Picnic Along the Backroads

Scrolling through some old pictures, I ran across this lovely shot somewhere off the main highway in Louisiana. I was driving the back roads to New Orleans to meet up with friends.

This spot, deep within a national park, seemed the perfect place to stop. When you take the highway, you stop in a truck stop for lunch. Your view is pavement and 18 wheelers. Bleech! This was my view when I stopped for my picnic.

And here's the recipe!

Green Chile Cheese Spread

1 (8 ounce) package 2% milk shredded sharp cheddar cheese (2cups)
1 (4 ounce) can peeled & chopped green chilies, drained (1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon onion granules
2 tablespoons finely chopped nuts
¾ cup low-fat mayonnaise (I prefer Smart Balance)

Mix all together. Makes 2 cups
