I made this dip for my annual “Swap Party”  last night and it was a hit! More on the swap party in a second….

Tuesday night was Taco Tuesday in our house. I made some turkey tacos using my Homemade Taco Seasoning. To go with the tacos, I made Easy Mexican Rice and refried beans.

Yesterday’s breakfast was Fage yogurt, agave and berries.

After I took the kids to school, I went to spin class at the gym. I came home and set up for my swap party. Lunch was a big salad that consisted of romaine, avocado, tomatoes, cucumber, hard boiled egg, green onions, tuna and Girard’s Light Champagne Vinaigrette.

Then it was time for the Swap Party to begin! Just in case you’re not sure what a swap party is…you bring all your clothes/shoes/accessories that you don’t want or wear anymore and let everyone have at it! No rules….just take what you want. New clothes for free! :)

Everyone brings wine and an appetizer to share.

It is one of my favorite parties each year! Thank you Lisa for taking all the great photos (and for the brownies!).

Breakfast this morning rocked. Maybe because it was a bit different than my usual boring breakfasts.

I toasted half a whole wheat English muffin and topped it with avocado, a scrambled egg and tomatoes. I also had a half of a grapefruit. I loved it! I see a repeat coming….

I took the kiddos to school, went to a PTO meeting, then the gym for Total Barre & Body Workout class. Lunch was the same as yesterday except this time I was more civilized and ate it off a plate instead of the mixing bowl.

 Tonight I’m trying another new recipe. Stay tuned!

If you could turn any sandwich into a dip, what would it be?
