Happy Friday! Welcome to our week end round up #67. It was an interesting week here weather wise. The Northeast was hit with Blizzard like conditions on Tuesday. Shoveling 18 inches of snow is always fun. I’m sure for my Midwest and Canadian friends, this is a typically Tuesday. It was a good lesson in hard work and entrepreneurship for my oldest son. He got together with 3 of his friends and shoveled driveways to make $50 for a few hours of work. Looking forward to eating a lot of great food this weekend, we’re hosting a get together and serving Bagna Cauda, a family tradition. Then with the Super Bowl on Sunday, there will be more good stuff to eat. I’m looking forward to the food and the commercial, since I really don’t care for either team. Here is a recipe for one of my favorite football snacks:
Buffalo Chicken Dip
1 cup chopped celery
2 bars of cream cheese
1 cup Frank’s Wing Sauce
1 1/2 to 2 cups chopped or shredded cooked chicken
1 cup Ranch dressing
Shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese to melt on top
Combine chopped celery, cream cheese and wing sauce in saucepan over low-medium heat.
Heat till cream cheese is smooth.
Cook a few minutes to heat chicken
Add Ranch dressing last
Heat a couple minutes
Pour into pie plate or casserole dish.
Heat @ 350 for about 15 minutes.
Some people sprinkle shredded cheese on top. I don’t. I think its rich enough but I’ve had it both ways and it’s equally delicious.
Serve with tortilla chips (Scoops work great) and cut up celery.
Enjoy your weekend! What’s your weekend plans?
