Happy Mothers Day!

Mothers Day for me is bittersweet since I lost my mom a little over a year ago, but I do my best to make it good for me and my boy. This year the inlaws cooked a big Mothers Day dinner for everyone. Grilled steaks, baked potatoes, salads, ice cream cake. I mean the works. I was told I didn't have to bring anything but I just can't go empty handed to things like that, so I made my famous spinach dip.

Diva Dip as follows:

Amy's Spinach Dip
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 tsp minced garlic
1 box frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 cup of sour cream
2 Tbsp mayo
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
1 roasted red pepper, chopped
1 envelope of dry ranch dressing mix
1 can of water chestnuts, chopped
a couple turns of fresh ground black pepper

Mix all together well and chill.
