This sounds like so much fun I'm subbing in. Wish I could be there to meet you all but we leave WDW on September 29 to hot foot it over to DLR.

To us Aussies, PIO is our DIS national treasure. Like on your gaming threads, PIO insisted we meet in 3D. Since that auspicious first DISmeet a few months back, we've caught up on a regular basis. This evolving friendship is something I value more and more every time we meet. Really looking forward to reading all about your new and existing 3D friendships. May your week long DISmeet/s, be filled with wonderful moments and memories to cherish.

Oops! A belated Happy Birthday! Hope you had a fabulous day.

I am very much looking forward to this meet! I got home from WDW this past Tuesday AM..(2 AM!) with a URI, and I'm slowly recovering.

We are heading to FL this Tuesday for some celebrations with dS's family.

I'll be reading this PTR for sure!

It is cool that so many of you are getting together. I have not had a 3D meet with anyone still but am still hoping to some day.

Cannot wait to read about your trip. Seems like it will be a lot of fun. I love the cruise picture of you and Fran. Very few people dress to the nines like that, so the ones who do always stand out.
I'm glad to have you on board, that wasn't even formal night!

Yeah we will be just missing each other, too bad. I think we all worship PIO for her kindness, knowledge and just overall niceness.

I thought you were looking at the pictures in THIS TR! Just realize that Fran is the butch and I am the femme, as she puts it our plumbing is just rearranged. Otherwise we are like just about every other normal couple.

Yikes! After seeing me in that dress, I need to lose a few more pounds before I wear it again!

I'm not helping much (when you all see the next update).

So if you've read the first post you know one of the events we are planning during our stay is a potluck cookout on Saturday October 5th. We have a good deal of the menu nailed down, but I haven't posted it yet since we may have a few more additions and haven't quite figured out all the details.

One of the items that Fran and I plan on providing is a queso dip and chips. In the past we have always bought the jars of queso, but recently she mentioned that there were plenty of recipes online for easy queso dip that were much better than the jarred sauces.

So I figured that why not test out a queso recipe on Cinco de Mayo, the American holiday where gringos get extra drunk and pretend they have a link to Mexican Heritage! I searched online and found recipes as simple as a can of Rotel and Velveeta, to roasting peppers and deseeding them, sautéing vegetables, and all sorts of work. I wanted something inbetween and found something workable for us.

Here are my starting ingredients.



I modified the recipe I found online by substituting diced green chilies for the jalapeno peppers the recipe calls for. This is a half recipe.

8 oz Velveeta
6 oz cream cheese
2 tomatoes sliced
1/2 bunch green onions, green parts chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 can diced green chilies
Cracked black pepper

Melt the cheeses in the microwave. It took about 3 minutes at 60% power to fully melt the cheese.



Mix in the remaining ingredients. Here they are chopped.



And here they are about to be mixed in with the melted cheese.



After tasting the queso I realized that since we substituted mild green chilies for the jalapenos there was no kick to the dip. So I added 15 drops of tabsaco to the sauce and it was really tasty!



So we celebrated Cinco de Mayo in true gringo fashion, with a Margarita and queso and chips!



This recipe will work well for the DISmeet cookout. Now we have to figure out how to keep it warm on the table near the quiet pool at the picnic tables. I'm thinking sterno, but we need a dish....

Way to go on making your own!


We will still be bringing dessert(s). Still thinking brownies (no nuts) and Rice Krispie treats... But could change...

If we bring s'mores stuff could we roast the marshmallows on the grill? Anyone know? Or probably it's charcoal so no...
