Game Day Spinach Dip



Game Day Spinach Dip

College Football has always been a big deal in our house. I was born and raised a loyal BYU fan. I planned my wedding date on a weekend that they weren't playing. Today is the BIG rivalry game between BYU and UTAH. While I am sporting my BYU jersey and cheering on my Cougars I wanted to share this delicious recipe. 




Big games, great food and time with family have created great memories and now I get to created new ones with my own kids. Today I wanted to make Spinach Dip. This is by far the best Spinach Dip recipe that I have found, it is easy to make, packed with flavor and a great appetizer. 

If you are ever asked to bring an appetizer or want to bring something to work to share, try this. People love it, they will want the recipe and it is always gone. 

You can use crackers or broken bread from a bread bowl.

Fall weather is here and I am in the mood to get in the kitchen again and start cooking. This will be one of many new recipes to come!  Enjoy. 

 Game Day Spinach Dip




Ingredients

1 packet of Knorr Vegetable Soup
1 pint of sour cream (16 oz)
1 cup of mayo
3 green onions sliced
1 small can of water chestnuts chopped
1 box of frozen chopped, cooked and drained spinach

Directions

Thaw out the frozen spinach, drain all the water and squeeze any liquid out of it. I use a paper towel after to get any excess left.  Chop up the onions and the water chestnuts. In a medium size bowl combine all the ingredients and let sit in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours.  Make sure it is mixed together really well. Mix up before serving.

The Triple Threat - Three MUST HAVE Essential Oil Blends




The Triple Threat 

 Essential Oil Blends I can't live without!

These are three Essential Oil Blends that I keep with me AT ALL TIMES! I have one set by my desk and a set in my purse of all three. By having these blends with me I basically have a traveling FIRST AID KIT with Essential Oils to treat many different things.  

 Christmas is coming up, one or all three would be a great gift to give someone.*

*The Triple Threat is now available for purchase. You will receive a 5ml roller bottle with a steel roller ball for each blend. The Triple Threat includes: Jeddy's Blend, The Heachache Buster and The Healing Stick. This would be a wonderful gift and for $2 extra you can have it in a gift box.  Shipping is included in the price. Please add $6 for international shipping. 


                                                           The Triple Threat
                                         

THINK CHRISTMAS!


The Headache Buster Blend

We all know that moment when we feel that pressure in our head and the beginning of a miserable headache is about to begin. Use this blend at the first sign of it. 

This blend works great for a headache, migraine, neck pain, knee pain, tendinitis, arthritis and more pain. This is a must have blend if you are a headache sufferer.

Roll it on your temples, top of forehead and behind the neck and brain stem depending on where the headache is and enjoy the relief. 



 My husband uses it for his neck and shoulder pain. It has given him lots of relief after his neck surgery on some very bad days. 




*Wintergreen and Birch should not be used if you are allergic to aspirin. *Caution: People with epilepsy should avoid Birch Essential Oil because it has high concentration of methyl salicylic. This oil should also be avoided by during pregnancy. Test a small sample on your skin before using this oil topically.


Spark Naturals now has BIRCH which is very hard to find. You can purchase the oils from Spark Naturals and make your own. Use the code JEDDY and get an additional 10% off or your order. If you don't want to make it you can purchase it pre-made HERE.





All Purpose Healing Stick

If someone got a bee sting, cut, bruise, scrape, burn or skin irritation I always have The Healing Stick whether we are at the park or at home. 

This All Purpose Healing Stick was created by Camp Wander. I can't tell you how many times I have used this! Camp Wander also has a great Healing Salve.


Cuts, Scrapes, Bites, Stings, Burns, Canker Sores or any small skin irritations. 


My daughter gets cancer sores in her mouth periodically and they are painful. The first one that appeared yesterday I applied a tiny amount of The Healing Stick and the pain was gone. I applied it once more in the evening. No pain all day and night. She had a burn on hand from the trampoline which I applied the Healing Stick to and it took the burn away. This stuff is awesome!
This is an All Purpose Healing Stick that is worth every penny to make and have on hand. You will not be disappointed!

Jeddy's Blend

A Natural Alternative for ADHD, ADD, Anxiety and more.

Saving the best for last because this one is my favorite. Jeddy is my son who has ADHD and this has been a huge blessing in our lives and many others who deal with ADHD, ADD, Anxiety, PTSD and Autism. I created this blend which has done so well for him that we have not had to medicate him. Please take the time to read the testimonials and share with those that you know who might be struggling so they know there is another option out there. 

I use Jeddy's Blend to keep the kids calm in the car, keep Jeddy focused at school and home, I use it for stress, anxiety attacks and my daughters Asperger's.

Testimonial from Jeddy's Teacher

I have had the privilege of working with the young man who is the
inspiration for Jeddy¹s blend for the past seven months.  I have observed
this young man closely in a 2nd grade classroom spanning across all subject
areas.  For the first six months or more this young man was very hard to
focus. He was easily distracted, he interrupted frequently, had a hard time
keeping his hands to himself, struggled to stay focused on his work and
struggled to focus during instruction times.  However the week before parent
teacher conferences I noticed a dramatic change in this individual. He was
focused, attentive, calm, respectful and the quality of work he submitted
was a vast improvement from the previous six months!  I was eager to find
out the reason for this transformation and was flabbergasted to discover
essential oils were the answer!  In my opinion the proof is in this young
man¹s remarkable change in the matter of a week after using Jeddy¹s blend.
Truthfully I wish I could share this with more hyperactive children who have
difficulty focusing attention to their task.  Thank you for giving this
young man a chance to demonstrate how successful he can be!  It¹s such a joy
to be able to interact with this young man and speak to him about how
intelligent, capable and amazing he is instead of focusing our conversations
on his disruptions.  - Jeddy's Second Grade Teacher 2013 Ms. Hough. 



Why I choose Spark Naturals Essential Oils 


I am a firm believer in Essential Oils and how we can use them to take care of our families. I have been using EO's for a while and before now I wasn't able to afford many of them. Spark Naturals has made it affordable to purchase PURE Essential Oils, they can do this because they are not a MLM Company and there are no down lines to pay so they can offer lower prices.  I can now purchase oils that I was unable to get before. Give them a try!
