Kids need to watch their #&!@* mouths: Cussing commonplace — Really…? Kids need to watch THEIR mouth? What about US adults? If adults don’t cuss and don’t allow cussing to enter the household via the TV, ‘net or music, kids will not have to watch their mouths. As the Spartans said, “IF.” This really shouldn’t be a NEWS article. Turn the TV on primetime, click through a few channels, and you’ll see exactly why.

And a recipe — which dh will use as a dip for his carrot sticks tomorrow:

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip

4 handfuls spinach, washed well to remove all grit
4 canned artichoke hearts, drained, rinsed and drained again
1/3 cup Vegenaise (vegan mayo)
1/3 cup water buffalo yogurt (or other safe non-dairy alternative if you like — or vegan cream cheese)
pinch hot red pepper flakes
freshly ground black pepper to taste
salt to taste
vegan parmesan if you like
enough rice milk or soy milk to get mixture creamy

Mix. Bake everything in dish at 350 degrees, 15 minutes. Transfer to food processor, process, cook 20 minutes more or until thick and bubbly.

Soooo good with potato chips or tortilla chips or other chippy substance you prefer. Or eat healthier and serve with vegetable crudites instead.
