Sex and Artichokes

(Shaking my fist in the air in indignation, letting the unsightly arm flaps wobble)Damn You Shawna!

I say that with all love and affection! The cruel, cruel woman made Golden Artichoke dip while we were up at the cabin. The MMMmmmm mm mm m! Artichoky salty goodness, all scooped up on a Tostito chip dip that is going to prove my downfall.

FB and I managed to score a Babysitter last night and went out to play some friendly (yeah, riiiight) Texas hold'em at a work friends. Snacks were requested so lil'ol me thought "A ha! Artichoke dip!". Bad move; bad, bad move! It's the cooked reheatable kind, and since yesterday was Sat and today is Sunday, can you guess what I have been doing?

Can a girl live on Artichoke Dip alone?

Me thinks not, but I'm willing to give it a damn good try! And so y'all can suffer along with me, here's the recipe:

1 envelope Lipton ® Recipe Secrets ® Golden Onion Soup Mix
1 can (14 oz.) artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 cup Hellmann's ® or Best Foods ® Real Mayonnaise
1 container (8oz.) sour cream
1 cup shredded Swiss or mozzarella cheese (about 4 oz.)

1. Preheat oven to 350°. In 1-quart casserole, combine all ingredients.
2. Bake 30 minutes or until heated through.
3. Serve with your favorite dippers.

VARIATION: For a Cold Golden Artichoke Dip, omit Swiss cheese. Stir in, if desired, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese. Do not bake. Also terrific with Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Savory Herb with Garlic Soup Mix, Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix, or Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Mushroom Soup Mix.
Makes: 3 cups dip
Preparation Time: 5 Minute(s)
Cook Time: 30 Minute(s)

(BTW, if you double the recipe don't add quite as much sour cream or mayo as it says, just a few table spoons less would be best, IMO)

On a totally different note - We have the contractor starting Monday week. Oh yeah baby, new bathrooms incoming!!! Of course since we decided to go the labour/small material route, and supply the major fixtures ourselves, we have been out trying to make a final decision on tile.

But while we were out perusing shower cubicles (we are debating a contained fiberglass unit versus full tile) I noticed a little note on a shelf, and thinking that, of course, its a note from Home Depot about the shower I pick it up and read.

Hrmmm, NOT a note from Home Depot.

In fact it's a note from a guy called Ben, who reckons that you are looking a bit stressed and really need to get in contact with him to let off some steam by letting him suck your cock. I'm paraphrasing a little bit, but that was the gist of it anyway. All comers, married, single, straight, gay, he wasn't worried.

You hear of hanging around in men's bathrooms, glory holes, cumdump's, all of those lovely, slightly squicky things that some folks will go to to get their sex fix. But is this the new pickup spot of the millennium? - Display shower cubicles at Home Depot?
