Grammy's Dinner Date

We had a super fun dinner party tonight at our friends Sharlee and Ryan's house. We cooked some food, watched the Grammy's, and played with our two baby boys! {Ryan and Shar have a little boy named Drake who is totally delish and adorable} We ate a ton, listened to awesome music, and had fun party time with the two boys! They know how to get a crowd going.

Here are the two things we brought as our dishes for the night. #1 we bought the steak teriyaki kabobs from AJ's that are TO DIE FOR! I always love them. And a super yummy avocado cheese dip courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis....LOVE me some Everyday Italian!!! This dip was super easy and amazing, try it out for you next party!

Avocado Goat Cheese Dip with Whole-Wheat Pita Chips


  • 1 package whole-wheat pita chips (cut into 6 triangles each)
  • 3 ripe avocados, peeled pitted and cut into chunks
  • cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more, if needed
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 ounces goat cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spread pita triangles on a sheet tray. Bake in the oven until crisp and slightly toasted. Chips will need to be rotated twice while baking.
In a bowl combine avocadosgarlic, cumin and salt. Use an electric hand mixer to mix ingredients together. Add lime juice, cream cheese and goat cheese pulsing until smooth and blended well. Add a bit more salt, if necessary.

PS. I didn't do the home made pita chips,,,,who do you think I am? Martha freaking Stewart? UM NO! Store bought tortillas chips worked fabulously!
