Fresh Fage French Onion Dip

I did not end up watching tv last night but I didn’t go to bed for hours either.  I also did not eat my coconut butter snack.

Instead I had it for breakfast.

The Artisana Cacao Bliss packet was delicious!  The taste and texture reminded me of crumbly chocolate frosting.  Plus it was super filling.  I have two more of the packets and I’m very much looking forward to them.  And yes, that is a soda in the back of the picture; breakfast didn’t happen until near noon.  As it always goes the day after a migraine, my eats were all over the place today.

I got up late in a daze, made some important school calls, and then rushed out of the house to run time-sensitive errands.  By the time I made my way to Wegman’s it was after 4:00 and I was starving.  Hot bar to the rescue.

Asian wokery veggies, watermelon, and pineapple.

A little bit of sweet and sour pineapple chili chicken plus a Thai chicken spring roll.

And I snagged these adorable cupcake gummies from the bulk bins.

They were like little vanilla-berry pillows.

Dinner round 1 was a taco salad.

A romaine base topped with chopped green pepper, black beans, a handful of crushed Beanitos, chopped Cabot 50% light sharp cheddar, and a big scoop of Wegman’s pineapple salsa.

I gave my bowl a 30 second nuke in the microwave a few bites in and it made it even better.  I think I prefer Wegman’s version of the pineapple salsa to Newman’s Own’s; the sweetness and the spice are both a little less intense.

Dinner round 2 was lightened up chips and dip.

I’ve been craving french onion dip (with freshly caramelized onions!) for days so I decided to try my hand a lighter version.  I included the recipe for the dip at the bottom of this post.  It was really delicious!

Dessert was a mini pack of strawberry-filled koala cookies and a serving of Skinny Cow Peanut Butter Cream Filled Chocolates.

Both were good, but I have got to cut back on the sugar.  I have been soooooo hungry this week and it’s driving me crazy.

Adam has been out-of-town the past few days and he gets back tonight = yay!!!!!  We have two fun days planned this weekend and I can’t wait.

Fresh Fage French Onion Dip, serves 1-2 (Or more, if you’re into smaller – i.e. 2-3 Tbsp – servings.  For 1-2 people this recipe makes a large enough bowl of dip to really scoop your chips into.)

  1. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add butter and oil to heated pan.  When butter is completely melted, stir in the onion and pinch of salt.  Cook 5 – 7 minutes until onions caramelize, stirring occasionally.  Remove caramelized onions from heat and let cool for 1 – 3 minutes before adding to yogurt.
  2. Place yogurt in a large bowl.  Add onions, Worcestershire, onion powder, and remaining salt and stir until well-combined.  Serve with carrot sticks or ruffled chips.

What is your favorite kind of dip?  I’m a buffalo chicken dip girl myself, gotta embrace the homeland!
