Southern Style Seven Layer Dip / #CookOutWeek2017

When we lived in the southwest, a friend of mine brought a 7 Layer Dip over to the house for a party. I was in love with this yummy layered concoction and all it's southwestern flavors like avocado, refried beans and salsa! Talk about good~Yum! Every layer tasted great by itself, but incredibly great all together.
A few years ago, we moved to North Carolina, and for a while now, I having been thinking about recreating "the best dip in the world" with a Southern Style version. So here it is! I used baked beans instead of refried, BBQ instead of salsa, and cheddar instead of 4 Cheese. You are going to love it!

Grilled Steak Sandwiches w/Foil Pack Veggies/ #Smokin'-O's / #CookoutWeek2017

You are going to love these Grilled Steak Sandwiches w/ Foil Pack Veggies for your next cookout! The tenderized London Broil steak, always my favorite, is juicy and full of flavor with an incredible smokiness from the Applewood Smokin'-O smoke rings. The vegetables are cooked separately in their own foil pack. If you haven't tried this way of grilling vegetables before, you will be amazed at how easy it is and how tender and tasty your veggies are. Plus, if you know what everyone likes, you can easily design the foil packs so everyone gets their favorite veggies!
This is my second entry in this weeks fun adventure, #CookoutWeek2017! Yesterday I posted yummy Chocolate Caramel S'mores Bars that you will want to try. They are a tasty accompaniment to these Grilled Steak Sandwiches, and there is no better way to start #CookoutWeek2017 than with a dessert!

Chocolate Caramel S'mores Bars / #CookoutWeek2017

I love a cookout that ends with S'mores, don't you? It is such fun to sit around the campfire chatting, singing and trading stories, all the while, toasting marshmallows as we have a good time. But sometimes, the weather doesn't always cooperate, and these Chocolate Caramel S'mores Bars are a great way to get your S'mores campfire fix without the campfire! 
These are easy to make, but they do take some planning and time. If you start the day before you want to serve them, you will be fine. I put each S'more on a graham cracker to serve them. it gives a little neater appearance, and more graham cracker flavor. If you love S'mores, you will love these!
