DKNY Cozy Hot Creamy Sausage Dip Week

Like us, are you feeling a little over sugared and under proteined lately?  Holy MMMoley!!  We went to a Santa brunch yesterday because Bulldog insisted and we had to be taken out on a stretcher after making a three course meal out of dozens of cinnamon rolls . . .

Paris Under the Waters: A Rescue (1910) by postaletrice.

Cozy Bashers:  We received some push back from NellieJoyce on the DKNY cozy style with the gentle knot which ties at the back.  We do wish to point out that those suffering from back pain can benefit from the lumbar support that the gentle knot provides.  Ask your chiropractor and she’ll tell you that the cozy can really help you.  Plus, that rear gentle knot actually makes you sit up straighter with ta-ta’s out.  On the other hand, Olivia is convinced that the cozy is nothing more than an updated toga.  Why buy a cozy, she demands, when you can use your old duct taped bed sheets to make a fashion statement?  The creativity of Joyceland ladies never ceases to amaze and delight! 

And how ’bout this?  When you’re from the East Coast you call a take-away party a Yankee swap!  Those East Coasters make everything sound super fancy and all Kennedy, don’t they?  Okay, we can play their game:  we attended another ‘Yankee swap’ the other night.  The flavor of this one was the infamous white elephant.  Some of the big laugh gifts included butt floss, wash away your sins soap, a Princess Diana ornament, a big bag of hair, two-sided soap: one side for your face and one side for your ass, a monkey key chain that when squeezed sticks out his pee-pee, and a naughty/nice bag filled with a black lacey thong and an extra large pink pair of Granny’s underpants.  File those ideas away in your brain for future party fun!  Here was the new twist at this Yankee swap:  once the last gift had been opened, a lightning round began.  You set a timer and then start passing around a box with a pair o’ dice inside . . .

. . . as the box gets quickly passed around the room, anyone who rolls doubles earns an additional STEAL.  Yay for the lightning round.  We love extra stealing because it adds a ‘illegal with no accountability factor.’  Remember your math, Joycies:  stealing + frantic ladies = a good time.   The lightning round will add a hyper and fun element to your party especially when you include wine and loud music!

We gorged on a fabulous appetizer at the white elephant Yankee swap.  Do you ever go to parties and then hide next to the hors d’oeuvre table and just stand there like a total pig?  It provides a nice ‘party break’ because you don’t have to make any conversation while your mouth is stuffed with food.  Try it next time and see if you like it.  Anyway, the fabulously smart, sassy, and sexy LisaJoyce made this unbelievable Joycetizer called Hot Creamy Sausage Dip.  Does the title just make you want to lick your chops?  Joyce has declared this week Hot Creamy Sausage Dip Week!  Here’s how you celebrate this week-long holiday within a holiday:  eat a little or a lot of the dip EVERY DAY THIS WEEK.  Your protein intake will skyrocket, the pounds will melt away, and you’ll feel very euphoric and popular.  Here is LisaJoyce’s super secret recipe:       

Hot Creamy Sausage Dip
1# hot Italian sausage
1C sour cream
5 green onions, chopped
1/2C mayo
1/4C parmesan cheese

(P.S.  While shopping for the ingredients, don’t forget to invite everyone you see at the grocery store to join us for Hot Creamy Sausage Dip Week!  You can’t believe all the new friends you’re going to make . . . )
