Shrimp Dip

No dinner tonight at the Knightly house, I'm going to a girl's night at my friend Gina's house. Everyone's supposed to bring a bottle of wine and an appetizer. I've gone back and forth with what appetizer to take, but I think I've finally decided on my grandma's shrimp dip. It's so good. When I was single, I used to make it some nights for dinner.

Shrimp Dip
1 can Cream of Shrimp soup
1 block cream cheese
1/3 cup chopped green onions

Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe dish. Microwave for a couple minutes, stir. Continue to microwave if not heated through. Serve with potato chips.


Honestly I'm not sure how long to microwave it for. I put it in for a couple minutes, stir, do a couple more minutes, stir. Just until it's hot. And I like to eat it with Wavy Lays. Sometimes it can be hard to find Cream of Shrimp soup, but I have always found it at Walmart. Normally it's on the top shelf of the Campbell's soups, with all the other ones that people hardly ever buy. My friend Brooke has made this before and added in extra shrimpies. I think I may do that tonight. Oh man, I'm so excited to have this dip. I kind of hope no one eats it so I can bring it all home and gorge on it alone! :)

Have a good weekend, all! The husband and I are having a date night at a swanky Scottsdale resort tomorrow night, so no dinner cooking for me! And I think Sunday we're having dinner at my grandma's, so I'll see you guys next week!

Sounds yummy! I am so jealous you get to have wine tonight. Have fun tomorrow night. Let me know how it goes. My anniversary is in two weeks. Maybe we will have to check it out.

I love that dip! I keep a can of Cream of Shrimp on hand just in case I have to bring something somewhere at the last minute.

I don't think I've ever seen cream of shrimp soup - I'll look for it next time. Sounds like a yummy dip.
