Fun, Games and Recipes !

It was a weekend filled with clear blue skies, cool temperatures, fun, lots of FOOD and family. Unfortunately, our team didn't win, but that didn't stop a my little bulldog fan from being more than enthused... as you can see by him holding his own cowbell and pompom. As much as I love going on trips, I think the part I like the best it coming home. Home to my own bed, own bath, and our little routine. After all, my little ones do MUCH better on a schedule (and mommy is much less exhausted!!)
After some requests for one of our favorite "family get together" foods, here is the recipe for "Mississippi Sin". We can thank my sister A. for this! If you make it, I can promise everyone will be licking the bottom of the (bread) bowl. Happens every time. To top it all off, it is amazingly simple. Enjoy!

Mississippi Sin Dip
(I almost always DOUBLE this recipe)
1 loaf french bread
1 8 oz. container french onion dip
1 4 oz. can green chilies (drained)
1 package bacon bits
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
-Cut off top of bread (save for later) and hollow out french bread (by hollow out, I mean take out enough bread for dip to fit inside, you don't have to hollow it into an absolute shell).
-Mix all ingredients in bowl, place inside bread, place top back on.
-Wrap in aluminum foil , place on cookie sheet and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees
-Serve with large corn chips (or chip or cracker of your choosing).
-Watch it disappear!
Happy Sunday and
Much Love,

I am new to blogging and came across your blog and love it. I decided to try your Sin Dip recipe this past weekend and my family LOVED it. Thanks for putting that out there. And please know that me and my family appreciate all the sacrifices that you and your family make with your husband serving in Iraq. We will keep ya'll in our prayers.

Take Care and God Bless~
