Today's Appetizer. Chip Dip.

 Rosie has a guest this afternoon,
so she made a quick chip dip.
 Equal amounts Velveeta and cream cheese.
 Rosie uses Velveeta.

I was out of cream cheese,
but I did have Brie, so I subbed.

Wouldn't you know Rosie would have Brie
 but not cream cheese.

That reminds me of the time waaaaay back in the 80s
when Mr. Hawthorne and a bunch of us
were going camping at Buggs Island.
We'd given directions to our friends to the campsite
and I asked them if they had any problems with the directions.
One dryly responded with,
"When we saw the Bon Appetit and Gourmet magazines
on the picnic table, we knew we'd found you, Rosie."

 Nuke the cheese until melted.
If you want to thin it out a bit,
stir in a little milk.

I added in a minced jalapeno and ...
... some of Mr. Hawthorne's Salsa Ranchera.
You could substitute
a small can of Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies
or your own salsa.
 Serve with chips on a festive towel.

I forgot the cilantro.
