Htipiti – Feta Pepperoncini Dip

I have no idea how to say “Htipiti.”  So let’s just call this Feta Pepperoncini Dip.  Or heck, just Feta Dip is fine.  I mean really, do I have any other feta dips? And quite honestly, pepperoncini is no easier to say or write than Htipiti.

But first I would like to talk about a couple of things.  Lets take a closer look at the little bowl that the dip is in.  Does anyone recognize it?  Does it bring back wonderful memories of your childhood?  It does for me – its vintage Pyrex!  I love this stuff so much and I have wanted to get some for the longest time and last weekend I found a set at a garage sale for 8 dollars and I was so excited!  My mom had some that was brown and gold.  I am going to try to post the pictures of the other bowls as well, but it depends on whether I feel like uploading them from my camera in the AM – he he.  The other two are a mossy green and they match my kitchen  I looked the bowls up on eBay last night and just one of them was going for 24 dollars….score!  I can talk a lot about some of the great finds I get at garage sales on the blog.  You will be amazed…my husband always is..I think:-)  Actually when I talk about it in public I think he wants to run and hide.

And hey, I do the rest of my shopping at Nordies so don’t judge me on the garage sales alone:-).

So that gives me a great segue into something that I am going to do on the blog.  Once a month starting sometime in July I am going to give away some treasure that I find at  garage sales to one commenter on my blog.  I am going to call it Garage Sale Giveaways.  It will be something really good, I promise you…and I might even give the winner a choice of prizes.   It might be an almost new Le Creuset dutch oven (not kidding you, I paid a dollar for it and they retail for 200 something,) or a beautiful pottery tea kettle that I just really haven’t used, but it was too nice to not buy.  I have no idea what the prizes will end up being, but stay tuned – I think this will be a really fun feature on the blog.  You can live anywhere to claim your prize.  I will mail it to you if you aren’t local (although I have no idea how to mail anything larger than a letter.  How much are stamps these days, anyways – 32 cents?)

On to this dip.  We loved it and I adapted it from the original recipe in Southern Living because I just wanted it creamier, so I added the Greek yogurt.  We ate it with tortilla chips (yes, I know those are Mexican,) and I thought I made a lot but it’s gone now.  The next night I roasted up some Greek chicken thighs and some tomatoes, peppers and onions and we made wraps with the sauce.  So good!  A great spicy dip for the 4th and definitely one to add to the party rotation!
