15 high school (um, and preschool, grade school, middle school) best friends.

I love my best friends. So, so much.
Shotgun shell Christmas lights just begged to enhance Baker's Good 'Ole Boy personality, ya think?
Artichoke dip that I made--all gone! This is a BIG deal for those that know my kitchen skills. Recipe below.
God has blessed me beyond words. My best friends are amazing!
1 14 oz. can of artichokes
2 c freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 c of mayonnaise
1. Drain artichokes well and coarsely chop. Toss in a bowl. (For me, it was easier to chop 'em in the bowl. Artichokes aren't exactly tough.)
2. Add mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese. Mix together.
3. Pour mixture into a oven-safe dish (not very deep) and cook at 350 for 30 minutes, or until the edges are bubbling and brown.
Serve with flatbread or chips... This weekend Tostido's seemed to prove successful.
