Pizza Dip

Pin It

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and that all the fathers had a very wonderful Father's Day!

Yesterday I spent the day with my amazing dad and all we did was sit around, talk, eat and play card games, but that's all we need. We all really have a lot of fun together and enjoy each other's company. We also watched the end of the U.S. Open and the guys cheered on McIlroy while the girls critiqued the outfits and commented on their putting skills (even though we've never golfed a day in our lives). Pretty standard.

For an appetizer, I decided to make this Pizza Dip since it seemed hearty and appropriate for Father's Day. We devoured it. In 17 seconds. We even had to wait a couple hours before we could throw the hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill since this was so filling, but we just couldn't stop. Hope you all enjoy it, too!
