Reading away the Summer

September is knocking away next door! I cannot believe that tomorrow happens to be September 1st! It seems like the last 8 months have FLOWN by. I consider, no matter how hot it is outside, September to be the start of fall. I love to read and as long as I have books waiting on hand, I will read and read till I've read them all. My favorite books to read are extremely cheesy, the Chick-Lit kinds. But they are easy reads that keep me entertained. So at the end of April, I went onto Amazon and purchased 10 books that were left from the collection of authors I enjoy. Starting at the beginning of May, I put the books in order and started to read. Over the past 4 months, I have read over 23 books and I have 5 more I'm starting this week. I have read everything from girly books to Bristol Palin's new one to Safe Haven and The Help. Reading has definitely made the summer go by, given me something to do at the pool while working on a tan and allowed me to take moments out and just relax with a good book!

Almost that time of the year!

In less than 5 Days I will be parked in front of the TV and decked out in my Michigan Gear! I cannot wait for College Football to start! We have a new coach and some great players so I am sure we will have a much better season this year, unlike the last few years.

In honor of football season. I will be making Buffalo Wing Dip for my game watching food! I got this recipe from our office manager, Angie and it is my favorite!

Buffalo Wing Dip

4 Large Cans of All White Meat Chicken in Water
1 Bottle of Nature's Fresh Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing
1 Bottle of Frank's Red Hot Sauce
2  - 8oz. Packages of Light Cream Cheese
1 package of Monterey/Jack Cheese

Drain and shred the chicken in a bowl. Pour the bottle of hot sauce in and mix till chicken is covered. Let this soak while you prepare everything else.

In a saucepan, add the ranch dressing and 2 packages of cream cheese (Room Temperature) together and blend. Use whisk to combine until creamy.

In a 13x9 pan, pour the Chicken/Hot Sauce mixture on the bottle and spread evenly. Take the Ranch/Cream Cheese mixture and spread on top of the chicken.

Turn the oven to 350 and cook for 25 minutes. Take out and pour the Monterey/Jack Cheese blend on top of the dip and let it cook for 5 more minutes.

I love to eat mine with celery but lots of people use carrots, chips and crackers! Enjoy!

Go Big Blue!
