in July 2009? Strange.Also, I did not think that Leo Donofrio (sp) case had been heard by the Supreme Court on appeal. It has only been picked up to go to the SCOTUS within the last month. (seems Thune has the facts wrong).A rsetluoion in the Senate is not proof or even evidence that the birth did in fact happen in Hawaii. Regardless, even if born in Hawaii, that will confer citizenship, but it is not NBC type citizenship. The difference is that NBC requires both parents to be born in the USA. Also, it is the father, not the mother who confers citizenship. Using my American born cousins as an example here: their mother at the time of their birth was an Australian citizen, not an American citizen. Therefore each of my first cousins are not NBC. At the same time they did not receive Australian citizenship because we did not have dual citizenship at the time that they were born. c398bama sr was a Kenyan. He came to the USA as a student. He was never an immigrant to the USA. He had a temporary visa. As such, he could only confer British and Kenyan citizenship. Ann Dunham was a minor per the law when she gave birth, and she could not confer citizenship upon her son. Since Hawaii has also been hiding the indexes for births in 1961 from the public, it would be a good guess to state that c398bama’s name is missing from those indexes. I would also guess that the information so far provided has been inserted and that includes the microfiche copies of those newspaper birth announcements. Unless someone has a print copy of the newspaper from 1961 why should this be used as any form of proof? It is not proof. Only the long form birth certificate, complete with names of doctor and midwife is acceptable proof of the place of birth. Everything else is subterfuge and a lie.
