To honor the beginning of the college football season (and heck - the NFL preseason is already underway), BooMama is hosting a DipTacular recipe exchange. I love football and I love dip, so I'm taking part! I wish these were original recipes from my kitchen, but alas, I cannot take credit. They are delish though!!

Corn Dip
from Mish Mash

- 2 cans Mexicorn, drained
- 1 can Rotel tomatoes, drained
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1 cup mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Mix all ingredients together and chill. Serve with tortilla chips.

Reuben Spread
from Southern Living Slow-Cooker Cookbook

- 1/2 pound sliced deli corned beef, coarsely chopped
- 1 cup sauerkraut, drained and chopped
- 1 tsp. cider vinegar
- 1/4 tsp. caraway seeds
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup Thousand Island dressing
- 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

Stir together first 7 ingredients and 1 cup Swiss cheese; spoon into a lightly greased 2 or 3 quart slow cooker. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese.

Cover and cook on LOW 2 to 3 hours. Serve with rye Melba rounds or pretzel rods (I like to use the Keebler Townhouse Flipsides crackers - one side cracker, the other side pretzel). Makes 3 1/2 cups.

ENJOY and Happy Football watching!!!

And...this has nothing to do with dip or football, but I thought I'd post some pictures of the little one since I haven't for a while. She's working on sitting up...

Definitely Daddy's girl...

Happy Friday of Labor Day weekend!
