Have you ever been so close to your dream coming true that you could taste it? Well, that was me yesterday. This website has grown enough that I am ready to take one foot off the corporate treadmill and transition to a part time position! There is nothing I want to do more than to stop punching a clock and live life on my own terms. Words can't adequately describe how excited I am to see that day coming! However, that day was not yesterday.
I applied for a part time position at work, and I was thrilled to get the job offer, but we ended a mere $.50 an hour apart on pay. Crap.
I was still very tempted to take the position, but since I was already agreeing to take a sizable pay cut, in the end I couldn't justify selling myself short of what I know I am worth in the same position elsewhere. It would be hard to stay satisfied when you are being knowingly underpaid, right?
So, I'll be keeping my focus on growing FoxValleyFoodie.com, where my income is only limited by my creativity. That, of course, means writing up tantalizing recipes for you all, like this Blue Cheese and Bacon Guacamole Dip! It is a salty and crunchy twist on the classic guacamole recipe!
Blue Cheese and Bacon Guacamole Dip is a quick and easy appetizer to prepare when you are craving something out of the ordinary. It boasts all of the classic guacamole flavors, plus the briny taste of blue cheese, while the smoky crunch of crisp bacon is infused throughout!
To make this recipe you will want to have a lime juicer on hand. It is certainly possible to just squeeze the juice out of the limes by hand, but I find a good lime press will give you a better yield and leave you with cleaner hands.
