Cobb Dip – a delicious dip made with creamy ranch, lettuce, tomatoes, grilled corn, shredded cheese, bacon, and blue cheese crumbles. The perfect party dip!
Jorden and I had quite the day yesterday. The kind of day where every step of the way feels like a feat. The kind of day where everyone around you seems 100 times more annoying than usual. The kind of day where all you can do is hold your breath and wait for it to be over. What happened, you ask? Absolutely nothing – just life with 4 kids!
Okay. I know I’m not the first one to have 4 kids. And I know there are plenty of people who have more! I also know (although it’s not always easy to keep in mind) that I’m oh so lucky to have them. But. Right now, life feels exhausting. Whether it’s because we have a newborn or because the others are home from school or because our 3 year old is a terror….it all just feels like a lot. And sometimes getting through the day really does feel like an accomplishment!
I know summer is supposed to be fun and carefree, full of late nights and fire flies and cookouts with friends. But this summer is NOT that. So, I must admit, there is part of me that is really looking forward to fall! The kids will be back in school, schedules will resume, Myla will be taking regular naps (fingers crossed), and things will feel fresh and new. Or so I’m telling myself.
One thing I KNOW will feel different is that it will be football season! Which holds no interest to me outside of the fact that football games are a great excuse to get together with friends. And they’re easy. You just make some yummy food, turn on the TV, and you’re all set. Simple. Exactly what I need right now! Speaking of simple, this Cobb Dip is a super simple, delicious dip that’s PERFECT for football season! Based on the classic Cobb Salad (one of my favorites), it’s packed with bold flavors and great with chips, crackers, or pretzel flats. It’s just what you need to make life feel not only bearable, but actually fun….and definitely delicious!!
