Dipity Do Dah Dilly Dip

Dipity do dah dipity ya dip dip dip dip all day!

Dipity do dah dipity ya…dip dip dip dip all day!

Yadda, yadda, yadda, no recipes lately! Well you see, I was kinda on strike until Husband put my counter tops in to share with you as I was so proud of the work he did and how nice it is to have beautiful, working counter tops again”! ” With the old ones, I was to the point of just cutting veggies or anything else you could imagine, right on top of them without having a care in the world of what I did to them, see? But now I treat them with kit gloves like a child or aka my husband, ha ha! Now after that improvement, Husband is Hell Bent to redo the floors in the dining room and living room, God help me, here we go again! I have to wonder what he has in store for us after that project as he is running out of things to spruce up in our home and no I am not going to be on his to-do list, another ha ha!!!
After the 4th and all the cooking that occurred shortly thereafter, I had so many leftovers that I was obsessed with not throwing anything away and so, I have not been trying much on the new side. This recipe did however intrigue my taste-buds as we have an ample amount of fresh veggies coming into our stores and Kenny and I both love to indulge in dinners that have only veggies even though we are not vegans and so last night was just that! It all started when we had bought some Dill Dip at our local store and I said, how hard can this be? So with that, I found a couple of recipes and came up with this one for us……..

Cheddar Cheese And Veggie Cracker Spread

I’m starting today off with a quick tip that we read somewhere a long time ago and not sure if I shared it with you or not. As somewhat of a klutz in the kitchen at times, husband is always worried about me and once in awhile I have to admit he’s right! I bought a tea pot some time ago and the handle is not a solid part of the kettle, rather it goes from side to side allowing you to to lay it down while filling it with water. Kenny just showed me one the other day while we were shopping with a solid handle and told me he’d feel much better with me using it rather than the one I presently have. Now I’m not sure if he jinxed me or not, but last night while making my tea, the handle decided to swivel and some very hot water spilled all over my hand! Shouting out some expletives, Kenny came rushing to my aid telling me to get the flour from the frig and sit down with my hand stuck inside the bag, hence the tip for today. We always keep a resealable bag in the frig full of flour just for this purpose and I have to tell you, it’s the best damn thing for burns I have ever used! I stuck my hand in the bag for about 30 minutes (of course 10 minutes into the process I had to use the potty), and today other than a little pinkness, there is absolutely no soreness or blistering, PHEW!

Oh! That feels soooo good!

Oh! That feels soooo good!

Now onto today’s recipe. I have a baby shower coming up in a month for my granddaughter and tried this recipe to take along for the girls to munch on with some crackers. I had seen a recipe based on this idea and decided to change it around a little with the veggies I had in the frig, figuring husband and I could have it for lunch along with some ham or turkey on the side and we really enjoyed the crunchiness of the veggies with the cheese, especially today with the hot temps we were experiencing! Of course, you can use a mixture of  veggies to your own liking!

Goes great with any crackers!
