Roasted Red Pepper Dip

I love this dip! It is so yummy! I hope you like it as much as we do.

1 jar of roasted red peppers
2 bricks of cream cheese
1 pkt of ranch dip

Soften cream cheese. Drain roasted red peppers and puree. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. It is better when it has set over night. Warm and serve with a sliced bagette.
* for quick dinner you can use this as a pasta sauce. Add diced cooked chicken and a little milk to thin it out. Then add spinach (opt) and your favorite pasta.

Take a minute to reminisce...

This is a fun little post I got from Shaina. Have fun.

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

What flavor am I?

You're Vanilla.
You're as popular and relaxing as vanilla ice cream. You go with the flow, and get along with all sorts of people. You appreciate peace and simplicity, so you sometimes find crowds and loud noises overwhelming. You are a chilled-out, calming influence on the people in your life, and your friends appreciate how supportive and flexible you are.

What flavor are you?

**thanks to Shaina for the fun quiz.

So here is a slide show of some highlights from our trip. You can scroll over the pictures for captions. We had lots of fun playing. Garin and I went to lunch and a small farmer's market the day he arrived. Besides all the places we went while we were there, the kids had lots of fun playing in water and such in the backyard and playing games and doing puzzles. Max came too and he loved having the freedom of the backyard as well, he has been a little sad since hes been home with less freedom. We did have a few days down because Amellia got sick (poor little thing). She was so sad because everyone was eating ice cream and she couldn't. One game we was a memory game that all the cards are different kinds of candy. One of the nights Amellia was sick she was hallucinating about the candy in the game and it was making her nauseated. I felt bad for her but it was so funny too.
We took a geology tour the day before we left that was pretty cool, Riley and I love rocks. Finally all the girls except Amellia came home with the chicken pox! I think that is why Amellia was sick. As of last night poor Garin has them now too.
So now were are back at home sweet home and we're slowly getting back into a routine.
