Spinach Artichoke Dip

I made this at Christmas and meant to post it, but I forgot.  It is SO good!  It's a yummy recipe for any type of gathering.  Just looking at the recipe makes me want to fix it!

Spinach Artichoke Dip

14 oz can artichoke hearts drained and chopped
10 oz frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 1/2 cups shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

Mix everything saving about 1/2 cup Monterrey cheese. Spread in 1 qt baking dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 – 20 min.


Do you like bananas?  I don't like the way bananas feel in my mouth, but I do like the taste of bananas.  I suppose I have a weird texture complex.  I feel the same way about oatmeal, but love foods with oatmeal in them.  I guess we all have oddities and I will be the first to admit that I probably have more than most people.  Is it odd that I sometimes I like to have breakfast for dinner.  Absoultely NOT!  Here's a recipe for Banana Pancakes.  These are good for breakfast OR dinner!  I'm sorry I don't have a picture of this one.

Banana Pancakes

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 over ripe bananas, mashed

Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vegetable oil, and bananas.  Stir flour mixture into banana mixture; batter will be slightly lumpy.  Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot.
