Here’s the basic recipe for the spinach dip I brought in – I actually don’t measure everything, I usually go by taste. (Erin’s Recipe)
1 packet of Knorr’s Vegetable Soup/Dip Mix
16 ounces of Sour Cream
1 10-12 ounce package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 small can of water chestnuts, diced (or whole and you can chop them)
1 cup mayonnaise (I used Plain Greek Yogurt instead)
1 tablespoon hot sauce (Frank’s or Texas Pete)
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 chopped green onion (optional)
2 sourdough bread loves (whole not sliced)
–          Take the thawed spinach and press in between paper towels to remove water
–          Add all the ingredients in a bowl and stir thoroughly
–          Let stand overnight in the refrigerator
–          Before serving, take one loaf of bread and cut an oval out of the top
–          Fill with dip
–          Cut other loaf up in cubes and serve

The little people in the Bailey household built a snowman.

Beth got 40 inches! She is shoveling and shoveling some more!

Erin is driving to VT- and watching people sled down snow covered hillsides.





It has been a tough 2020. Instead of wallowing in the bad year, Kristy Gordon DiSanto and I are trying to teach Silvie the importance of doing good deeds at the holiday season. She is really liking it and asks each day what is next!

Following our good deed day tracker. Silvie made cookies with Daddy and we brought them to the firefighters on Old Statesville while Kristy donated a toy for Toys for Tots. Thanks guys for being first responders and everything you do!




World AIDS Day takes place on 1 December each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.
