Ahhhh, cheese. Wonderful cheese.
Especially cheese in dips. Warm cheese in dips. Ooey, gooey, stringy … yep, like pretty much the best thing ever.
And we don’t count calories consumed while watching Super Bowl, soooo! This Sunday, we are totally golden. And so are these incredible cheesy dip recipes.
Got your chips poised? Let’s do this.
Refresh. Refresh. Refresh.
My guy and I have gone crazy with checking our phones for Redfin updates. We receive an alert whenever a new home with our criteria has appeared on the real estate market. No matter what we’re doing, mid-bite at dinner, wherever, it’s become perfectly acceptable to shove one’s phone in the other’s face with an “mmmph!” and a potential new house to look at.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a fiend for sunflower seeds. Which is why I’m kicking myself for not trying Sunbutter sooner. Sunbutter is almost exactly like peanut butter or any other nut butter – but it’s made with sunflower seeds instead of nuts.
My guy watched a Seahawks game this past Saturday night.
He was pumped. “Football!”
I was bummed. “Football?!” (Already?! Seriously, summer just started. What’s up with that?)
One way to come to grips with the fact that autumn is imminent (grr) is to start thinking about game-day foods. It’s the serious issues that plague me, folks.
So I made a serious dip. Actually, it’s not so serious. It starts with the word “cheesy,” after all.
There seems to come a time in many bloggers’ careers where they have a lapse between posts, then a bigger lapse, then a huge lapse… and then comes The Post. The Post, drenched in guilt, apologizes for the absence. It explains what the heck is going on. It promises to do better.
This is kind of The Post. Though I don’t think an apology is in order, because I’m not delusional enough to think that any of you wonderful readers have been on pins and needles waiting for my next post … but if that happens to be the case, my gosh, I love you – and indeed, I am sorry.
Hummus is a yummy, hearty, super healthy dip/spread that, along with carrots, cucumbers, or another veggie, makes an awesome midday snack. (I know, healthy?! I haven’t been posting much of that lately.) Or, heck, add some pita wedges, and you’ve got a great lunch (or, like we had the other day, dinner!)
