Party Like its 1999!!

New Years Eve is quickly approaching, as in...It's TOMORROW!
For the first time that I can remember since we've been married (has it been six years already?), me and Eric actually both have New Years Eve off of work.  Forget the fact that I have to drag myself out of bed at 5:30a.m. on New Years day to go to work, I'm gonna party like its 1999!!  By partying, I mean we are gonna stay home and play Michael Jackson on the Wii and eat some great food while waiting for the ball to drop.

There are a few things I plan on making and I thought I would share with my dear readers...if there is anyone out there ;-)

Buffalo Chicken Dip
This is a favorite at my house, it is tangy and a little spicy and absolutely delicious on a Frito's Scoop.
2  cans chunk chicken (or 3 breasts of chicken shredded)
1 8oz. Package Cream Cheese
1 Package Sharp Cheddar Cheese
3/4 cup Ranch Salad Dressing
1/2 cup (more or less to taste) Hot Sauce.

Mix all of the ingredients and pour into a small crock pot.  Turn the crock pot on high and cook until bubbling.  Once is starts bubbling, I turn it down to low to keep the cheese dip hot for hours.  Serve with Frito's Scoops or your favorite tortilla chip.

Yummy Little Smokies
These delicious little things make my heart go pitter patter. 


1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbs. Grape Jelly
1/3 cup chopped onion
2 (16 ounce) packages little wieners

Mix all sauce ingredients in a small crock pot.  Add the little weiners and cook until all warm and yummy or until you cant wait any longer to eat them.  Enjoy :-)

I plan on posting some more great information about my New Years plans and the Great Spending Freeze of 2011!  Until then, have a safe and happy new year!

Merry Day After Christmas

Enjoy your day after Christmas.  Be Thankful for what you have and laugh a little at this poem.  I sure did!

Twas the Day After Christmas

Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house,

Every creature was hurting -- even the mouse.

The toys were all broken, their batteries dead;
Santa passed out, with some ice on his head.

Wrapping and ribbons just covered the floor, while
Upstairs the family continued to snore.

And I in my T-shirt, new Reeboks and jeans,
Went into the kitchen and started to clean.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the sink to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the curtains, and threw up the sash.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a little white truck, with an oversized mirror.

The driver was smiling, so lively and grand;
The patch on his jacket said "U.S. POSTMAN."

With a handful of bills, he grinned like a fox
Then quickly he stuffed them into our mailbox.

Bill after bill, after bill, they still came.
Whistling and shouting he called them by name:

"Now Dillard's, now Broadway's, now Penny's and Sears
Here's Levitz's and Target's and Mervyn's--all here!!

To the tip or your limit, every store, every mall,
Now chargeaway-chargeaway-chargeaway all!"

He whooped and he whistled as he finished his work.
He filled up the box, and then turned with a jerk.

He sprang to his truck and he drove down the road,
Driving much faster with just half a load.

Then I heard him exclaim with great holiday cheer,
