**UPDATE TO THIS POST**
we already welcomed this cute new baby boy to our family :)
In case you aren’t following me on instagram, you might have missed my big announcement….
yes, SURPRISE! We are upgrading to a family of FIVE at the end of May! It was a surprise baby but we couldn’t be more excited!
For those of you wondering, I guess I will share a few simple facts about this pregnancy so far. If you don’t care, just scroll down to the recipe :) lol no hurt feelings. Do you want me to share updates with this pregnancy on this blog or keep it to food?
In case you are wondering:
why I haven’t been posting quite as much, the morning sickness has been a little more intense with this baby. I have been pregnant with BOTH a GIRL and a BOY and their pregnancies were both SUPER SIMILAR. Hardly sick with either. I had seriously textbook pregnancies with both genders. So we can rule out the old wives tale that you are more sick with one gender than another. Who knows what this baby is because I have been sick more days than both my other pregnancies combined! Yikes.
I think its a girl. My hubby thinks its a boy. There is only one babe in there (confirmed with two ultrasounds). One of us at least has correct intuition.
I have been craving ICE CREAM sandwiches and french fries with fry sauce. Not McDonald’s fries. YUCK! or any fast food fries for that matter. It HAS to be the nice thick gourmet french fries from Red Robin or some place similar. Two cravings on complete opposite ends of the spectrum but I can’t fight them. I give into one or both daily. I’m am honestly surprised and shocked that I haven’t gained any weight yet. I am picturing them having to roll me into the delivery room if these two cravings keep up. Any and all meat makes me sick right now. Doesn’t matter chicken or red meat. Can’t have it.
There you have it. A little bit of insight behind this darling surprise baby :) Now onto today’s recipe.
During these times of
morning all-day-but-mostly-night sickness, My sweet mother has stepped up to the plate to help me cook some delicious recipes for you in the past few weeks that I have been sick. Doesn’t she deserve mother of the year for that? I think so! AND it has meat because I know not all of you are anti-meat right now unlike me haha!
Lets talk about my mom’s Buffalo Chicken Dip for a minute. If you haven’t tried it yet, it is one EASY recipe on the blog you are missing out on. It made my hubby’s “Hubby Favorites” list AND is the most requested appetizer I get for parties and get togethers.
I was visiting my mother a couple weekends ago and we decided to turn this incredible dip into just as amazing of a dinner/appetizer (can be either depending on your plans). Since I can’t have meat right now, I surveyed everyone who sampled them so you could know for sure that these bad boys are INSANELY good! We had them for dinner, but I cut them up to serve as cute appetizers as well. We served them with a blue cheese sauce that completed the recipe to pure perfection. You are going to love them!
If you are serving a larger crowd, definitely DOUBLE the recipe.
