Good afternoon everyone – hope your Memorial Day is going well!!
The weather kind of took a turn for the worst – rain, wind and chilliness, boo. Luckily though, Ben’s family got all the grilling done before the rain started so we had a Memorial Day feast ready no problemo!
To start with, we had chips and dip – this is no ordinary dip though. Oh, no. This is Ben’s Dad’s faaaavorite dip to make and is sooo easy and delicious! It’s only got two ingredients: 1. Cream cheese 2. Sweet onion and hot pepper relish. Combine these and serve with Fritos. They have to be Fritos too, we tried with tortilla chips and it’s just not the same.
The combo of the salty, crunchy Fritos and sweet, creamy dip is OOTW (out of this world.) YUMMM! I could have eaten the whole bowl and basket, but, I restrained myself 🙂
Our main menu consisted of grilled pork tenderloin, fresh steamed green beans, roasted asparagus and fresh fruit – cantaloupe, pineapple, watermelon, black berries and strawberries. Probably the freshest fruit salad I’ve ever had!
I’ve never had grilled pork tenderloin before, it was awesome! The crust that the grill gave the pork was reeeeally good. I might have to try it in the future! As always, it was a delicious meal – Ben’s Mom is an outstanding cook and his Dad is a superior dip maker. 😉
For dessert we had fruity pebble bars that one of Ben’s Mom’s co-workers made – they were sooooo sweet!!!
Sweet enough to where I was satisfied with one. Which we decided was a good thing, because usually I want to eat about 3/4 of the pan of regular rice krispie treats!
Oh, here’s a picture of Ben’s family’s dog – Emma. She has got this crack addiction to a frisbee that she literally just stares at for hours on end. Here she is staring…
Why are dogs so funny!?
Do you have a dog, cat…or both? Ben and I really want a dog, but we’re just not ready for the responsibility that comes along with the little fur ball…maybe in 2010!?
