Gosh, I haven't written in months and months and months and months. Ooops. Badbad. And SO much has happened. SO. MUCH.
Here is a last season recap - main things only: I moved in with the man, work was crazy busy and good, and then crazy and bad, things were rocky with the man, things are better, might be getting a new job, and there is so much food happening.
So basically, I am relocated and master of my own kitchen, because the boy can rarely be bothered to be in there unless eating, and my current job has decided to treat me like crap and I have basically decided to smile and take it. Because that is how I roll. Doormat style. Not really. I just don't really have millions of employment opportunities and can't afford to leave.
So I should probably start talking about the food. There were definitely hits and misses and you will get to know about ALLLL of them.
Let's start on an easy and positive note. I like those kinds of notes.
Crock-pot Buffalo Chicken Dip
2 oz blocks cream cheese
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup buffalo wing/hot sauce
1 cup ranch dressing
2 10oz cans of chicken***
***NB: I totally think this might be kind of grody. I obtained a whole cold rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and stripped about half of it for the dip. Basically one breast, thigh, drum stick. Meat from a can just seems so wrong to me.
Dump everything in crock pot. Turn crock pot on to your desired heat level depending on how quickly you need the dip to be ready. It will get sufficiently melty asap if you crank that baby up. I kept mine on warm for about two hours and then upped it to low about a half hour before I had to leave the house with it for a party. It was a HUGE hit. Along with the strawberry cupcakes with champagne buttercream I brought.
