If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I am a fan of quick, easy and delicious. Not everything I makes the cut, for sure. Today the kids and I got together with some school friends for an afternoon at the pool. If kids are around, I usually like to bring a dessert, mostly so that THEY eat it and not me! But, since I knew us moms would be in our bathing suits, it was better to keep temptation far away!

I decided to bring veggies and a dip. But what dip?My neighbor recommended I try this sundried tomato dip. Problem solved!

Now, this dip is so easy and so effortless, I will have write about something else in this post. Yes, it was THAT easy. Combine, cream cheese, sour cream, and mayo with sun-dried tomatoes, tabasco and scallions and you’re done. It took longer to chop the veggies I was serving with the dip!


I had the usual carrots and celery, but as I examined my full refrigerator, I found cucumbers, radishes and asparagus that needed to be eaten up soon. In my excitement over restocking our bare fridge after two weeks of vacation, you could say I bought a little too much! But, the veggies went perfectly with the sun-dried tomato dip and they were enjoyed thoroughly by the poolside.

All I needed to cap the day was a mai tai and my man beside me! Oh yeah, I’ll save that story for later!
