Over the Weekend


This weekend, I stayed with my dad and brother in a hotel. Some of the things we did included eating a burrito out of a styrofoam coffee cup, watching more than one Harry Potter movie, and in the process, I neglected my blog! Aah! Well, now I have something to write about. We walked around an outdoor mall. First of all, we got to watch a full grown man put himself into a small plastic box, then we moved on to  different shops. Later on (after my brother bought himself a giant multi-colored balloon hat, of course) we went into a place that did henna tattoos. I got one on my arm and I love it! The woman rubbed my arm with henna oil, then drew the tattoo, and finally sprayed it with a lemon sugar water mix. I noticed that the woman who did it had a green cone that held the henna ink. Now that I think about it, I remember seeing something just like it at the Indian grocery. Guess who will be experimenting with that…? A henna tattoo, two bags of taffy, a giant balloon hat, and three taco bowls later, we left. What a weekend.


Chive + Onion Cream Dip


You’ll need:

1 cup cream cheese

2 tablespoons blue, feta, or any other special soft cheese

1 teaspoon dried, chopped chives

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon salt


In a large bowl, whip together the cream cheese and soft cheese using a rubber spatula, whisk, or hand-held electronic whisk. Slow whipping speed and add chopped chives, onion and garlic powder, and salt. Serve with potato chips. Enjoy!


This recipe is great for summer get-togethers or anytime of the year. Until later! 🙂
