Happy end of MoFo everyone! I'm finishing up today with a retrospective of the dips I pulled off this month. I didn't quite hit 31 dips in 31 days because I took 3 days off. But actually, I did 32 dips anyway. Here they are:
I started out with a sort of mish-mash-mezze:
1. Hummus, 2. Lebenah, 3. Muhammara, 4. Skordalia, 5. Baba ganoush, 6. Tzatziki
Check out this feast from days 3/4.
Then it was the Emperor's birthday so I made a mildly-mexi trio of dips for his party and then continued in that vein for one more day:
7. Salsa, 8. Guacamole, 9. Creamy bean dip, 10. Queso blanco dip
There's the queso blanco dinner. Yum!
Then we had nice fall weather for a couple of days and I made some autumn-centric dips:
11. Nutty Pumpkin Pie Dip, 12. Pomegranate-lime-ginger applesauce, 13. Cheezy beer dip, 14. Pizza dip (okay, that's not autumn-centric!), 16. Kabocha-shiitake dip
That pumpkin pie dip haunts my dreams. Ugh, so good.
Threw in another sweetie on a lazy day - 17. Chocolate-raspberry dessert dip
Then a quick jaunt over to asia for a few fusion dips:
18. Peanut satay, 19. Nuoc cham dip, 20. Cilantro-coconut pesto
I take back everything bad I've ever said about kebabs.
Things got crazy in my life around here so I stopped grouping and started just making whatever I could whenever I could! Including:
21. Carrot cake dip, 22. Buffalo dip, 23. Bleu dip, 24. Chip Shop Curry Dip, 25. Cheezy nacho dip, 26. Creamy pumpkin caramel dip, 27. Avocado pesto dip, 28. Roasted eggplant & cashew dip, 29. Several layer dip, 30. Super Lazy Bean Dip, 31. French Onion Dip, and 32. Peanut Butter Mousse.
Mmmm. Pesto. Dip. Avocadopestodip.
