Dip Me

{Jesica's Dip}
Within hours after my last post my sister-in-law Mary send me a text.  She couldn't wait to get this dip recipe.  This may not seem like a big deal, but she just had a baby and the text was so long it was in 2 parts.  Now that's drive.
Mary, here you go.  Feed those post-pardum cravings.;) 

Ah, Jesica.  Thank-you.  She brought this killer fruit dip and believe me when I say it "wowed" the masses at the family reunion.  If you look closely you'll notice there isn't much left in that large bowl...and I wasn't the only one who put more on their plate--without any fruit.;)

Man, it was GOOD.

Disclaimer: Make and eat at your own risk.  I will not be held responsible for the amount you consume or the consequences that come from it.  ;)

Mix the following together:

1 8oz box of cream cheese {i assumed we'll want it room temp...}
1 jar of caramel
1 Skor candy bar smashed up into bits

The End

You'll never be the same.
Who needs that top button anyway.  

You must know by now that I'm a lover of good food.  Hence, these next pictures.  Heaven forbid I don't document this part of the reunion.  And who knows, maybe you'll be inspired like I was...:)

Giganto Pietro's Pizza.  Memory made. This pizza hasn't changed since I was a kid, and it made my day--and I have a feeling I wasn't the only one loving it...

The grill and the future of our legal system...

This fall my brother {in the white} starts is journey with law in Arizona.
Good luck Matt.
Good luck Arizona.

Oh, and the hamburgers and hot dogs were superb.

I love the memories of my grandma scooping us ice cream for us in the summer.  Just the plain old vanilla, chocolate, and if we were lucky, strawberry.   And what kid {or grown up} doesn't love a good ice cream cone? 

Messy?  Yes.  Worth it? You betcha.


While the guys went golfing the 1st day of the reunion a few of us decided to go pick some of those juicy, sweet, succulent blueberries.

It was cousin Ezra's 1st time.  He caught on quick.  Although he'd had a rough couple of days {check out his black eye -not to mention Aidan's teeth marks on the side of  his face.  Yeah, I know.}, but I think the blueberries hit the spot...especially when he figured out he could throw them. ;)

Oh Aidan...

If I had a choice I'd almost always choose chocolate cake over pie...but not when it comes to this fresh blueberry delight.  Pioneer Woman is famous for a reason.  I had 2 pieces for breakfast yesterday and didn't regret it one bit. 

Next up in my reunion marathon is some more cute kids and great activity ideas...I know you can hardly wait.;)

See you soon.

Who would have thought that dip would be so simple to make?! Bless you (and Jessica!) for sharing the recipe and not hoarding it to yourselves! Mmmm...

FINALLY added you to my google reader, which is much better than fb notes. Love it all!

Thanks for the new potluck recipe! I'll probably make this at home today. FYI, there are only three of us in this house - I might be gaining some weight this weekend!
