May and June are always pretty busy for us music teachers. It’s not just all the concerts and performances. We also get the pleasure of doing instrument inventory, recruiting kids for next year, and the oh-so-fun cleaning of all the instruments. Gross.
But wait, there’s more!
Olivia is turning 1 (how is this even possible?!) and you better believe daddy is planning her an epic celebration. We are also having our main bathroom renovated in the coming weeks, so Asheley and I are scrambling to design the freaking thing. Oh, and one small detail… my parents moved in with us this past weekend. Mic drop.
Yea. Their new house is delayed by 2 months. Thanks Mr. Contractor. It’s all good though. Even though our home is a little more cramped than usual, we now we have a live in babysitter 🙂 I see a lot more date nights for the wife and I in the near future.
So life has been a bit hectic lately, which makes me even more excited to slow down this upcoming three-day weekend. I’ll get some much needed weeding done outside in the garden, and then get my Memorial Day celebration on with the family. I’m talking a grilling smorgasbord, complete with the quintessential backyard BBQ appetizer eats: DIP!
I’m a HUGE fan of dip. Pretty much anything and everything that I can plunge a crispy chip into… I’m a fan. And dips that involve corn?! Hello gorgeous… come and sit down right next to my face.
One might say that I’m slightly obsessed with corn. Especially when we’re talking about mixing it up with spicy sriracha lime mayo and smothering it with queso fresco and chives. What more can one want in life? …maybe a margarita.
If you’ve ever had Mexican Street Corn, you already know how epic it is. But let’s be honest. It can be a bit messy, and you have to worry about the whole corn getting stuck in your teeth thing.
With this Mexican Street Corn Dip with Avocado, you get all the flavor, and none of the mess. That’s a win-win in my book.
And you can totally keep things on the lighter side by swapping out regular tortilla chips with some homemade Flatout Flatbread chips! They couldn’t be easier to make. Just cut up some of your favorite Flatout Flatbreads into chip shapes, and pop ’em in the oven for a few minutes. Boom.
And for extra chip flavor, you can totally add some lime zest, salt, and chile powder on the chips! Totally optional, but come on… that sounds pretty fantastic.
Make sure to look for Flatout Flatbreads in the deli section of your grocery store, and make sure your local place carries them by using this store locator! And follow them on Instagram (I do!) to see some other really cool uses for their products!
