José Jalapeño on a Stick :D

annette, I think I'll let you try it first. lol Nougat day sounds good.

Don't know if they call it nougut but Pearson's Nut Goodie bar has an awesome maple flavored center. I guess they have a seasalt and carmel center now. :)

MadDog, That gets expensive real quick. Thinking about a toaster oven. Let me know how the induction oven works for you. :)

MadDog, How can you not go to a grocery store? ;)

annette, Everything tastes better with chocolate on it except lobster. :)

Jayburt, I take the lazy route and buy the sourcream with the chives already in it. Works great in other recipes (hot dishes and mashed potatoes) calling for sour cream too. :)

hat, Nice to see you. Weather is at least getting warmer. ;)

RR, Hope all is going well at school. :)

Good morning all. Sorry for not stopping in for a while, but real life issues have a hold on my time. I see some things haven't changed. I think we should change the name of this thread to "Food Chat for Singles". LOL

At least we've backed off the weather reports.

annette I've noticed a heavy inclination towards 'chocolate covered' in your food days, lol. Not that theres anything wrong with that, do love a nice dark chocolate myself, and hot cocoa is the best of cold days!
teejay, cold here too, snowed yesterday and was cold enough to stick to the lawn and cars! Not like you guys though, last I seen you were still getting heavy snows, especially up in the northern part of the state.
Going to try your dip, because it has ingredients I love!yum...know just where to get some really sharp cheddar for it too.
DG I make that too, and grow fresh chives in the yard in more than one place, always trim some and freeze it to eat w/sourcream on potatoes..w/chives and I'm in heaven..

Happy Pre-Hump Day all.

Ann, Water day reminds me of the movie Waterworld....poor Cosner was bashed pretty bad for that one and I thought it was ok.

Well look at that. I had Mexican for lunch yesterday so I subconsciously knocked that one out the park.

Well here it is, Tuesday already, the week is flying by, NOT! Anyway, I trust you all had a good weekend. Thing remain the same here in the frozen northern tundra...... Single digits over the weekend and yesterday and today, got up this morning to 8 degrees above zero! Good grief, it is nearly APRIL!!! Anyway, high temp today in the 20's, maybe even 30 something like me...right. Actually it isn't supposed to hit my age until next month, we may make it into the 40's later this week with a chance of rain showers which will be a huge change.

Chips and Dip, so what is everyone's favorite dip? I really like the Clam Dip that Helluva Good made years ago, but they don't make anymore, of course the classic, Lipton Onion Soup mix with either sour cream or plain yogurt or a combination of the two is always good. I like the bacon horseradish dips as well, who wouldn't, it has bacon in it! I also make a really good hot cheese dip, the sharpest cheddar you can find, some mayonnaise, diced onion, all in an ovenproof dish, bake until hot/bubbly/ and a little browned on top. DO NOT USE A LOW FAT CHEESE, you want that fat on top of the backed stuff to help it brown. OutRAGEOUS! (A little stiff for chips, works better with crackers)

Not a big fan of oatmeal cookies, but this is Girl Scout Peddling season and those boxes of devilishly delicious morsels should be banned from existence. Pretty much all of the flavors are like legal crack!!!!

Hi Guys and Girls,

TeeJay2, I haven't seen the northern lights yet either.

Ok, something for throwback Thursday:

"A cloud appears above your head
A beam of light comes shining down on you
Shining down on you
The cloud is moving nearer still
Aurora Borealis comes in view
Aurora comes in view
And I ran, I ran so far away"

*giggling* - and this one is just for fun. Sleep well and have a great day. :)
