Your significant other calls and tells you that friends are coming over for an impromptu game night.  There are dishes in the sink.  Toys are scattered all across the living room.  The toilet needs scrubbing, and there is nothing to serve your last-minute guests.  But wait!  You remember, you have a something in the cupboard that you can whip up.  It’s the Dips to Dinner, Oh Hey Vacay box from Tastefully Simple.

Tastefully Simple Dips to Dinner Box

This box of tasty mixes from Tastefully Simple comes with 5 single-use packets of fabulous seasonings:

  • Dill Pickle Dip Mix
  • Garden Salsa Cheese Ball Mix
  • Garlic Garlic Seasoning
  • Lemon Drop Cheese Ball Mix
  • Spinach and Herb Seasoning

Each envelope of seasonings comes with 2 recipes – 1 for a fabulously tasty dip or cheese ball that is easy to make and Tastefully Simple.  The second recipe is for an absolutely delicious dinner meal you can make using the packet of flavor.  You choose how you want to use the packet.  You can even make up your own recipe and create something completely unique!

We had company a couple of weeks ago where I had to make a full-on dinner, so I used 3 of the seasonings to make one complete meal.

Garlic Garlic on Pot Roast

I used the Garlic Garlic Seasoning packet to make a delicious Crockpot Roast.  I didn’t follow any given recipe.  To keep things simple, I put the roast, some shredded carrots, baby potatoes, green onions and the seasoning in the crockpot, and I had a delicious dinner to serve our guest with little effort.

Spinach and Herb Dip

As an appetizer, I made the Spinach and Herb Seasoning packet as directed.  I served it along side a variety of veggies and chips, and everyone loved it.

Lemon Drop Cheesecake Mix from Tastefully Simple

For dessert, I took advantage of the Lemon Drop Cheese Ball Mix packet and made the Cheesecake recipe that was included with the mix.  It was absolutely delicious!  Super easy, very yummy and not to tangy.
