Tasty Tuesday: Feta Dip

Recipe and Image Source?

Olive Oil
1 block of feta cheese
1/2 bunch of green onions
2 tsp Greek seasoning
2 tomatoes
1 Baguette
1 large platter

Generously wet the platter with olive oil.
Dice the green onions and tomatoes (I only used 1/2 bunch of onions).  Place on the oiled platter.
Crumble the feta and place on the platter.
Sprinkle the greek seasoning on top.
Gently mix together.
Slice Baguette.

I made this on Sunday and slightly altered the recipe.  One bunch of onions was way too much in my opinion and 3 tomatoes was also too much.  I used 3 tsp of the seasoning as per the original recipe but that made it really salty so I would suggest only using 2 tsp.  This was easy and very good.  My Mom made this for a neighbor’s get together this summer and had a couple people request the recipe…yes, it’s that good!

Hatteras Wave Jam “Extended!”

Every Wave Jam thus far has featured an “Extended” session which follows the main event window.  Of course for 2012, we saw the “Primer” which featured big surf and excellent wind the week before Wave Jam, but we have been offered an “Extended” as well with strong S wind and fun surf just a few days after the end of the Wave Jam window.

Here are a few pics of Youth Wave Jam Champ, Ian Stokes riding at Rmp 44 during the “Extended” sesh!

Camille Juban Wins the 2012 AWT Hatteras Wave Jam

Wow, what an Event with wind and wave finally arriving in the final hours of the contest window!  Swell from H Nadine began to hit the beach on Saturday morning providing excellent surfing/SUP conditions as winds remained light.  However, by late afternoon, north wind passed the 20 mph mark and the contest was ON!  What we thought was going to be a bust turned into a boom as excellent conditions provided the key ingredient for awesome Hatteras wavesailing action!  Coupled with perfect late afternoon light, the photo/video captures were stunning!

Below is an excellent two frame sequence of Pro Winner Camille Juban soaring a high backloop during a contest heat!
