Last weekend we had our first round of Christmas at the farm with my husband’s dad’s house. We had such a great time. My sister in law loves to bring fun games to get everyone involved, so we played tiddlywinks and pickup sticks. Both where a lot of fun. Since my in-laws did all the cooking I wanted to bring something so I chose this quick dip to munch on while we visited before eating. It’s really simple and packed a lot of flavor. I’m glad most of it was eaten then because the next day it was so addicting hubby and I finished it off. It taste really similar to Alouette cheese spread. I will be making this for future parties I can’t get enough of it!
