Hope everyone’s weekend was as good as mine! First off, I had a nice long, 4 day weekend. I went to see a movie at Cinetopia on Friday and will probably never see a movie in a regular theatre again. I know, I know, I’m a little behind on the craze. I was like a little kid in a candy store there. You have waiters in the theater. Yes, waiters. Watching previews and getting a little hungry? No problem, just call a waiter over and order some mac and cheese. Or a burger. Or a caesar salad! And you know what’s even better than ordering food? Ordering beer. Or wine. Seriously, whoever thought of this idea is a genius in my mind. Needless to say, I had a great time seeing a movie.
We missed most of the Blazer game while watching the movie but caught the last 5 minutes on our way home. Best last 5 minutes of a game ever. Actually, best .09 seconds of a game ever. Woohoo we’re moving on in the playoffs! As like most Blazer fans have, I kept replaying that last play over and over. Check it out HERE. It’s goose bump worthy.
My husband and I spent all day Saturday running errands with Keela. We recently found out that Lowes and Home Depot are dog friendly so of course she comes with us anytime we go. I think she may have OD’d on cookies though, everyone loves her! And she’s learning to love the strangers in the orange vest. D usually takes her by himself so
she I loved having the whole family go together. And I was a proud dog mom as everyone said “how beautiful” she is.
We were quite busy the rest of the weekend so I’m a little late on posting a recipe for Cinco de Mayo but better late than never, right? I honestly forgot about this “holiday”. Another sign I’m getting old 😉 This yummy dip is so easy to make and with only 3 ingredients, it’s almost impossible to mess up! I love the smokey flavor the peppers give. And in my opinion, jalapeños make any dish better!
If you want a milder dish, only use 1/2 of the jalapeño.
To soften my cream cheese, I take it out of the fridge about an hour before I make the dip. If you don’t have time, just soften in the microwave.
- 1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened
- 1 jalapeño
- 3-4 chipotle peppers
- In food processor, chop peppers (about 10 seconds).
- Finely dice jalapeño.
- In bowl of stand mixer with paddle attachment, beat all ingredients together until smooth, about 2 minutes.
