Canada Day!!...A video...Warm Reuban Dip Recipe - Dry Shower - Rained Out Picnic

Check out my video with Abby and my baby talking at the end... Don't laugh..

Today is Canada's 142nd Birthday. Happy Birthday Canada. Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian blogging friends. We're going to have a picnic with friends here at the cottage as you know across the Lake Ontario from Canada in New York State.

On the weekend Marc and his SIL started installing a new shower stall. They worked all day and we weren't ready for a shower at the end of the day when he had to go home. I had worked in the garden and planting the wheelbarrow. At about 9:30 p.m. we packed our towels and change of clothes and headed down the beach road to our friend's shower.

The next day the work continued and it was rainy again. We all had picnics to go to and the shower wasn't progressing very well by the late afternoon. Eventually we were all late for our parties but the shower was useable.

Our picnic was an Elk's Past Exalted Ruler picnic. It was raining which put a damper on the picnic, no pun intended. I made a Reuban dip and we served it with rye cocktail bread and crackers. We don't back that back in "my" country as Marc and I say about Canada and the USA. It was yum. In case you haven't made it, here is the recipe:

Warm Reuban Dip

In a 1 1/2 qt. casserole, mix together the following ingredients:
8 oz Cream cheese
2 tbsp Mayonnaise
1 tbsp Russian dressing
dash of Garlic powder
2 tbsp Sour cream

Mix in:
8 oz can Sauerkraut, drained
6 oz Corned beef, snipped into small pieces
4 oz Cheddar cheese, grated
4 oz Swiss cheese, chopped

Bake at 325° for 20-25 minutes. Serve with rye bread slices quartered or cocktail rye slices. It was a hit and we have copies of the recipe we have to email out.

The following is the Abby Video....
I've recently discovered how to video with my digital. Its been pretty bad and I haven't wanted to share them with you. Today I'm doing it though...for all its worth. Don't laugh. *lol*.

Have a lovely day... Judi xoxo

Oh, my mom would've loved that dip as Reuben was her favorite sandwich.

It rained all day here: gloomy, gloomy day.

Happy Canada Day to you!

Happy Canada Day, my friend. I've missed you on Pink Saturdays.

Your dip looks delish - and I know I would like it because I love Reubans.

I need to practice taking videos with my digital.

Hi Judi--Abby just makes me laugh! My cat Oliver cannot stand to be photographed and no matter what cute thing he's doing, he will stop and look away or come right up to the camera and try to put his face in the lens.

I love your lake view from the cottage. I agree, cloudy day or not, it's nice to be away and always lovely on the water.

Happy Canada Day to you!

Hi Judi! Oh, it's wonderful to hear your beautiful voice! Love the video and that little Abby being so stubborn. She's acting just like Chloe Dawn! Have they been talking?

Happy belated Canada Day! My husband and I were married on Canada day and went to Nova Scotia for our honeymoon!

I love your video!!! You have such a nice speaking voice. You could do well making audio tapes (or is it CD's now) of children's stories.

take care,
