Ultimate Cheesy Artichoke Bread




This last Friday was the official first day of Summer. 

It stormed and rained in Iowa and we've been under a flood warning since....

it seems like it's been weeks.

To cheer us all up this weekend I made our favorite dip, Cheesy Artichoke, and then before I could serve it, we had surprise guests and all our plans had to change for a few days. 

Then tonight preparing dinner, I found the container of dip in the back of the frig. Sweet!!!

I decided to use it as a topping on a loaf of sourdough (hehe!!) as a side for our pasta dinner. Yum!

So even though I have been resorting to using the oven as little as possible, because the air conditioner is running because it's 85F outside, and pouring rain, I cranked that baby on for this bread.

IT WAS PHENOMENAL!!!!
