We decided to go on a road trip for June's Supper Club.

My husband and I were out of town unfortunately, but from the video they sent me privately - trust me, they had a good time....

DENISE & GREG HOST SUPPER CLUB! APRIL 2019

So looking forward to our next Supper Club get-together~

We're meeting at Denise and Greg's home - - - AND IT WILL FINALLY BE SPRINGTIME!

Can't wait to enjoy some good food with some great company...

MENU: 

GREEK LAYERED DIP with Chips

PORK TENDERLOIN
ROASTED SMASHED POTATOES
GREEN BEANS with grape tomatoes

MIXED GREEN SALAD with Balsamic Vinegar Dressing

SPECIALTY DRINK - Deep Eddy's, Grapefruit and Orange Patron

DESSERT - Guinness Cake

GREEK LAYERED DIP

This dip is a healthy Greek version of the old Mexican 7 layer dip. But, it does not short-change in flavor.  In fact, I think it's better than the Mexi one.  I made it for a party once, and I loved it so much I immediately made another one just for ME!  It's THAT good!

Hope my Supper Club friends agree!

1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened (I always use low fat)
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 cups hummus
1 cup chopped cucumber (I use hothouse or English)
1 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup chopped pitted Kalamata olives
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (I use fresh Greek feta - it's SO much better than the pre-crumbled!)
1/3 cup sliced green onions
Pita chips and/or multigrain tortilla chips




In medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, and garlic with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and combined.

Spread cream cheese mixture into a deep 9-inch pie plate, or shallow serving dish.

Evenly spread hummus on cream cheese layer.


Top with cucumber, tomato, olives, feta cheese, and green onions.




Cover and refrigerate 2 to 24 hours. Serve with pita chips and/or multigrain tortilla chips.

A few shots from our fabulous evening:
