For easy entertaining, this classic spinach-and-artichoke dip can be assembled up to a day ahead. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and then bake just before serving. My family loves spinach and artichoke dip. When we are out at a restaurant that has it on the menu we are sure to get it and it is sure to disappear quicker than it took to come out for sure. I say why should you only have it when you go out. Make it at home when ever you want.
