    haha what

  2. Love your commentary on the word “dip” – I had totally forgotten about dip meaning someone who does something goofy! This looks so divine. I haven’t had vegan cheese in a long time. I think it’s time to get back to it!

    Mind blown! This looks and sounds fantastic. Ah the account number repeating to every person/robot you’re transferred to is so frustrating! Luckily assembling this dip (totally a weird word) isn’t!

      Let me tell you, plants in my house normally enter at their own risk. Thanks to a little guidance though, they seem to be surviving. Like I say, it’s amazing what a little water can do!! 🙂
