Frozen ~ Buffalo Chicken Dip ~ Lager Day


Good 28º frozen foggy again morning. 

When it's this cold it looks like it has snowed. Took awhile to warm up yesterday ... by 11am we hit 37º.

Like yesterday morning, a fire in the wood stove right away!!



Since "party time" is coming up..... Christmas, New Years, etc... 
Ok, let's make a super good Buffalo Chicken Dip


4 T. butter
1 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce
2 8oz packages cream cheese, softened
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded (store bought rotisserie works great)
1 cup blue cheese crumbles
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Carrot sticks, celery sticks, tortilla chips, bell peppers, and pretzel chips for dipping....
In small pot over med high heat, melt butter. Whisk in hot sauce and set aside.
In slow cooker add cream cheese, top with shredded chicken, hot sauce butter, blue cheese and mozzarella cheese. Cook on low 2 hours or on high 1 hour.
Or... bake in 350º oven for 20-30 minutes until hot and bubbly. 
Serve with dippers.....

National Lager Day

It’s National Lager Day! Lager is a type of German beer that is bottom fermented and lightly hopped. It is usually stored for at least three weeks after brewing before it is served.
Lager is the dominant style of beer throughout the world, except in England where ale is the favorite style. The only real difference between ale and lager is that ales ferment and age quickly at warm temperatures, while lagers ferment and age slowly at cool temperatures. These different types of fermentation allow for a vast difference in flavor and aroma.
