Friday Night Dates :: Week 27


I love the movie Love Actually.
We watch it every holiday
and it gets us into the holiday spirit.

It's filled with romance and well, love.

We didn't puree the dip in this recipe
because we didn't want the food processor
to wake up the children.
Date night hinges on the fact
that they are sound asleep in their beds.

It was yummy, they slept,
and we feasted and snuggled.

It was a great date on the couch!

Here's the recipe...

Roasted Red Pepper Dip

* 2 (7 ounce) jars roasted red peppers , drained and patted dry (or you can roast your own)
* 8 sun-dried tomatoes , halves soaked in hot water for 5 minutes,drained,and patted dry
* 2 cloves garlic , minced
* 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
* 2 tablespoons fresh parsley , chopped
* 4 ounces cream cheese , softened
* 1/2 cup sour cream
* salt and pepper
* toasted pita bread, triangles or tortilla chips , to serve


1. In food processor, puree peppers, tomatoes, garlic, lemon juice, and parsley until mixture is smooth.
2 Add cream cheese, sour cream, and salt and pepper.
3 Puree until smooth.
4 Serve with pita or tortilla chips, or fresh veggie dippers.

Do romance find you over the weekend?

Watched "Love Actually" too. It's fabulous to see all of the different types of love at all levels of society unfold in this funky movie. Of course, the amazing dance scene with Hugh Grant is a hoot, too. Great for getting in a holiday and a romantic spirit!
