These days our holidays and get togethers look a bit different. What used to be large gatherings with family, extended family and friends has turned into smaller more intimate gatherings. Just because they are smaller doesn’t mean they take less time to plan and host.

If you’ve followed me on Instagram, you know I have used a “hospitality notebook” where I document each party or holiday listing tons of info from recipes I used, how I displayed or served the food, shopping lists and cooking schedules for the day or even week as I prepped. It has made planning parties and holidays so much easier and stress free as all I have to do is look back at the past party or holiday and just duplicate it all.

I’ve been showing Megan how to plan and keep her own hospitality book and with baby Mia’s christening coming up and Labor day weekend, she is starting to put her new book to good use.

Filling the notebook with your favorite recipes is a great place to start. So, while she was planning out some ideas, we decided to test an appetizer, a yummy Taco Dip. And, when you already have a good portion of the ingredients on hand, like Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise, it makes it even better.

If you don’t have the ingredients, make it easy on yourself and use 2-day delivery/ship to home which you can easily do through the BJ’s app. Or use Instacart for same-day delivery from BJ’s.

If you are looking for an appetizer for your Labor Day cookout, I highly recommend this Taco Dip. We layered it with nachos, cheese, lettuce, green pepper, green onions and sliced olives. Let me tell you, we cleaned the plate. So so good. And, so so easy.

It’s so easy that you might as well send it to everyone you know! Hey – If you can’t get together with everyone you want to, why not make the same recipes! Maybe even over video chat – Super Fun way to connect in 2020!
