OK...so maybe that wasn't such a hot idea. Yesterday was swell, in that I got an awful lot of stuff done, but today? Today I feel like a bus hit me, backed up and over me, and then hit me again.
I know, I know...MOD-ER-A-TION...but in the almost ten years that you've known me when have I ever understood that particular concept?
So today will be a recovery day. Rich has already suggested that I make the brisket tomorrow and we'll just have leftovers today.
I could kiss him right on the face for that one.
Dinner was a smashing success, and the cheese dip better that I remembered it. I wish I could take credit for creating it, but that honor must go to Miss Trisha Yearwood Her Very Self:
Charleston Cheese Dip
* 1/2 cup mayonnaise
* One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
* 1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
* 1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
* 2 green onions, finely chopped
* 1 dash cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 350. Combine the above ingredients in a shallow dish and heat in oven for 15-30 minutes or until bubbly.
* 8 butter crackers, crushed, such as Ritz
Add crackers to top and brown...another three or four minutes.
* 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Add bacon on top of the crackers and heat for just a minute or two.
Serve with chips, crackers, pretzels...anything that will hold up to a hearty dip. (I like Fritos scoops).
I'm going to do laundry and stitch all day. At least I hope so. If I make any good progress I'll have pics for you tomorrow! Happy Sunday, Dearies! Hope the sun is shining and the birds are tweeting sweetly wherever you are!
