Hellllloooo Bagels! That’s what I shouted when I opened up a package of Bagel Thins that arrived today.  I immediately knew what my afternoon snack was all about.

I spotted the new Cinnamon Raisin Bagel Thins at the store already, but resisted getting them because they’re not whole wheat. Well, I am over that ish because they are super tasty!

I also chugged a Vitawater and had some blubes at some point today. I deleted the picture because I am dumb.

I cooked blended up this recipe in my head yesterday when I was brainstorming good green foods to make for St.Patrick’s Day. I love holiday themed foods and have made green eggs & ham for this St. Patty’s in the past.

Today I made White Bean Dip, but Green! I hesitate to call it “Green Bean Dip” since it’s not made of “green beans”, but I kinda love that name more.

Main ingredients: White beans, 10 oz. frozen spinach, 1 Tb. olive oil, ! Tb. minced garlic, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese to taste

First I blended the beans and spices. You can use a food processor, but I had to use my blender since I can’t find my processor?! Minor speed bump.

I microwaved the spinach and squeezed out the water. After the beans and spices were blended I stirred in about 3/4 of the spinach.

This would be great with a crusty hunk of sourdough too. Luckily, I have a big ol’ loaf of Boudin Sourdough Bread because it’s now sold at Costco!

    It doesn’t look appetizing – spinach and beans. But I am willing to give it a try because pictures of food can be misleading sometimes.
    Bagels – I’m not a big fan of them. I like buns or rolls. Yum.

    I have avoided your blog because your persistent use of the word ‘naner’ makes you sound like a deranged five year old. I decided to give you another chance when I stumbled across your blog. I didn’t read past the word ‘blubes’. Is this the devolution of the English language in action, or are you just think you are charming for writing like a child?

    oooh that dip looks great!
    I’ve been looking for those cinnamon raising bagel thins but haven’t found them anywhere!! I thought I could do the sandwich thins but they’ve got splenda in them which I’m not so fond of. Gotta keep looking!
