While you guys watch the game, I’ll be over here eating easy spinach dip cheese sticks….
I have already convinced myself many times that my Buffalo Chicken Tortilla Roll Ups never fail – there isn’t a person who doesn’t like them. Recently I have started to believe that I have real friends again – my girls’ team. Don’t look at me so strange or have a bad opinion about me.

“Doesn’t every woman have her girlfriends?” you would think.
Probably every woman has them, but I haven’t had them for a long time. Many times (even too many) I was disappointed in people I used to believe in at some point. Most of all because I have pretty high expectations from those I will consider my friends. And I don’t have the habit of drinking coffees at popular spots, neither a conversation doesn’t go beyond fashion or kids.
It is true that David is now the center of my world…but in those moments I enjoy some different topics. I am still afraid to trust and open up completely. And I can no longer afford to be disappointed.
But the girls are aware of my high standards and it seems to me that they understand me. I hope they are…
In the name of friendship … I invited them to a little party and I made something easy and new.  Easy Spinach Dip Cheese Sticks, perfect party appetizer no matter the occasion.
