Three Ingredient Artichoke Dip

I am lucky to have grandkids
that will eat almost anything.

So.....
What sounds like a fun treat?
Artichoke Dip!
Seriously!
Artichoke Dip!

All you need is:
 1 can of water packed artichokes.
1 cup of grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup of mayo.
 Chop the artichokes.
Stir in the parmesan and mayo.
Heat for 5 minutes in the microwave on high.
or put into a mini crock pot
and heat through.

I served this with crackers this time
but I usually serve it with french bread pieces.
So, how did the kids fare that will
"eat almost anything"?
You will notice we are eating in our
Princess clothes.
Thing One
says:
ART - AH - CHOKE
It makes you want to CHOKE when 
you eat it!
Thing Two
The "bride" didn't like it much either.
Yeah...
Welcome to the real world, Nana. 
What's this?
Even Rosetta looks a little stunned!

Never fear-
Nothing wasted here.
MyHero polished it off.

  4. Sounds great, Diana! I love artichokes! I'm saving this recipe. It will definitely come in handy for my own parties and when I have to bring something to someone's house. I buy those same canned artichokes to use in my lunch salad. : )

  5. Now that our big Halloween party is done, I'm having my parents, sister and nephews over this afternoon to see the Halloween decorations. I think I need to run to the store for these ingredients. YUM!

  7. Good Morning Diana, I have enjoyed catching up with you this morning. Your Apple Chunk cake sounds yummy with a cup of hot coffee. Your dip, well I don't know, but I love the girl's faces. Of course, I know nana is enjoying herself with them. I bet you don't have a dull moment. I will get back to normal when I get my actual reading glasses and not my cheapies. The eyes are healing. Football is the main topic here in our area with the KC Chiefs being 7-0 going into todays game. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  11. Ha! I was one of those rare kids growing up that would eat any veggie you put in front of me. And, if in dip for the better! Thanks for sharing the recipe. My youngest actually likes it, so this would be a quick hot snack for her to make while at the university.

  16. I find what the grandchildren will eat at home, they won't eat here as Mom Mom and Gramps always have goodies to eat that their parents don't. My daughter and her husband are funny, because although they don't have certain goodies in their home...they too like come here and eat. Love the "girls" expressions.

  17. Oh the look on their sweet little faces --- I'm sure you bend over backwards to have fun with them - I know I would. They are so wonderful, wish I could met them in person, feel like I know them already.
    So glad you hero liked them dip - I love that dip and could eat all of it. I know the grand kids love coming to Nana Diana and Papas house. Have a great day

  23. Oh, I'm actually very hungry at the moment, so I think I'm getting off the computer to go eat! This topped it off for me! Thank you so much for coming to visit me; my mom died 27 years ago, but it's always nice to bring someone close to you through poetry. Enjoy your week! Anita
