Sometimes in life, you just have to work with what you’ve got. There are a never ending series of excuses one could give for not trying something new like say… starting a new blog. No big beautiful kitchen. No impressive fancy camera. No experience. No friends. On the other hand, you could just forget all that, and do it anyway. That’s sort of what Awesome on 20 is all about.
You likely won’t see any perfectly beautiful photos on this blog, at least not for a while. I have a cheap Kodak point and shoot that I bought in Taiwan. It’s not great, but it works. You also won’t see an endless variety of props in the background. I only use what I actually have in my kitchen. I don’t have money to spend on props, or a place to store them. This is real life, kids.
What you will see is things that I actually use in my house, and food that I really eat. I do my best with what I have. And on the first weekend after a month of wedding guests, what I had was some cooked sausage meat and some leftover cream cheese. I was exhausted and didn’t want to put in a lot of effort. I needed something I could make with my eyes closed. A little bit of fridge raiding turned out to be a pretty scrumptious dip which we were only too happy to call dinner.
- 8 oz sausage, cooked
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- half can Rotel
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- Sturdy chips for dipping
- Put everything in a skillet to heat the sausage and melt the cream cheese.
- Stir until it all comes together.
- Pile it onto your favorite chips and shovel it in your face.
- If your sausage is uncooked, just crumble it up and cook it in the skillet before adding the other ingredients.
