Super Bowl Dip and a Thrift Trip

This is an easy dip/spread to make for your Super Bowl party.

Combine 2 large packages of cream cheese with 1 1/2 cups of mayonnaise.

Mix in 1 tablespoon of cracked black pepper.

Add 1 bunch of green onions sliced thin. Use the bottoms and the tops. Add 6 ounces of coarsely chopped green olives and 8 ounces of coarsely chopped black olives.

Shred 2 cups of cheese such as Monterrey Jack , Cheddar or Colby.

Mix it all together to combine.

Serve it on Triscuits or your favorite crackers.

The Blog Tech and I hit thrift stores yesterday. I have a friend who loves to decorate for every holiday so I made her a Valentine's heart for her front door. Sorry for the quality of the photos. It was very sunny in the garden room this morning.

I bought a grapevine wreath at a thrift store for 1.29.

I found the tinsel for 99 cents, the larger red balls for 49 cents and a huge bag of the small red balls for 99 cents.

I hot glued the large balls on the top of the wreath and used the smaller ones along the sides and down to the bottom.

For less than 5.00 my friend got this for her door.

This is one of the best deals I have come across in quite some time. These heavy iron owl andirons with glass eyes were 9.00!!!
