Yup, I have a COLD, a head cold. Thank you The Hubby! I guess too much kissing.
Yesterday we went to an open house in which an appetizer was requested to bring. I was going to make a sandwich kind of thing but realized I had used up my bread for another party this weekend and I JUST COULD NOT go to the store again, at least for a few days. Soooo, to the fridge and pantry I went digging around for ideas. What I came up with was cream cheese, sour cream, black beans, Rotel tomatoes, canned corn and cheddar cheese. I softened the cream cheese and drained the beans and corn, not the tomatoes and mixed it all together. I didn't have taco seasoning but added cilantro and cumin. I didn't have any tortilla chips but had pita chips which worked fine as it was heavy dip. After I mixed it all up I put it a baking dish (a deep pie dish) and put it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes till hot. I was a HUGE hit! Not all was eaten so I brought about a fourth of it home.
Tonight for dinner, in between trying to swallow on a sore throat and sneezing I thought about making The Hubby take me out but I just didn't feel like getting out again. I don't really feel bad, which is good. I had chicken tenders thawing in the fridge and some egg noodles of which I was going to make some chicken and noodles but needed a PIZAZZ and thought of that leftover dip. I added the dip and man oh man sooooo good! Kind of a creamy spicy chicken and noodles.
