peanut butter dip...

Saturday, February 6, 2016
... is what I was serving when I spent the day on Friday cooking at work. I made it on Wed. when I got called in to work half a day for a co-worker who had some health issues and left early. The dip was served with apple slices: how can you go wrong with peanut butter and apples? This version was made creamier by the addition of yogurt, to make it more spreadable, so it would be easy to apply to anything you choose to pair it with. According to the info. we were given to share with consumers, no fat in the yogurt and lots of protein. And so easy you don't need a 'recipe' to put together!

Peanut Butter Dip

1 cup unflavored, fat free Greek yogurt
2 Tbs. honey
1/2 cup peanut butter

Mix. Serve. How simple is that?
I found that if you put the yogurt in the bowl and stir in the honey before adding the peanut butter it seems to work better: you are lot having such a hard time getting all the tenacious stuff off the bottom of the bowl to have it well blended. I was using the little bags of pre-sliced apples that are treated with something to keep them from browning. And just dipping the apples, putting them on a plate with a generous glob of the dip.

Someone told me recently a good easy way to keep sliced fruit from browning. Things like bananas and apples, that exposed to air quickly discolor and look less than palatable. Dip them in club soda. It does not change the flavor like lemon juice or pineapple juice, but will keep them from turning brown before being eaten.

And had more people do a U-turn, come back for the recipe to know how to make the dip than I think were wanting the instructions for the chili-mac that was on the same card. The chili was good, but going by the recipe was a little spicy for my preference. Probably due to the addition of some salsa which had enough heat in it to linger on the tongue. And truthfully, if you have made chili a couple of times, you probably don't use a recipe anyway, right? This one had elbow pasta added to it, which I had not thought of doing. Several customers commented they were from the North, and that is common there - sometimes called 'Cincinatti Chili'.
