Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there. I saw this on facebook and had to share it! I want this sign so bad now I'm wondering where I can get one?
This is one of my babies. He's kind of crazy. Really skiddish around some people and has the cutest under bite in the World.
On Mother's Day we all just sat around and I ate queso dip. This queso dip I found in the latest edition of Food Network's magazine. Was kind of scared to try it at first because it called for 2 different kinds of chiles but my store didn't have them so I ended up using serranos. It was still spicy.
I've been messing around on pinterest a lot lately. Have you ever heard of group boards? I'm part of 3 of them and would like to be added to some more. It's a lot of work sometimes depending on what the owner of the board wants you to do but once you are in they are well worth it. I've joined so many food group boards lately thats all I see when I log in. That and pretty views of landscapes. Do you have a group board that I can be added to? If so you should add me to it on pinterest because I'd love to contribute to it. http://www.pinterest.com/jgisvold01/
Queso dip is so cheesy and yummy and cheesy and yummy. It's been a really cheesy weekend. Had loaded nachos at Lucky 13's yesterday while we played Bingo. We didn't win any cash at all but it was still fun. Tomorrow is Monday... crap.
- 1 shallot, finely diced
- 2 Campari or other small vine-ripened tomatoes, diced
- ¼ cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 serrano chile peppers, thinly sliced into rounds
- 1 red jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced into rounds
- Kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup grated pepper jack cheese (about 4 ounces)
- 1 cup grated American cheese (about 4 ounces)
- Combine 1 tablespoon diced shallot, the tomatoes and half of the cilantro in a small bowl; set aside.
- Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the remaining diced shallot, the serranos, jalapeno and ½ teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until the shallots are tender, about 3 minutes.
- Sprinkle the flour into the pan and cook, stirring, until completely absorbed, about 1 minute. Whisk in the milk and bring to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 4 minutes. Stir in the pepper jack and American cheese until melted, then remove from the heat; stir in the remaining cilantro. Transfer to a bowl and top with the tomato mixture. Serve with chips.
