How was everyone’s fourth?…. Good?
I’d have to say this was my best fourth of July in a recent memory. Not trying to be braggy –that’s what FB’s for, right?– just had a great time with my daughter and husband. It was the right mix of adult stuff and kid activities. You know what I mean?
Also, the food was incredible. There were a lot of apps involved, which always pleases me. The spread included this dip.
Ok, so it’s cheese dip. What makes it different? Take a look-
The mustard and the pimentos add flavor and texture like no other cheese dip I’ve made. Oh! And you must use sharp cheddar cheese. I used a mix (as you can see) but make sure it has sharp cheddar in it. The flavor combo of the cheddar, mustard, and hot sauce?? Woah.
Here’s a collage of how I made it happen:
Honestly, from now on, even if I’m eating Cheez-Wiz from a jar, I’m adding pimentos. They made it feel festive.
Happy Fourth…. and you know… Monday:)
