It’s almost New Years!! Who else is as ridiculously excited as I am? I’ve always loved, LOVED New Years Eve. For one, you can drink champagne ALL DAY LONG and no one judges you. Two, you can wear an obscure amount of sparkles, sequins and glitter without being mistaken for Ke$ha. And three, well, do you really need more reasons than that?
All of my past New Years have been quite eventful so I’m SO happy to be having a low-key celebration here in Charleston with my hubs and in-laws. One of the best things about a low-key, at home partay is that you don’t have to die of a horrible hangover on the 1st and you can gorge on homemade apps! This year, I’m whipping up my new favorite app of all time, this creamy eggplant dip.
- 1 medium eggplant
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 cup (4 ounces) non-fat Chobani yogurt
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 – 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- About 2 – 3 ounces (1/4 cup) goat cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon truffle salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
