Weather ~ Comment on Pull Apart Cheese Bread ~ Punny Puns ~ Picture of the Day ~ Hot Cheesy Corn Dip ~ National English Toffee Day

Good 35º cloudy morning. No fog this morning! YEAH!!!
We stayed dark and cloudy and foggy all day yesterday. Our temps rose to a whopping 43º. Finally the clouds moved a bit so I could see my snowy mountain.....
We did get a little rain.
My friend Trish Bowler posted this on my blog comments page about the pull apart cheese bread I put on Sunday January 6ths blog...

" I made the cheese biscuits for dinner last night that you had on your blog yesterday. Sadly I didn't have the green chilis to put in. So I put a tad of olive oil and lots of cheese. They were wonderful with the pot roast and everyone gobbled them up right way."
A few more punny puns from Dave Clark...
  Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie.

 A hole has been found in the nudist camp wall. 
    The police are looking into it.

Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway.
      One hat said to the other: You stay here; I'll go on a head.

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

A sign on the lawn at a drug rehab center said: Keep off the Grass.

The soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray 
       is now a seasoned veteran.

When cannibals ate a missionary, they got a taste of religion.

 If you jumped off the bridge in Paris, you'd be in Seine.

A vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons. 
      The stewardess looks at him and says, I’m sorry, sir, 
       only one carrion allowed per passenger.

 Two fish swim into a concrete wall. One turns to the other and says, Dam!

Hot Cheesy Corn Dip..........
Sweet caramelized corn in a hot melted cheese dip that will disappear quickly from any party.
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups corn (fresh, thawed frozen or drained canned)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 jalapeno, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt, pepper and cayenne to taste
  1. Melt the butter in a pan over medium-high heat, add the corn, saute until the corn starts to turn golden brown, about 5 minutes, and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in the pan over medium-high heat add the onion, and pepper and saute until the onions are soft, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add the green onion, jalapeno and garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute.
  4. Mix the corn, onions, peppers, mayonnaise, cheeses and cayenne in a bowl, reserving some of the cheese.
  5. Pour the mixture into a baking pan and top with the reserved cheese.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350º oven until bubbling on the sides and golden brown on top, about 10-20 minutes.
Tip: Assemble the dip the day before and bake it on the day that you serve it to save some time. The bake time will be 10-15 minutes longer when baking right out of the fridge.
