I apologize for the week of silence. With Thanksgiving going on and a week of no classes, I was distracted on the farm and to be honest I’ve kind of been in a funk lately. Writers block maybe?? Yeah, I really have no idea. Also I guess it could be all the packing that I have been doing…
But, today I’m back at it and the most important thing I have to tell you is….
THIS IS THE LAST WEEK OF CLASSES FOR MY COLLEGE CAREER!
I graduate in T minus 9 days. Honestly, I could not be more excited. I haven’t decided if I’m going to walk at graduation yet or not. I think I just want to get out of this dang town as quick as I can. Is that bad? I’ve lived here for 2 1/2 years and I haven’t really enjoyed it. Haven’t really enjoyed anywhere I’ve lived except for the farm and The Mile High. I don’t know if anywhere I live can compete with The Mile High City, except maybe… the beach?? Have you ever been to Denver?? If not I suggest you add that destination to your Bucket List.
Switching gears here… and quick. Sorry, I’m going to be super jumpy today ha!
How was everyone’s Thanksgiving holiday?? Enjoyed great family and food? I sure hope so!
I prepared our small feast on Thanksgiving Eve (we don’t go all out since everyone has multiple meals to go to over the holiday… we just keep it pretty simple) consisting of the obvious turkey…. which by the way didn’t even require a knife to cut because it literally fell off the bone when I took it out of the oven to rest AND I took the turkey out an hour and a half before it was even supposed to be done. Talk about tender and juicy! The best turkey I’ve EVER eaten! I wish I would’ve wrote down the brand that was on the package because I want more! I also prepared some classic mashed potatoes with turkey gravy, homemade dressing (which everyone swore it was Stove Top), sweet potato casserole, pumpkin pie, and Whiskey Brownies (you would require a breathalyzer after eating just one). Needless to say, the fam loved it all.
Yesterday I had a Christmas party for an organization that I’m a part of on campus and I had NO IDEA what I wanted to take. I asked a few other bloggers what they’re favorite dishes were and I got a few great ones.. I was in a huge time crunch so I didn’t get to make everything I planned on. And when I say time crunch, I had to run to the store and prepare within an hour. I accomplished brownies and Buffalo Chicken Dip. Both of which are super yummy and obviously easy!
I’ve adapted this dip from Melissa over at Pernickety Plates. Have you been over to visit her? If not I think you should!
This dip is perfect for your next office meeting, tailgating party, or well just to set around and eat 🙂 I won’t lie… I had the leftovers for supper.
I hope you enjoy!!
