I had a Premier Jewelry party on Sunday. I love having an excuse to get together with girlfriends, and trying on new bling. But I love feeding people. I like to see people happy when eating something I have prepared or made.
Although, I really didn’t make anything major as all I did was put some things together. Meat and salami tray, pickled okra and kalamata olives.I did make the Million Dollar Dip, and had cheese chunks, grapes, Stacy’s pita chips and Ritz crackers.Also made Buffalo Chicken dip, and tortilla chips.Plated smoked salmon or Lox with cream cheese, sliced purple onions, capers, and fried capers. Oh and some toasted bread, that I had to throw some out due to burning! Ugh. It was a such fun afternoon. Some food, wine, soda, and leftover Halloween chocolate rounded out the afternoon. I love girlfriend time, plus it gets my house clean!! Bonus!! What did you do this weekend?
My girlfriend Beth shared this recipe with me a couple of years ago on one of our couple trips. I loved this!! It was game day on Saturday, and we have to have some sort of football food, right? So I made this.
1 can of chicken (large)
8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
1/4 Frank’s Red Hot Wings sauce
1 cup of finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Mix all of the ingredients (but not the cheddar cheese) in a bowl until blended and the cream cheese is thoroughly mixed in.Place into a baking dish, and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbly. Place the cheddar cheese on top, and return to the oven until the cheese topping melts.Let set for about 5 minutes, and serve. You can use tortilla chips or Frito’s – a chip that is sturdy to hold the dip. Most of the time I use Scoops, but we didn’t have any.
My plate with a 1/4 of a hamburger as well, because I can’t just have buffalo dip. This mixes up effortlessly, and everyone loves it.
What is your favorite game day food?
