With a farewell party for a couple of boatie/foodie friends tonight, I thought it the perfect occasion to try out an interesting recipe found on Dinner: A Love Story just the other day: Minty Pea Dip! Intriguing, right? Apparently, it's originally a Jamie Oliver crudité dip recipe including yogurt, so I'll have to try it that way next time, but tonight it lactose-free and getting smeared on baguette slices! Fingers-crossed for good reviews!!

Minty Pea Dip

1 cup frozen peas, thawed (or not...)
a handful of fresh mint leaves
~2 tablespoons fresh Parmesan
juice from half a lemon
1/3 cup olive oil

whirl the above ingredients in a food processor (or a broke-ass blender seeing as we're limited down here in paradise!) until it's the consistency of guacamole. Garnish with more Parmesan and serve with baguette slices, crustini and/or crudité. Enjoy!

Blank walls?

Then check out Wall Blank! They are revamping their website and just completed a sale of prints and photos that won't be available on the new site, so I snatched some up*

Coming soon to some walls in Pittsburgh:

*I'm hoping I snatched them up; the sale lasted through Sunday and I put them in my "cart" then but didn't click to purchase and pay until Monday afternoon... the payment's gone through but the site says the prints are currently unavailable so we'll see if them being in my "cart" Sunday actually reserved them for me before the site went offline-ish! Fingers crossed!!
