Cheddar Bacon Dip aka "Crack Dip"
First of all let me preface this post by asking......do you Pinterest?
OMG. I am addicted. Addicted in the worse way I tell ya. Never heard of Pinterest. Don't feel bad, up until a few months ago I hadn't either, then I noticed I kept getting lots and lots of blog hits from it. So many that it made me look into it. I asked around, found out a lot of my blogging buddies were on it so I checked it out and that's when it happened.
I got addicted.
Think of a page when you can bookmark something every time you say "oh that looks good" or "man that looks delicious, I need to make that" or "what I great idea, how am I gonna remember that??"
It's a visual bookmarking page that you can share with your friends. You see what they like, they see what you like. It's like a happy little sharing space.
I have mentioned it before. My kids are really into dip. I think most kids are, but my youngest will sit with a bowl of dip and some crackers and put a hurtin' on it in one sitting.
I see several entries for this "crack dip" on Pinterest. Hmmm. Sounds interesting. The word crack implying that it's as addicting as....yeah we get it. I actually see that not only is one crack dip featured, but several, some a buffalo chicken crack dip, and even though buffalo "anything" is high on Evan's list of goodness, I decided to try the Cheddar Bacon Dip.
This needs to sit for 24 hrs so I made this Saturday afternoon as a "test dip". You certaintly can't serve a dip that you never made before right? So Sunday morning I go into the fridge and give it alittle mix and decided I should taste it.
My son and nephew come down the stairs, just haven woken up, and they see dip. They see crackers. They dive in.
After 10 minutes of non-stop dipping, I assume the dip is a hit. My nephew declares it "awesome". He is the ranch dressing addicted child, so I knew this dip would be a hit with him.
