The best part about this Weight Watchers Taco Dip recipe is that it’s not just for the Super Bowl. It’s for any gathering, and though it would mostly be a side/appetizer, I’m totally down to eat it for dinner, too.
Weight Watchers Taco Dip
I love Weight Watchers because fruits and veggies are almost ALL zero points, so you can fill up without feeling restricted. The stuff you really have to watch is what you dip with: chips, cookies, etc.
When you’re short on funds, but your friends, family, and especially kids, still need Christmas gifts, you have to get creative if you’re asking how to afford Christmas.
We all know that Christmas isn’t just about gifts, but it seems that the number one question I’m asked from August through December is “Will you adopt my family for Christmas?”. I have to budget to afford Christmas for our girls. I’ve rarely received child support (yay, deadbeats!), and our income is well below the “poverty” guidelines, though it is plenty for our family. We work really hard to pay our bills and save money for everything, including holidays.
How to Afford Christmas When You Can’t Afford Christmas
Affording Christmas when you can’t really afford Christmas is about planning. Don’t wait until the last minute or you’ll end up frantic. If you DID wait til the last minute, we’ll talk about that, too.
Best spinach dip recipe? Says who? Says me! ;)
The only thing I miss about living in Missouri is being able to see family during the holidays. It’s not even so much my family, but Rachel’s family was always great to be around (except this one Thanksgiving…). They loved that we brought tons of food over any chance we got. We both love to bake, so it was a given that we’d cover the desserts during the holiday visits and on Game Day! However, we always liked making things like artichoke dip, taco dip, etc. The #1 dip through the years has been this one, which is why it’s called the best spinach dip!
Blood Orange Mocktail with Grapefruit
Blood oranges are f’ing delicious. I mean that. Rachel goes crazy over them. Any time I get my hands on a blood orange, I savor it. This recipe calls for blood orange soda, so if you don’t have a blood orange just add more grapefruit juice.

This post will be helpful even if you’re not a mom, but a lot of the time as moms we get overwhelmed and feel like we’re juggling too much at once. In this sponsored post on behalf of Concordia University, we’re going to have an honest chat about goal setting (and achieving!).
