Friday Foto Fun with the Ewing Family

It's time for Carrie's Friday Foto Fun:-)

It's my 300th post and I was going to do a giveaway or something like that however, after my mom's catherization, she ended up in the ICU. No fun:-( She is going to be fine but I am just beat from running back and forth to the hospital and worrying.

So instead, I decided to dedicate this post to my husband's family.

That's my MiL on the right and Hubby in the gray and...

... the distinguished gentleman in the hat and the lovely lady in the white shirt were our hosts (they got that hostess gift I wrote about last week:-)

Last but not least, my FiL in the red hat:-)

They are so great and they read my blog (so you know that they are cool:-) They are the universe's way of evening out my life for me. They are always teaching me things. For example:

1. Did you know that Citibank is the only credit card with virtual account numbers? I had never heard of this. Apparently, it is for online purchases. They give you a temporary number that is hooked up to your account. It is a way to prevent theft. Very cool...I did not know that.

2. Did you know if you dig a hole next to a slug infested plant, put a plastic container in the hole and put an inch of beer in it plastic container, it will rid your plant of said slugs. (It cures what ales you...sorry...couldn't resist.) But isn't that cool? I did not know that.

3. And finally, my FiL's other brother and his wife were not caught on film however, I did get this great recipe from her:

Aunt Mary's Cheese Dip
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbl green onions, chopped fine
1 Tbl minced garlic
1 1/2 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
2-8oz. package sliced almonds

Combine all ingredients except for almonds in a bowl. Spread in 9 or 10-inch pie plate. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve warm with crackers.
