Caramelized Onion Dip

What a great summer!  I loved having all three of our girls home!  We just took all three to Baylor this past weekend.  Annie is a senior, Jenna is junior and Meg is a freshman.  I love that they are all at Baylor and I love that they are together.  I was telling friends today that I have a serious case of FOMO - "Fear of Missing Out".  I love they are together.  Annie cooked everyone dinner Sunday night before they walked to find their classes.  As a mom, I LOVE that!  I am just so excited for them and I know God has amazing plans for all three!

I enjoyed cooking different fun, new recipes this summer.  I didn't think we had as many family "sit-down" meals as I had hoped but it was all good.  I will try to keep posting on occasion.  I need to eat healthier so I will try to find some new, yummy, healthy recipes to share.

We were going to a friend's pool to swim the week before the girls left.  I didn't have much time and needed a quick appetizer.  I had all of these ingredients on hand.  And wow, we loved it.  This Caramelized Onion Dip from was the bomb.
