Artichoke Dip

Dip: Brewco, Manhattan Beach

Spent Saturday afternoon at Manhattan Beach, CA and managed to get my favourite dip for review.

Dip #2 – BJs (plus the cliffhanger….)

It’s about time for another post on my favorite appetizer.

I went to BJs in Burbank a few weeks ago and decided to try their offering.
It was actually very tasty with good sized spinach leaves and a cheesy crust
On the bad side there was not enough for the amount of chips provided so I was left with chips left over without purpose. No picture, I will have to get better at that sort of thing.
3.5/5

Also, and this is not a full review but… Shockingly, I was in Starbucks at the weekend and was offered a sample of their S&A dip!  Who knew that they were into that sort of thing.  The small sample tasted okay but wasn’t enough to properly comment on so I will have to return for a proper taste test.  Watch this space…

So I guess I should lay down some sort of introduction into this blog; try and put some reasoning together for the various subject matter (if there is any) so that, in the unlikely event I might actually get some readers then they will know what they are letting themselves in for.

I have a number of interests and am generally a creative person without much of a platform to put that creativity so I decided that as I am a written word kind of guy that a blog might be a good outlet for that and it will allow various aspects of my life to come together in some useful way.

I generally compartmentalise my life so there is generally not much overlap between my interests, my work or personal life; that may be a good thing or a bad thing I’m not really sure (subject for another post?), either way I decided that it was time I tried to pull all the stuff in my head into some sort of thread that may make sense and here we are.

the subtitle above is “Unorganised comments about life,  gin,  artichoke dips,  cycling and photography” so I should probably explain where I am going with that; Continue reading “1st post – an explanation”
