Crockpot Dip

This is the dip we made today. The original recipe we just call Bread Bowl Dip (because it's made in a bread bowl), but I wanted to experiment (and I'm too cheap to buy a bread bowl for normal occasions) and make it in the crockpot. It worked! Delicious. But I can't call it bread bowl dip anymore.

16 oz sour cream
16 oz cream cheese
2 cups shredded cheddar
1 small jar dried beef, minced in food processor
taco chips, for dipping

Pretty much just throw the first 4 ingredients into a 1 1/2 quart crockpot. Turn on low. Let it go about 2 hours or so, stirring occasionally, until everything is all melted together.

(Or you could do what we did and halve the recipe and make it in your Little Dipper - it's tight, but works.) There won't be much left. My husband and I munched all day, and my parents stopped by and ate a little too. There's not much left...

A Little of This...

So today was kind of a bust. We were supposed to get some plumbing done, so we didn't have anything planned, but that fell through due to the weather. So what else to do? Stamp! And make some really yummy dip, but more about that later.

I worked on a couple projects, and made a birthday card. I always seem to need those!

I used some old Stampin' Up DP for the stripes, and it's a little hard to tell, but the truck part is on dimensionals.

After bath time here, we're off to watch a family movie. I usually double task - watch & stamp!

Happy stamping!
