Last year my friend Karen gave birth to an adorable baby named Jocelyn. When I was invited to Jocelyn’s 1st birthday party, I of course offered to bring a dip. I had previously made them a Beatles Dip which didn’t turn out as good as I would have liked and so in addition to bring something for the party, I also wanted to redeem myself. The party was beach themed so I had to bring my K-Game.
This was the first big party I brought a dip to and I was excited to see the response the dip elicited. Once my friend Karen set the dip on the table I watched people approach the table and try to figure out what they were looking at. It was pretty awesome to see their reaction once the realized it was a dip. Some were amazed at how it looked and got tons of compliments on how good it tasted. It was a hit! I chatted with some nice folks (who might be reading this blog now - hi! ) on techniques and future venture ideas. It was pretty rad.
Earlier in the kitchen I had a 92 year old woman ask me if the beans were peanut butter, thinking it was a cake. When I told her it was not peanut butter, but beans, I think it blew her mind just bit.
The weather in Florida has been absolutely dreary with tons of rain the last few weeks, particularly this weekend so a sunny beach theme was a nice reminder of what we have been missing. As I write this, my city is finally being cleared of a tornado warning.
