Ahh weekend…you are much too short. I am so sad that it’s Sunday night already.
Today was a good day though. Ando and I spent most of it with our neighbours on their patio, and it was actually nice out! No rain all day.
I wanted to bring a little something for us all to snack on, so I decided to make the Big Dipper (basically a cream cheese salsa dip) from Janet and Greta Podleski’s Eat, Shrink And Be Merry.
I have made this numerous times before, and I have to say, I think it is the best nacho dip I have ever tasted. I am a big fan.
Here is the recipe:

I left out the shrimp as I didn’t have any on-hand, as well as the olives, since I am not the biggest fan of them. I also subbed plain Liberte Greek yogurt for sour cream to add a protein punch, and it was the perfect base for this dish since Greek yogurt has a thicker and creamier consistency.
This dip was annihilated by everyone!
Our neighbs also made us quite the barbecue for dinner.
Barbecued chicken that had been marinating in a Swiss Chalet sauce (so good), peppers and asparagus that was drizzled with balsamic vinegar, sprinkled with vegetable seasoning and then cooked in tinfoil on the barbecue, and Caesar salad and potato salad. Yum friggin’ yum.
And for dessert…
Strawberry rhubarb pie topped with cool whip and fresh strawberries and blackberries. I am not usually in love with rhubarb, but this was delicious! I ate every last bite.
I’m off to sneak in some leisuring (and laundry, blech) before this weekend is over. Hope you all had a great one!
