Bacon Cheeseburger Queso Dip


Every year, we gather around the TV in honor of some sweaty dudes playing with a ball. A day where my husband guzzles beer by the truck load. I normally check Instagram a million times to see what everyone is eating, paint my finger nails, and try to talk my husband into some expensive designer handbag for Valentine's Day. Just to help my cause a little more, I may whip up some kind of appetizer. This is the one that is going to win me a new Tory Burch. Happy Footballing or in my case, shopping! #noshame
