This Avocado Spinach Artichoke Dip pushed my drool button. Yummy stuff and simple to prepare...


2 large avocados, mashed

5 oz fresh baby spinach, coarsely chopped

1 (14oz) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

1 clove garlic, grated

1 lemon, juice and zest

salt to taste

Mix everything and enjoy!
You could also add 1/4 cup crumbled bacon,
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and or
1/4 cup mayonnaise.

Prayers to all those suffering in Mexico from the earthquake and in Puerto Rico from the hurricane. God Bless them for all those people are going through and for the super heroes who are helping them!




All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

Miniature Golf Day
             (^ Tucker age 10)
Miniature golf is wildly popular by adults and children. It's a great date for couples, young and old.  It's a great place to hold a birthday party for kids. You don't have to be good at miniature golf. With twists, turns, and a variety of obstacles, your score is partially the result of luck. And, that's half of the fun of it.  

Take someone with you today to play a round or two of miniature golf.

We certainly hope that your day is up to par!
