Favorite Things....

Good Sunday Morning!!!  I am gonna have a BIG post for you today.. that was your WARNING FOR PHOTOS!! and TALKING! HA HA!! :) 

2nd week of our PIO challenge! P is for.. (anything you want!!) So for my share this week I am using my gift wrap from our Favorites Thing Gift Exchange!! We do it every year, and it is sooooo FUN!!! This year my gift was these FABULOUS dip mixes from The Coeur d"Alene Dressing Co. We tried them while on our last day of vacation in CDA and I LOVED them.. and their dressing/sauces are FABULOUS too!! (some going out for xmas gifts.. and right to me too! HA HA!)

So here is how I packaged up my goodies!!! 
I had to make up 9 bags !!
 Here is what was inside of each of them!!! Yum! and of course a wine key from Steve!! Gotta love Amazon Wine!!-
Here is what I took for sharing! Yum!!
Recipe Here! I did cheat this time and buy my spinach and arti dip made! :) Added some fresh garlic and parm. cheese and it was DELISH! Have made it the reg. way too and just as YUMMY! Premade phyllo cups are the BEST! :) )

Thank You if you made it this far!! Have a GREAT day!!
