Sooooo it was a good weekend following a good week. One of the things contributing to the goodness of last week was the 2012 Ornament Swap. Check out Mary Neff's post for some party pics! Now....onto the grub!
One of the dishes that I contributed to the cause was Feta Dip. It's, like, duh easy and super super tasty. Follow this link and grab the recipe!! Doesn't it look pretty on that Annie Glass? So festive. Also, be sure to grab some legit bread to go with it. We had baguettes from the Mock(yeah)-ing(yeah) Bird(yeah) Bakery and they were clutch.
Making it's appearance for the second year in a row was the Ornament Swap toffee. I know I've said this six times already but it is the absolute shiz. If you haven't checked it out yet head on over to this post and do that. I'll wait................
Welcome back, turkeys.
The third and final food that I contributed to the par-tay was Christmas Eve Cheese Dip. You may remember me rambling about it in this post, now its time to learn about it for yourself!
This recipe is one that my mom has made for probably 23 Christmas' in a row. It's a dip that is a little bit 80's and a lotta bit awesome. It's got all the key ingredients for a good time (sour cream, cream cheese, etc) and is eaten with, what else, a Frito.
We all know that nothing says Merry Christmas like a Frito.
I hope you'll try it and I hope you'll love it!Christmas Eve Cheese Dip
