birthday edition

I am not a genius, and if you are an accomplished digital scrapbooker, or a PhotoShop whiz, this is not really all that. But hey, the majority of mankind can probably appreciate my efforts here. See, Miss Kacie turns 21 at midnight tonight. The big bash is tonight, and than at 11p she and 11 friends are heading out to paint the town in a limo so she can celebrate in a BAR at the stroke of midnight. Pretty cool for her. She is the last of the Mohican's to finally be of age. All the little "article" titles relate to her and her B'day, her co-op job etc. I plan to put this in a document frame tonight and set it out at the party. I have also been busy making some of her favorite dishes, at her request.

Number one: Vegetable Pizza. She loves it, and no one else in my family will make it. I love it too! I just add the Salad Dressing mix to sour cream, but otherwise, I make it basically like this vegetable pizza recipe. Her next request was the spinach dip from Tastefully Simple. She wanted hers with cut up bagels. Check. That is good stuff too. And EASY! Moving on, I made something else that I tasted at a Christmas party last year:

Baked Parmesan Dip

2-8oz pkgs of softened cream cheese
1/2 cup of mayo
2 cups of grated Parmesan cheese
2/3 cup of chopped onion ( I do a little bit less)
I also add a few dashes of garlic powder

Mix all together; spread into an ungreased baking pan. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

This is tremendous. Take it to your next party and prepared to be asked for this recipe. Now, I may have been a bit selfish in making it for tonight b/c I really doubt Kacie will touch this one. Oh well. More for me.

I tried on my most trendy outfit and I think I look pretty good. I am sure when I get there and see all the 20 somethings, I will be mortified and return to my real persona: mini van driving, potty training, laundry doing....mom!
