A SMOKY AND CHEESY APPETIZER RECIPE
Can I please state the obvious?!? Hand-model material! Am I right or am I RIGHT!?
Also? One more obvious? THIS is theeeee last day of 2014!! How do you feel about that?
I’m still coming to terms with the fact that I was born in the previous CENTURY! Am I the only that has a problem with that?
Think about it. When Ana – my 5-year old – is old enough to understand, or grasp the meaning of time, she is going to be pretty damned surprised to learn that her Mom was born in the 20th CENTURY! 20th!! It’s soooo… weird.
At least it was during the last quarter of the 20th century.
…Trying to keep my glass half FULL.
Think I need a Mojito to get over it.
Now, let’s bust out the Slow Cooker – we need a Dip for tonight! Also, bring out some cheese. We’re gonna need 5 cups. None of which includes cubed, processed, Velveeta type stuff, m’kay? Good.
It’s been so long since we last talked DIP. To be honest, there are few things I love more than Dip; my children and hair dyes that cover-up grays.
This Cheese Dip recipe utilizes the ingredients that I always have on hand, including my dad’s homemade spicy, yummy, smoked sausages. Well, I don’t always have that on hand, but when I do, it’s on like donkey kong!
Don’t worry, I’m not going to ask you to make sausages from scratch. I sure don’t. For now, my parents are more than happy to do it.
This recipe needs a total of 6 ingredients, and since we need to keep it warm and bubbly for tonight’s big NYE partaaaay, why not just whisk them all together in the crock pot and call it a day? Kind of cool, right? I truly appreciate it when I can throw everything in there and create something gooey and delicious.
Now go awn and have a wonderful time tonight. Be safe, be wise, and find a designated driver. I ♥ YOU!
