The recipes were such a hit that I wanted to share them with all of you, too.
First-I greeted everyone with crackers and "Lockerman Dip" an awesome recipe I got from one of my favorite retro-recipe blogs, "Dinner Is Served 1972". It was easy and a real crowd pleaser! Just some cream cheese, pimentos and olives-that's it! Ok, I *did* add a teensy bit of paprika for color!
|Lockerman Dip-I had to refill this tray THREE times!|

Nacho Mama's Caker Bars!
2 and a half sleeves of crushed reduced-fat Ritz crackers
Half a package of dark chocolate chips
Half a package of Toffee bits (like Heath)
1 can fat free sweetened condensed MILK
Mix all ingredients and pour into an 8 x 8 pan lined with parchment. Bake at 325 for 25 minutes, cool and slice into 25 squares. (for you Weight Watchers, these are 4 pointsplus per serving)
These were SO. GOOD. Kind of like a "blondie" but waaaay easier to make! Thanks, "Caker Cooking!"
|Gravity-defying CAFE GEL-LATTE! (with optional light whipped cream)|
|Ta-da! TRES LECHES!!! Just a small piece, though!|
After all those yummy foods the kids and I decided to try and burn off some of those calories by dancing EL PASO POSITIVO, of course!
A great time was had by all-maybe too great?
