Ultimate Blog Party 2010!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

I'm still green in the world of blogging - started just last month(!), but happened upon The Ultimate Blog Party today, hosted by 5 Minutes For Mom... what a fantastic idea! I love to find new and interesting blogs and of course gain a few readers to mine... not to mention the flitterific (yes, I have little girls!) list of prizes!!

I am a Mom (well, duh!) and like other Moms know, when you're facing a hard day, a tough decision, a bragging moment, or a sweet memory who better to understand where you've been and where you're headed than another Mom?! And so, my blog (and FB page) were born!

And since this is a party, I thought I'd share a quick recipe for a fresh Nacho/bread dip that I LOOOVE (courtesy of my Moma)...

Dip (makes 1 7x11 sized dish)

1 pkg. Philly Cream Cheese
1/2 C. Sour Cream
1/4 C. Miracle Whip (Mayo)
1 C. Salsa
2 C. Shredded Cheese
1 lg. Tomato (finely chopped)
1 Green Pepper (finely chopped)
1 Bunch Green Onions (finely chopped)

Mix first 3 ingredients and then spread in bottom of dish. Pour the salsa over this. Then cover the salsa with cheese and then spread the veggies on top.

This is a super easy, super yummy dish! Enjoy...!

Now that we've filled our (virtual) bellies, here are my top 3 prize picks from the US & Canada List... *fingers and toes crossed*

From the US & Canada list:
1. $50 Target Gift Card offered by Peggy Gorman
2. $50 Paypal Money Transfer offered by American Muslim Mom
3. $50 Gift Card to The Recessionista Shop offered by Recessionista

If my top 3 picks have already been chosen, I'd love to win any of the following (in the listed order)... or anything else related to little girls - I have three of them!!

Prize numbers 39, 15, 13, 24, 30

Good luck and happy reading and blogging!! Let's get it started!
