The Young Tortilla-Based Hostess

When I was scrounging about college in sweatpants, I saw a picture of Jacqueline Kennedy lighting a candle at the dinner table. The caption read, "The young hostess prepares to entertain her guests." And I thought, "Isn't that a lovely bit of life! She has guests!"

Now I have guests, too, and they eat Skyline chili dip and little squares of cheese. Just like Jackie's!

And cupcakes featuring bored-looking plastic horses. Also just like Jackie!

Hey, if there are nachos and salsa, it's bound to be a success!

Well, some tequila wouldn't hurt either, :-)

Obviously, if Skyline Dip is on offer, your guests will leave your home happy and awed by your culinary expertise and elegance. I love that stuff.

Watch out for that little light-brown pony in the center--he's gobbling up all the frosting!

Did you also serve horse steaks to compliment your theme? Just kidding! Sorry, awful joke...

My husband is from Cincinatti, and I, to have learned to appreciate the power of an artfully presented bowl of Skyline Chili dip!
