Good Morning!

Your spinach dip sounds wonderful. If I'm in a hurry I make ranch dip because it's quick but when I have a little spare time, I make spinach dip. My family loves it.

As promised, here's my BLT Pasta recipe. It's become a favorite around here and so many people have asked for the recipe I thought this would be the perfect place to post it.

Oh my! That looks so good. And how happy am I that it doesn't have mayo. Me and mayo don't agree these days... or rather, my unborn child and mayo don't agree. Bad things happen!!

My post will be up soon.
