Recipe for Spinach /Artichoke Dip

A lady on Facebook shared this recipe. This is one of my favorite dips ! I am making it for the Super Bowl.

1  10 oz. Package Birds Eye Steamfresh Creamed Spinach (  thawed and drained)
1  can artichoke hearts ( drain and chop )
1/2  c. mayo
1/2  c. sour cream  (  I use light sour cream whenever I can )
1  c. Parmesan cheese (  divided )
dash hot sauce
1/2  tsp. garlic powder
1  c. Mozzarella cheese

Cook spinach in the bag about 2 minutes in the microwave , til it is thawed. Then mix the spinach , artichoke hearts, mayo, sour cream, garlic powder, hot sauce and the 3/4 c. Parmesan cheese .  Put in a 1  1/2 qt. casserole dish . Sprinkle with the Mozzarella cheese and the rest of the Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350  for 30 - 35 minutes or til bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips or toasted bread .

OK, Winter is HERE !

OK, I think winter is here ! It has been very, very windy and cold here in central PA. We have had snow squalls go through the last couple of days. Last night I looked outside before I went to bed  and the ground was covered with snow.  We got about 1/2 " . Then about 3 a.m. Jim's cell phone rang  and he got called out to work on the roads for the Township. He got back home about 9 a.m. He thought we got about 1 1/2 " . I thought the wind was to calm down but I guess not yet. The wind blowing makes it feel even colder . I thought I would take my walk this morning. But after I opened the door  and felt how cold it was I changed my mind ! I decided to use my bike inside where it is warm ! Much better idea !
