{Recipe} Creamy Spinach Dip – Labor Day & Football perfect!

spinachdipWe’re (Katie & team) still on August break here at KDO (coming back next week with a full post and happenings for fall), but seeing that this weekend is Labor Day AND the start of fall football I thought I would send you a quick scrump-dilly-umptious recipe that you can bring to a BBQ, tailgating or game day party, or even camping (if you keep it chilled)…OR to keep in your own fridge as a great snack throughout the week.

This is hands down a crowd-pleaser that no one will think twice about asking wearily if it’s “healthy”- a.k.a. jam packed with nutrient goodness to get the glow in the skin and the pooper moving – because it tastes so creamy, rich, and flavorful.

Eat up and I’ll catch you next week as we dive into fall and all that I’ve got ready for you, ooo girl it’s gonna be good.
