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!

I don’t believe “skinny jeans” is my goal, but I like this dip. It’s great that these ingredients are in my fridge, now. Thanks!

This looks amazing! I love that you lightened it up…that means I can eat twice as much, right?!? :-) Pinning this to make later!

My skinny jeans are starting to look not so skinny on me either so I think I need to replace some of my snacking habits with this dip!

Kim,
Yes you can use yogurt instead as some other bloggers make it that way. You are funny! No cheese belly here…only a muffin top..lol
