Black Friday Steals on GroopDealz!

One thing we love to do after our Thanksgiving feast is shop off all that food! :) In Utah, it’s usually pretty chilly by this time of year, and waiting outside in line just gets so long(and cold)! While we still venture out for a few things, we have realized how much easier it is to shop from the comfort of our own home! They have AMAZING deals online (even before cyber Monday) – and there are no lines or crowds of crazy people! We’ve mentioned our love of GroopDealz before – and they have brought their A-game for the holidays!

Groopdealz-clothes

I am in love with that cardigan – I’m going to need one in all three colors! From cozy sweaters to leggings (and more leggings!) – I could buy everything on the site. Not to mention their awesome jewelry -

GroopDealz-Jewelry

I could stack those bracelets for days ;) And the necklace is only $8.99!
And don’t forget your kids! They have fleece-lined leggings for your girls, and great jackets for your boys!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day and spending it with those you love.  We are so thankful for each one of you and that you take the time to read our blog.  It means so much to us!

I don’t know about you, but the men in our family love watching plenty of football on Thanksgiving.  These tasty sandwiches are the perfect tailgate snack!  You could also make them with leftover Thanksgiving turkey and they would be just as delicious!

Tailgate-Sandwiches-Recipe


Tailgate Sandwiches Recipe:
(makes 12 servings)

Ingredients:
1 (12 count) package King’s Hawaiian Bread Rolls
1 pound black forest ham, cut into 12 slices
12 slices swiss cheese
1 (8 ounce) container Philadelphia Chive & Onion Cream Cheese Spread
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Tablespoon dried minced onion
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cut rolls in half and place the bottom halves in a 9×13″ baking pan.  Place a slice of ham on each roll and top with a slice of swiss cheese.  On the top half of each roll, spread a generous amount of cream cheese spread.  Replace the tops of the rolls to make sandwiches.  In a small bowl, combine melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, minced onion and Parmesan cheese.  Pour over sandwiches and let sit for 20 minutes.  Cover baking pan with foil and bake for 20 minutes or until heated through.

Fresh Spinach Dip Recipe

Fresh Spinach Dip

 

Every holiday our grandma would make this delicious spinach dip.  She would have all kinds of veggies for us to dip.  It is easy to make and whips up so fast.  Your family will love this.  A great dip for your holiday dinner!

Fresh Spinach Dip
Ingredients:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 1/2  cups of mayonnaise (we use Best Foods brand)
1 teaspoon accent
2 tablespoons minced onion
5 ounces fresh spinach leaves (about 1/2 package)
1/4 cup half and half

Directions:
Chop up your spinach leaves in a food processor or blender.  Then put in a bowl and set aside.
Cut up cream cheese into small blocks and put in the food processor. Add the accent and minced onion. Blend together well. Then add the mayonnaise and blend until smooth. Now add the chopped up spinach and 1/4 cup of half and half to the cream cheese/mayo mixture and blend well. If it is too thick, you can add a little more half and half until you get it to the consistency you like.  We like our dip on the thick side! :)  That’s it!  Start dipping your veggies and enjoy!!
Makes about 12 servings.

To check out the food processor I used look  HERE.
