Let’s Go Shopping!
Hi All! Teddy here, and I’m hosting Shopping Around The World for my buddy Bacon and his Mom this month and I picked for our monthly recipe the wonderful world of……….
That’s right – we all have a favorite snack that we grab to accompany us to the sofa when we watch the old TV at night, or a movie, or just to sit and munch when dinner is too much and starving is no fun! So, this month we’re sharing something we love to snack on. Here’s what you need to do to participate in this monthly fun. Give us your recipe, including the price you paid for each of the ingredients and maybe a photo of it too – and we all have a blast visiting each other to get new recipes AND to see what things cost in other places then our own grocery store. You will be amazed how the same item can vary by a LOT of $$$$ from place to place! Don’t forget to LINK to Bacon’s Blog today so he knows you’re participating – the badge above goes right to his blog.
Here’s our contribution……………………………
My Mom and Dad absolutely LOVE this snack – usually in the cold weather but really ANY old time it’s yummy.
Chili Cheese Dip
1/2 medium onion – chopped (Onion: $0.16 each)
1 teaspoon oil (on hand)
1 clove garlic minced (Garlic: $0.59 each)
1 15 oz. can chili (no beans) (Chili: $2.69)
1 cup salsa (Salsa: 16 oz. $2.49)
1 3 oz. package cream cheese (Mom buys 8 oz. and uses half of it – 8 oz. costs $2.39)
1 can (2-1/4 oz.) sliced ripe olives drained (Olives: $1.29)
Saute onions in oil – add garlic and transfer to crockpot. Add chili, salsa, cream cheese, and olives. Cook on LOW for four hours – stirring occasionally. By the way, Mom mashes up her cream cheese before it goes in the crockpot but you DO NOT HAVE TO – it kind of “melts” into the rest of the ingredients as it cooks! Serve with chips or WHATEVER………it’s delicious (so says Mom anyway).
We are going to host AGAIN next month – Shopping Around The World will be on Friday, September 29th so put that on your calendar NOW while you’re thinking about it! What will our item of the month be??????
DESSERT! Oh boy!
Yep – we’ll share our FAVORITE dessert recipe – my Mom says it’s been done before but who cares – everyone loves dessert right? Right! So we’ll be seeing you next month on Shopping Day too.
Happy Eating and Happy Shopping
