I know! I know! I’ve not posted anything in a while and all I can say to that is – I needed a break. Now, I’m back. Yep – it is that simple. You know how it is. A day goes by here and there and all of a sudden two weeks have flown by in the new year. The old virtual crickets noise was getting really loud here at Something’s Burning. Sorry about that. And, to get back into the swing of things – here is a recipe for the upcoming NFL playoff and Super Bowl Sunday parties you are planning. It is really easy because you throw it all in the crock pot, stir it, turn it on, and walk away. Ya gotta love that!
Crock Pot Spinach Artichoke Dip
4 (6 oz) cans artichoke hearts, chopped and drained
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
4 oz. chopped green chilies
1 1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 1/3 cup sour cream
16 oz. jar salsa
2 (10 oz.) packages frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
Cook in crock pot on High 1 to 2 hours. Serve with vegetables or tortilla chips or pita chips.

Why Salad Week? Because it is hot outside! I fear if I turn on the oven I will spontaneously combust. So not the way I want to exit this world. Believe me, if you’ve had a hot flash, you believe in spontaneous combustion or the possibility that it exists. I swear I smelled smoke the other night.
Any-who……..Here’s a humdinger of a recipe. My family loves this and you can actually bulk it up with some chicken or steak and make it into a meal instead of a side dish. Make the dressing the night before and you’ll have a quick easy salad in no time.
Mimi’s Spinach Salad
Dressing: (Make ahead and refrigerate overnight) Mix well.
1 cup oil
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup ketchup
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup sugar
Fresh spinach, torn into pieces (if you buy the pre-bagged stuff, use two bags) or two fresh bunches, washed first so no one gets salmonella.
Crumbled cooked bacon – this depends on how many people you’re feeding but generally I use two slices per person.
Boiled Eggs, sliced – one or two eggs per person
Green Bell Peppers, sliced thin and bite size – one large pepper is usually good. (I sometimes use a red or yellow pepper for color).
Sliced fresh mushrooms (1 pkg.)
Mix in large bowl and pour dressing over all and toss. Serve immediately.
Ya’ll Enjoy! I’ll post another salad tomorrow.
