cinq à sept

Today was a very hectic day. Not only am I preparing for a business trip, but on top of that, we are anticipating an important wedding next weekend...plus not to mention trying to sell our condo and looking for a new house all at once...it all seems to be moving so fast.

After a long day out, we decided that we needed to unwind - and the perfect place to do that would be on our balcony. We armed ourselves with drinks, snacks, and good conversation. We talked about houses, weddings, and what my beloved would be cooking for himself while I'm away on business next week (starting tomorrow). We had to set some ground rules as I didn't want to read (on the blog) that he's been eating pizza and hot dogs all week. I expect his culinary skills to come forward and awe us all - not to mention I'm hoping for a nice 'welcome back' dinner when I return on Thursday evening.

Along with the great drinks, we snacked on a simple, yet flavorful feta-sun dried tomato dip. It was a quick throw together but it turned out great and I've been asked to make this again - I've also been told that it's good enough for company. Who am I to argue??

Feta & Sun dried tomato Dip

1 medium block of feta
2 tbsp cream cheese
1 tbsp chopped sun dried tomatoes
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp ground fennel

Microwave feta cheese in a bowl until soft enough to mix. Add cream cheese and mix until creamy. Add remaining ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined.
Enjoy with pita chips and assorted veggies.
