“Silly-Face Bread Bowl,” Friend, Sept. 2012, 47
1 large round sourdough or Italian bread
1 long, skinny banana pepper, stem end removed
1 green olive stuffed with pimento, halved
1 thick slice of cucumber, halved
1 thin slice of red bell pepper
various bite-sized vegetables
Ask an adult to help you cut a circle in the top of the bread.
Remove the circle and pull out bread to form a bowl (save the bread to eat with dip later).
Using the toothpicks and vegetables, put a face on the bread bowl. Stick the yellow pepper into the side of the bowl for a nose. Add the olive halves for eyes, the cucumber halves for ears, and the red bell pepper slice for a mouth.
Fill the bread bowl with chilled dip. Serve with bread and bite-sized vegetables.
Combine the following ingredients and let chill for 2 hours in the refrigerator.
1 container (16 oz.) sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1 envelope vegetable soup mix
10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
