The new job starts on Monday, so with this week off I’ve been finding that I really have no idea what day/date it is. It’s May apparently. Definitely something to celebrate after that unbelievably long winter.

With these boxes to unpack and go through I’m getting nostalgic. P- and I live in a tiny Montreal apartment, so we’re focusing our efforts to de-clutter. This means going through and getting rid of a few things that I have a strange, unreasonable connection with. Like the printer paper painting my 3-year old sister made and our old Christmas decorations. Silly things that we definitely don’t need and just live in boxes until the next move, but I’m sure anyone reading this can relate. Getting rid of “things” that we’ve had for years is hard.

I have pretty much jumped into the kitchen with both feet. I’m moving in, but P- has been living here for a year already (with my kitchen supplies) so everything is pretty much set up. We made this dip recently – one of my favorites, and it was truly perfect.

P-E-R-F-E-C-T!!

Life is just better with dip. It is absolutely the life of my party. Unpacking or not! You know? You’re sitting, chatting with friends, someone brings out dip….total silence…AND THERE ARE HOMEMADE PITA’S?! Let’s just swoon together already.

    It sounds like the moving has gone really well, and I am happy that you’re getting to rattle up more goodies, thanks for sharing, and all the best for May! I could hardly believe it myself this morning when I noticed we’re another month into the year. It only feels like last week I was standing looks at the New Year fireworks! x

  7. Nanny says:

    Glad to see your back in the kitchen with P. I can just imagine the dishes you will be whipping up.:)

  8. laurasmess says:

    Wow, that dip actually looks like a meal within itself! Yum. Spinach, artichokes, cheesy, creamy goodness = absolute winner. Glad that you’re getting some warmer weather where you are. We’re the opposite over here. It’s gradually getting colder and rainier (in Australia). Not that that’s all bad… hot chocolate, warm blankets, slow-cooking in the oven… love those moments! Anyway, back to this recipe. Thanks for sharing, I definitely plan to try this next week as I’ll be attending a party… I think my friends will gobble it up wholeheartedly! x

  11. Laura @ Raise Your Garden says:

    Posts like this remind me that I shouldn’t go to Applebees when I’m craving spinach and artichoke dip…….I should make it myself…………………and save myself a mortgage payment in the process, right? the cost of going out is insane!!

    • katrina says:

      haha, I knooooow!! Going out is so expensive! Plus, it’s way more fun to make stuff like this at home.

  12. I’m just constantly amazed by how you manage to make such incredible recipes with such a busy life! Can’t wait to try this one out Katrina!

  13. How did you know?? This is my desert island food! Good luck in your new kitchen <3

  14. I agree with Laura. This looks like a meal in itself. This is one of those days, when I could get that whole bowl—no chips just the dip. I had a waffle for breakfast hoping that would quell those I COULD and WiLL EAT EVERTHING TODAY . It didn’t do the treat. I have made it thru 2/3 of the day with only eating an additional low calorie yogurt. Do not ask me why I am torturing myself by reading a few food blogger recipes. Sigh

  15. Congrats on the new job! I just stumbled upon your blog and I’m loving it. Dip is always a great way to celebrate πŸ™‚
