Recently we got together with some friends to celebrate my BFF Lauri’s House Anniversary- every year she has people over on the anniversary of when she bought her first house.
We got all dressed up and I was excited to wear my new Stella & Dot necklace, Campari. I love their stuff and wish I had the guts to become a Stylist…anyway, I digress!
For the party, I made my “famous” spinach dip at the request of Lauri. It’s such a simple recipe and has always proven to be a real crowd pleaser.
Plus it’s easy to transport. I put the bread in a gallon ziploc, the dip in a tupperware, and assemble once I arrive.
Once all the guests arrived, we gathered around her dining room table for great food and conversation. Lauri’s mom made “sub dip” which was literally whatever you’d expect on a sub chopped up, mixed together, and served on sliced bread.
Unfortunately I did not try it because it had a lot of red meat, which I do not eat. But it did get rave reviews.
Recently I found out that my favorite Spinning instructor of all time, Mark, is Lauri’s next door neighbor. Small world! He was at the party too and was a riot.
I also met a girl who knew one of the former teachers at my school!
The star of the show came out soon after…Dunkaroo Dip! Do you remember Dunkaroo’s from when you were a kid? The graham crackers served alongside the vanilla frosting?
Oh, so amazing, was definitely a childhood favorite of mine. Well, it’s apparently a popular Pinterest recipe!
This was sooo incredible served with pretzels, animal crackers, and, um, sugar cookies ;).
We had a blast meeting new people, hearing funny stories, enjoying some treats, and laughing it up. Thanks, Lauri, for a great night!
Tell me about a “small world” experience you’ve had!
What is your go-to appetizer for parties?
