Creamy Feta and Roasted Pepper Dip

feta dip with veggiesYesterday I went clothes shopping with my teenage daughter. She convinced me to try on a pair of skinny jeans. Well guess what? They didn’t look so skinny on me.

Surprise, surprise!

It could be the fact that we have a new kitchen and I feel the need to keep massive amounts of cheese in my new refrigerator in case anyone stops over. At last count, it was seven pounds to be exact. Pair that with several bottles of wine and assorted crackers in my pantry and you can have a party anytime. But you can also have a few too many late night snacks while watching reruns of Modern Family.

So I need a solution to my cheese dilemma. Well first, I can make sure I work out more. Secondly, I need a cheese appetizer that is easier on my hips. I decided to make this lighter feta cheese dip and eat it in moderation with plenty of veggies.

It is great for a party or football watching. I am not sure if it will get me into skinny jeans anytime soon but it sure tastes great paired with veggies.

Enjoy and have a happy weekend!
