FULL

We had a very full Memorial Day. Full of family, full of food, full of traveling...all fun, delicious, and worth it.

The weekend started with dinner friends

Wyatt still doesn't understand why he didn't get a hotdog

Hotdogs were definitely a great choice for the weekend o' cookouts. But the best part of the meal was the cheese dip...It's a recipe for Mexican queso, served at EVERY friendly neighborhood taco joint. I found it here and it is the exact same white, creamy, super-delicious cheese that my nachos drown in when we used to go out to dinner.


1 package WHITE AMERICAN cheese...you have to unwrap every slice, but worth it. Stack the slices and cut into chunks. Melt this for a minute at a time in the microwave until stir-able. Thin with milk until desired consistency. Then add chopped jalapenos...as many as you want. You can stick them in a food processor so you get small bits, or chop with a paring knife for chunks. Find them in a jar in the hispanic isle of the local grocer.

So yummy. Serve them (to the Campbell family when you invite us for dinner) with tortilla chips.

Updates on the rest of the weekend to follow!
