NMG-Late to the Party-Nachos Recipe!

Yikes - I'm late to Monica's NMG Potluck and Slumber Party. And I know you're all dying for the crockpot nachos recipe, so forgive my tardiness, but I'm sure you won't mind once you get the recipe! For those of you who don't know what NMG stands for, it's Non Market Going Society - you know, those of us who are stuck at home while the other fortunate souls get to go to Quilt Market. But thanks to the ingenuity of PamKittyMorning and at Monica's suggestion of using Mr. Linky, we all can keep up to date with market posts and slumber party happenings here!

But where is the recipe, you ask? It isn't any harder than taking a pound of Mexican Style Velveeta cheese, a can of Nalley's (or other brand) Chili Without Beans and a bunch of chopped green onions - dump it all in the crockpot, melt well and serve warm with tortilla chips! I always double it - more if you have a big crowd. When you can't figure out where everyone went, just look to wherever the crockpot is!

You might also wonder why I was late to the party. We're still at the Squash House through tomorrow. After another hard days work yesterday painting the kitchen cupboards, we decided to have some fun today. We drove about an hour and a half east of town to the Wooten Wildlife Area along the Tucannon River. We heard there was a lot of good area for fly fishing - were they ever right! We can't wait for fishing season next year.

There are also several lakes along the river that are made by damming the Tucannon in spots. We stopped at the first Lake and saw wild turkeys, otters eating fish in the middle of the lake, and several other kinds of wildlife. The lake below is Rainbow Lake, which is next to the fish hatchery. Trails run all around these small lakes, so you can fish from nearly anywhere on the lakes!

When we got back to the Squash House, we were greeted by this hawk or falcon on the fence out back! I got as close as I could -about 5 feet before he flew away!
This might be my last post for a few days. We leave Sunday to go home, but tomorrow we have a pretty busy day scheduled. I find I work so hard I don't realize the day is nearly done, then I'm ready for bed! Good work, though, happy work even!!

That's what I always used to bring to parties. I love it because it's so easy to make and it tastes great.

I wish we really were having a slumber party at Monica's. You might be the first one to fall asleep! You've been so busy!!

Thanks for the recipe, Candace. Sam loves nachos. Maybe I'll surprise him tonight!

The picture of the lake looks like a postcard. No wonder you're so anxious to move. God's country to be sure!

Oh my, Candace, that hawk is awesome. He looks like he is guarding the fence.

Beautiful photo!

I love nachos! We make a tomato salsa base layer in the pan the nachos on top then crate cheddar cheese over, put in a hot oven until the cheese melts then serve with sour cream and salad.

It's great that you are getting so much done. I'm sure it will all be perfect for Christmas.

I am going to check out those links but I am sure I am late.
Such a pretty lake. Have they cut down the trees or are they dying from disease?
So cool that you got a picture of the hawk. Great bird.
