Colorful Vegetable Salad

This dish is sure to be a hit at your next pot luck or tailgate party!  I am not even a fan of broccoli or cauliflower, but I love this!

1 lb Broccoli, cut into small pieces
1 lb Cauliflower, cut into small pieces
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 cup Miracle Whip
2 tsp vinegar
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 small bag of real bacon bits (about a 1 cup chopped bacon)
1/2 lb cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes
1/2 cup sunflower seeds

In a large bowl combine broccoli, cauliflower and onion.  In a small bowl, mix Miracle Whip, vinegar and sugar.  Pour the mixture over the broccoli, cauliflower and onion and mix well.  Place in your refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.  Just before serving add the bacon, cheddar cheese and sunflower seeds and mix well.

Dr. Seuss' Birthday

It is time to celebrate Dr. Seuss' Birthday again!  Last year I made Lorax Nutter Butter cookies and Lorax suckers.  You can see that post here.  This year for my son's class I am making Lorax Twinkies!  He has a classmate with a nut allergy, so a friend suggested trying Twinkies instead.  I think they turned out great and the kids will love them!

Up close, I bought the candy eyes and then piped on the yellow frosting.

Simple Chip Dips

It is almost Super Bowl Sunday, so I thought I would share a couple of my favorite chip dips!  This first one couldn't be any easier.

Creamy Salsa Dip
1 (8 oz) block of cream cheese, softened
1 cup of your favorite salsa

Mix ingredients together in a blender or with a hand blender until smooth.  Refrigerate.  Serve with tortilla chips.

Hamburger Cheese Dip
1 lb hamburger, browned and drained (ground turkey or sausage would work too)
1 lb Velveeta cheese, cut into cubes
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 pkg Williams Chili Seasoning
1 can Rotel

Place all the ingredients in your crock pot and cook on high for 1 hour and then low until ready to serve, stirring often.  Serve with tortilla chips.
