Easy Entertaining

Everything seems to have fallen in a heap around here lately. I have found it near impossible to stay organised and keep up with all that is happening. However, I now have a daily schedule and hopefully that, along with the calender and my diary, will help keep me on track. Well, I'm keeping my fingers crossed anyway!

We had friends around for a drink yesteday so I tried a dip I'd had my eye on for a while. I found that a few changes in measurements were needed, so here is my version.





Mexican Layered Dip




225g can reduced fat cream, chilled in can
½ pkt french onion soup mix
2 avocados, mashed
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
2 medium tamoatoes, chopped
1 cup grated tasty cheese

Shake cream well. Open can and combine with french onion soup mix. Spread evenly into serving dish,

Combine avocado with lemon juice and sweet chilli sauce. Spread evenly over french onion layer. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

Arrange chopped tomatoes and cheese on top. Serve with corn chips.

REd Dirt Mummy I don't know where you find the time to do all you do. I have watching the weather and was thinking of you when George let fly.
Love reading aobut #1 and#2 and the picture as dressed as fairy was just cute.
I am inspired to try some of the recipes -but a little bone lazy/
Love from the Hills of and Valleys of Toodyay - is that a bit obscure?

Oh no! Not another one! I see you've another cyclone heading your way. Hope Kara stays out of your backyard! Yay for the rain, though. We could do with a bit more of that down here!

Hi Suse. I'm so glad you managed to leave a comment at last. Obscure? Maybe, but I still knew it was you LOL!

Hi Chantalle. At least Kara has cooled things down today, a very pleasant 28 with a sprinkling of rain! We're on Blue at the moment but she's a bit unpredictable - typical woman really LOL.
