Another dish that I've been meaning to make for a long time now is Spinach and Artichoke Dip. I almost always order it when we go out. Ok, well not almost always because most of the places around here don't have Spinach and Artichoke Dip. But when we go somewhere like TGI Fridays or somewhere out of town, I order it :)

It's just one of those dishes that I order and think "this is something I could make at home" and then never make it. haha yay, go me. I'm so forgetful... or lazy... one of the two ;)

But since this weeks #SundaySupper theme is "Cheese, Cake and Cheesecake", I thought that this Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Dip with Parmesan Crisps would be perfect!  P.S I'm hosting this week's #SundaySupper! YAY!! There are some great recipes today {links below}

My BFF, Crystal, came over today and we worked on a few recipes and this was one of them. I must say that I am pretty happy with the way this Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Dip turned out. It's creamy and full of Spinach and Artichoke, just the way I like it. 

Oh and the Parmesan Crisps are just perfect with it. I also bought a bag of crisp bagel chips to go along with the dip but the Parmesan Crisps were a nice snack with it.
