You are only a few ingredients away from cheesy-pastry goodness! These bacon ranch puffs are perfect as a game-day appetizer or after-school snack. They are super easy.
Today I brought Truman in to the doctor for his immunizations. It was just one shot, and he cried of course, for a few seconds. Then they gave him a lollipop and he was fine.
But as we’re walking out a minute later, he walked straight into the wall and hit his head on the doorframe. Kid was bawling for like 3 minutes, and suddenly I’m (yet again) THAT parent who is laughing while their kid is crying.
Don’t worry, I really do love my kids, but seeing a tiny human walk into a wall while pathetically sucking on a lollipop IS kind of funny.
It reminds me of the time that Charlotte fell into the washing machine. No joke. (I think that is one of my favorite posts on my blog. It perfectly describes my life as a mother, and it makes me laugh every time.)
I have a whole theory about laughing vs. crying as a coping tactic for moms. See this post wherein Charlotte falls off a stool, or the one where I accidentally squirted water in her face and she cried. Laughing beats crying almost every time for me, which probably makes the nurses at the doctor’s office think I’m a total maniac. I’m sure I’m on their list.
Who’s ready for football?? *Cue laughter* I am not one of those people who understands football, so the phenomenon does very little for me, but one thing I do understand is food, and game-day food has it’s own special place in my heart. Especially when there is cheesy bacon ranch involved. These little puffs include everything you need in a perfect appetizer: fast, easy, cheesy, carb-y, bacon-y, and delicious served both warm and room temperature. Win!
