Crock pot Sundays

So for the past couple weeks (on Sundays) Ry and I have been pretty lazy, with football being on and all. I don't really care to watch the football on Sundays, NFL football players really annoy me. He is a HUGE Minnesota Vikings fan and they aren't so good this year ( for anyone that follows NFL football).

So the best way I know how to get through another Sunday of a Vikings loss, is to prepare some food. Last Sunday we had cheddar and pepper jack cheese, he had swine (aka Ham), and we popped in some pre-made meatballs from Target, with some Kraft Honey BBQ sauce. Of course I didn't take any pictures. BOO!


This week I decided to step things up a notch. I saw a reciepie on Pinterest for Beer Cheese dip. However, it didn't really have exact measurements. So I had to wing it.

Beer Cheese dip
2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese/shredded ( or any cheese you enjoy)
1 8oz package of cream cheese (make sure its at room temperature)
1 cup of any beer you like (we used Coors Light)
1 packet of Ranch dip mix




I mixed everything together in a bowl, before putting it in the crock-pot.  I let it cook for an hour or so. It could have been heated for longer if desired.  I served with bread and tortilla chips. We are defiantly doing this one next weekend!


We also made the meatballs again. They are the frozen pre-made store brand Target meatballs. We used about 3-4 of a bottle of Kraft Honey BBQ sauce. You can use it with any BBQ sauce you like. I just prefer Honey. Those cook on high in the Crock-Pot for about an hour or two. Depends on when you are ready to eat. Nothing to difficult with this. Just make sure if you keep them on high to stir often.



Next week, Ry is making his amazing Spinach-Artichoke dip, it's to die for!
