Family game night at our house doesn’t just consist of boardgames. My son got a Wii U for Christmas, and we love to play as a family. It’s fun to cheer each other on and defeat the bad guys. Currently our favorite game is Disney Infinity: MARVEL Super Heroes and MARVEL’s The Avengers Playset. Our love for The Avengers started way before we purchased this game. The first non-cartoon movie that my son watched was The Avengers. He loves Captain America, and even has a stuffed bear version. Gabe likes to play as Captain America, Jeremy is particularly fond of Hulk, and I often play as Black Widow, but I also like Thor. Our family game night isn’t complete without a great snack, and this week I made a Rosemary Bacon Cream Cheese Dip. It pairs perfectly with MARVEL’S The Avengers: Age of Ultron branded Cheez-Its, vegetables, chips, pretzels, and you can even dip a chicken nugget in it (just ask my son).
This dip is loaded with delicious goodness, and I like that it pairs well with lots of different snacks. We love bacon in our household, and just about anything containing bacon gets devoured in short order. I love the fragrance of the rosemary, combined with the bite of garlic, and the saltiness of the bacon. It will take longer for your cream cheese to soften than it actually takes to whip up this treat.
- 1 block of cream cheese, softened
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 3 tablespoons finely diced fresh rosemary
- ¼ cup chopped bacon or real bacon bits
- 1 tablespoon finely diced garlic
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- Slowly add sour cream to cream cheese, mixing in a tablespoon at a time until well incorporated
- Mix in lemon juice
- Add remaining ingredients and mix well
- *If you try to add the sour cream all at once, you could make your mixture lumpy
- Refrigerate until serving
- Stores well in an airtight container
We’re excited to take Gabe to see the latest installment of The Avengers. MARVEL’S The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be in theaters this weekend. A few of my blogging friends have had the pleasure of seeing the film, and I’ve heard nothing but amazing reviews. We’ve even added a few new action figures to our Toy Box, but we haven’t acquired the entire MARVEL’s The Avengers Playset yet.
Even grandma has to join in playing during family game night.
