The Beauty of Drop-In Neighbors...
Hope this Father’s Day was a happy one for you and your family! With Memorial Day, Fourth of July, block parties and reunions, summer brings us several planned occasions to celebrate with friends and family. If your home is like ours, it also invites lots of unplanned gatherings.
The kids playing outside with friends until the brink of dinnertime and beyond… “just stay for dinner, won’t you?” Or, the family is working in the yard all day and playing outside when a friendly chat with the neighbors becomes a drink or two and moves to the backyard. Good times. We have a few suggestions for handling these impromptu gatherings with ease and grace. You’ll be out there trying to stir up a get together when you see how easy it is!
Individual bean dips in Kaleidoscope Dessert Skirtz cupcake wrappers
This elegant tray of munchies took five minutes to assemble. Each guest gets their own double-dippable cup of bean dip. The Dessert Skirtz make it look so special—your guests will be blown away at your incredible hostessing skills!
It is simply a layer of refried beans mixed with taco seasoning, a layer of sour cream, then cheese, tomato and avocado.
Now, don’t stress if you don’t have all of the ingredients! Build them anyway with what you can find in your fridge and pantry. Just keep in mind when you are at the store each time to stock up on some of these summer gathering staples!
Serve these beauties in clear 9 ounce cups skirted with your favorite Dessert Skirtz cupcake wrappers for a ridiculously easy, but stunning display.
