Mushroom Almond Pate

Spread almonds in a shallow pan and toast in a 350 degree oven for 8
minutes or until lightly browned

Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Add onion, garlic,
mushrooms, salt, thyme and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion
is soft and most of the pan juices have evaporated.

In a food processor or blender, whirl almonds to form a paste, With motor

Add mushroom mixture and whirl until pate is smooth.

Chill until set.

I used walnuts, because I had them on hand, and this turned out fine. I

Spicy Yogurt Dip

1 c nonfat yogurt 1 1/2 Tbsp apricot honey (or 1 Tbsp honey plus 1/2 Tbsp
apricot preserves) 1 tsp curry powder 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Mix all ingredients together and let sit for at least an hour. The flavor
intensifies, but you may want to add curry and/or cayenne later. This
tastes sweet, and you don't realize it's hot until it's too late.
