The holidays are behind you and now what to do? Our home is still bustling in the New Year with sports games and playoffs. Do you entertain for the big game? When I say entertain I do not mean anything elaborate, just a few extra people sitting around the TV and a few snacks.
You may wonder what two ingredients you need to throw a wonderful game day party? Well Ritz and Coke of course. Every good party should start with these two ingredients. Of course every good cracker and soda combination needs a fun cheese dip!
This make ahead homemade pub style cheese dip recipe should be made in advance and is a great compliment to your game day menu. All you need is a food processor and a few ingredients and you have a flavorful snack and crowd pleaser.
The recipe is best made with block cheese, but not having much notice before guests arrived, I used shredded cheese. The result was a less smooth cheese dip but the flavor exceeded my expectations.
Process this mixture until well blended then add your liquid until you get a good smooth consistency.
Of course you need a good cracker to serve these on. Of course I prefer the Original Ritz Crackers with most cheese dips. These classic crackers are rich and buttery and even the simplest topping makes an impression on my taste buds.
Now to decorate for your game day party. In minutes you can create this easy no sew Football Field Runner.
During football season be sure to be stocked with Coca-Cola. My family likes Coca-Cola Zero Sugar and buying the 500 ML 6-pack saves on leftovers going flat. Coca-Cola Zero Sugar has the real Coke taste with zero calories.
