Anybody Interested…

…in a little impromptu DipTacular tomorrow?

It’s spur of the moment, I know, but that’s sort of the way my week has gone. I’m still trying to get back in the swing of balancing my work schedule with the little guy’s school schedule with a cooking-some-food-for-my-people schedule with an I-have-some-writing-to-do schedule with a visiting with my husband schedule with a Real Housewives of New York schedule.

I hope to have this tricky balance perfected by some time in early 2016.

ANYWAY, I would love some new dip recipes for football season, so if there are 20 or 25 of y’all who would like to pool recipe ideas, I’m all for it. I’ll put up a post in the morning with a Mr. Linky-thingie so that everybody can leave links to their own posts that chronicle all sorts of dip-related wonderfulness.

And if nobody’s interested, that is fine. I’ll just go buy several blocks of cream cheese and stir them up with some mozzarella and then cook it until it’s golden and bubbly.

Naturally I’ll serve it with some stone ground whole wheat flax crackers. Or maybe I’ll just eat it with a spoon.

Let me know if you’re interested in participating!

  1. Maybe you’ve had this one before but it’s so easy and good that it doesn’t hurt to repeat it.
    BLT Dip
    Mix equal parts of real mayo and sour cream. 1/2 c of each is a good amount.
    Spread on a serving plate.
    Top with a package of REAL bacon pieces (or cook your own bacon, crumble and top).
    Follow with finely cut lettuce and small diced tomatoes.

    That’s it. You can serve with crackers, thinly sliced bagel pieces, chunks of bread…it’s good no matter what you eat it on.

  2. I’m in! Why in the world not? :)
