I would never consider myself a football fan, although I’m not anti-football either. I do like having a weekly event to get together with friends for, but I hate that football always signifies the end of summer, and some weekends I wish I just had my TV back. The Hubs told me last night that he was depressed that football is over now. I said “well soon you’ll have March Madness”, and he reluctantly agreed. Poor guy. It’s probably for the best. All the game day grub can really do a number on someones gut.
I’m happy to have a break from the “party snacks” until college basketball starts up. Kale for everyone! For my football food grand finale this year, I made this queso blanco dip. Perhaps you recall just HOW MUCH we love white cheese dip around here, and I’m happy to have discovered white american cheese (who knew?) so I can now make it at home whenever I want. In moderation of course. You can dip pretty much anything in this; chips, pretzels, veggies, sliced pepperoni (don’t judge).
- 1 lb white american cheese
- 2 (4 ounce) cans diced green chilis, undrained **I used only 1 can of diced jalapeno per 1lb of cheese. very spicy!
- ½-1 cup heavy cream, depending on thickness of dip you like
Simmer all on the stove in a saucepan until smooth. Can be continuously re-heated if the sauce cools and gets too thick.
I have been a productivity MACHINE the last week or so. I’m hoping to keep the energy up for this week as well. Work, working out, blogging, working on Seasonalpotluck.com….I’ve been doing it all! I’m feeling a bit invincible at the moment. Go me!
