      Another really yummy one is to mix (drained) chopped green olives with cream cheese and serve with ritz crackers. Yum!

      One of my favorites is making pretzel salad and placing it in small cups with spoons for a different item.

      We make bacon dip, mix 1 pkg of cream cheese, 1 cup of sour cream, 1 pkg bacon bits (the real ones!) and 1 scallion finely chopped. Top with diced tomatoes (seeds removed first so they aren’t runny) serve with ritz crackers.
