Cooking Out with Friends

David and I had such a good weekend.  The weather was beautiful, and we were able to spend quality time with family and friends.  On Saturday, I had a much-needed pool day with my dear friend, Emmylou.  We enjoyed the cooler weather and catching up on girl time! 

On Saturday night, several of our friends came over for dinner - Brittany & Jimmy Dale Chisolm and Sarah Beth & Brent Gary and their kids Walker and Collins.  We watched the Mississippi State game, grilled hamburgers, and indulged in some delicious appetizers:

Sarah Beth brought this tasty pizza dip.  We all loved it, so she shared the recipe:

1 8 oz cream cheese (softened)
1 jar pizza sauce
2 cups mozarella cheese
pepperonis (as many as you would like on top)

Simply layer beginning with cream cheese, then pizza sauce, then cheese, then pepperonis. 
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.  Enjoy!

Sarah Beth also brought Captain Rodney's Dip. 
I will ask her for the recipe and share that one too. 
It was a crowd favorite!

David and I made Rotel Dip with Sausage.  All you need is:

1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 lbs Velveeta Cheese (cubed)
1 can mild Rotel
1 lb Hot Jimmy Dean Sausage

Put soup, cheese, and rotel in the crock pot. 
Brown the sausage and mix in with other ingredients.
Cook on low for 1-2 hours.  Serve with chips. 
On Sunday, we had a fun lunch after church with the Ellis family.  It's always nice to spend Sunday afternoon catching up with them and hearing about everyone's week.  After a lazy Sunday afternoon, we went to Jimmy Dale and Brittany's house to cook out with the same group from Saturday plus the Lees and the Deans.  It was the perfect night for a cook out to welcome a new season.  I hope you enjoyed the fall weekend!
