Spinach Feta Dip

I had to sample it to make sure it was edible:)

We went to Alex's parent's house on Monday for dinner.  We were celebrating Dakin's birthday!  Susan made yummy potatoes, cesar salad, and steaks.  It was awesome.  Oh, and how could I forget the apple pie.  I didn't get to eat the crust, but the filling was delicious.

I love the time spent at family dinner gatherings.  It is relaxing and always full of good conversation.

I brought an appetizer to share.  It was super easy to throw together.  I served it with tortilla chips and cucumber slices.   I think pita chips would have been a better pick for those who do eat gluten.

My picky husband does not like feta or cucumbers so he opted out of eating this one!

Speaking of my picky husband, I just finished a great book that was recommended by my friend Lauren.  It is a good read for any wife, but especially ones that struggle with balancing attention from her husband and his attention with his job.  Here is a link to read a preview of Her Husband is Known in the Gates.
