Happy Monday! How was your weekend?

Ours felt like a nonstop food fest. My 3 year old has a birthday this week and since my husband has 24-hour staff duty that day, we kind of celebrated on Saturday with breakfast at IHOP. And then my husband is going back to the Paleo diet starting today, so he wanted to squeeze in all his favorite foods the rest of the weekend. I’m still full.

Anyway, I made this for the Saints game yesterday and I have to say, it was much better than the game. Holy stressful!

My husband had a very strange opinion on it. He tried it and said – and this is a direct quote – “It’s kind of weird with the corn.”

Well it is a corn dip.

I ran to Target shortly after it came out of the oven and by the time I got home, 3/4 of the pan was gone. So apparently he got over the weird pretty quickly.

I, of course, loved it. I really dig corn salsa so this was right up my alley. It’s obviously not a salsa but you know what I mean!
