I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend full of cookouts, relaxation and fun! I'm also hoping that you all got to thank a soldier for their service. Many of the important people that I wanted to thank are in different states, so Facebook posts had to suffice. :-)
Sorry for no Monday post too... I've been battling a migraine all weekend which means I didn't get to have much fun or be on the computer too much. On the bright side, I did get some good puppy cuddles in!
Also because of the headache, I'm going to cheat a bit and revisit a popular recipe from the summer of 2010. It's a crowd-pleaser. I mean, as long as you don't plan to kiss anybody!
Dragon's Breath Dip
2 heads garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 oz. Brie cheese
1 (3-oz.) small pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash or two of fresh cracked pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut top 1/2" off the top of the garlic heads and remove some of the loose papery skin, leaving the heads intact. Place each on a piece of aluminum foil, drizzle each with the olive oil, and wrap tightly. Bake at 350 degrees 50-60 minutes, until the garlic is very soft and begins to brown. Cool until easy to handle and squeeze each head to remove the soft roasted cloves.
In a food processor, process Brie cheese and cream cheese with the salt, pepper, and garlic cloves. Refrigerate several hours to blend flavors. Serve with melba toast, crackers, crustini or the like.
