80’s Poolside Bean Dip
Today, I am going to share a delicious recipe for 80’s Poolside Bean Dip. Back in the 1980’s, my sister Joan had an in-ground swimming pool in her backyard. Neither one of us worked summers, so we spent many hot summer afternoons swimming. Our kids learned how to swim in her pool during those summers spent swimming. Summers were filled with fun and relaxation. What a wonderful way to enjoy our summer vacations.
Dips and Peanut Butter Sandwiches
My sister made a delicious Caramel Apple Dip that kids and adults loved. She served the dip with green apple slices but caramel apple dip was good and just about anything. Including your finger! The dip was made with cream cheese, marshmallow fluff and butterscotch ice cream topping. Lunch consisted of sandwiches, potato chips and caramel apple dip. Why does everything taste better when your outside, sitting at a picnic table?!?
On the week-ends, my sister and her then hubby would have friends and family over for a pool party. The parties would be for adults only. Adult beverages would be served and what goes with bottles of ice cold beer? Bean Dip, of course! One night, Joan’s friend Audrey brought a slow cooker full of this bean dip. Talk about good! The bean dip was a huge hit and “In the 80’s, Poolside Bean Dip” was born.
