Do you have Twitter? Wanna win $250? I thought so. Just enter by tweeting to me how much you would save on your super Bowl Groceries if you had the AMEX blue cash card that gives 3% back with the hashtag #bluecashmeifyoucan
Your tweet should look like this, “@ohsweetbasil I would save (insert amount) on my groceries! #bluecashmeifyoucan”
I was trying to think up a new twist on a classic BLT the other day and my mind started to wander to the Super Bowl and what dip to make. Every party needs at least one dip. In my own personal opinion that is.
I couldn’t help but wonder about doing a BLT dip. Something a little different than the typical dip, but still warm and creamy. I think next time I will toast the baguette and probably double the actual dip, but other than that this was a total score. We loved it. It is not healthy in any way, but if you want to you can at least pretend it is with all of that chopped lettuce on top. We used Red Leaf, but if you must do iceburg.
See? Don’t you think that toasted baguette slices would be better? I do. This dip truly is delicious and I’m excited to see what all of you think.
What Kind of Lettuce Is Most Nutritional?
Leafy greens are great for you.
The darker color of green, the more nutritious.
Kale, spinach, romaine, arugula, and other dark greens are the most nutritious salad greens.
Are Tomatoes Good For You?
Tomatoes are high in antioxidants, which have been linked to reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.
Tomatoes are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate and vitamin K.
What Kind of Bread Can You Substitute For Baguette?
You could substitute French bread, Italian bread or sour dough bread for a baguette.
