Queso Dip

Posted on


I’ve been trying to figure out a menu for the Super Bowl tomorrow. It will be just my husband and I. He’s not a big football fan. (But he loves the commercials!) However, I am a big fan. And I am a New England Patriots fan at that! (Haters, be nice. I have been a fan my entire life.) I am very excited that the Super Bowl is tomorrow and that my favorite team is playing! So I have to do something a little ‘extra’ special for a menu, right? Well, here’s the start. I made a tasty Queso Dip today. This will sit over night and I’ll heat it up again tomorrow before the big game. It’s so easy and only uses 4 ingredients.

16 ounces of Velveeta Cheese
4 oz cream cheese
10 oz can of Rotel (diced tomatoes)
1 lb of ground pork sausage


Cut the Velveeta and cream cheese into cubes. Then place in a bowl to melt in the microwave. Cook the pork sausage until it is browned. Sprinkle some salt/pepper if you’d like. Add the tomatoes, mix well and heat for a few minutes. Stir in the cheese until thoroughly mixed. Heat through. Pour into container and served with your favorite tortilla chips! This keeps well for about a week in the fridge. Melt a little in a small bowl and have with chips for an afternoon snack!

Cookies for Kids, Wine for Moms

My sister-in-law hosted the 2nd Annual “Cookies for Kids, Wine for Moms” event yesterday. What a genius idea! There were 8 moms in attendance. 12 kids. And 1 dog.

My nieces rolled the dough…

And cut the cookies, before the crowds arrived.

There were lots of cookie cutters in Christmas shapes. (And even a Christmas Cow!)

The decorating ended, and play began. For the kids anyway. The moms cleaned. And chatted.

And drank wine.
