Old Market District- Thumbs Up

I'm a little behind with this blog, but I thought it was still necessary to share. A few weeks back, Joe and I visited Jake in Omaha, while he was working out there. Before spending a few days out there, I had a few thoughts about the town of Omaha. One of the biggest ones is that I thought it was all pretty ghetto. Well, I was proven wrong after staying in the Old Market District (http://www.oldmarket.com). I had never been in that area of town before and I was really impressed. I loved all of the neat old buildings. There was also a ton of fun restaurants down there.

There was also some cool shops down there; however, most weren't "stroller friendly" (notice the cement steps). So, I had to window shop:)

Below is a picture of what Jake was doing down there. They had Product Intro where they lauch all of their new products for the new year. This was an opening night dry run- a lot of smoke a lights. It actually made me excited for tractors. Who knew?!

I also tried this new recipe the other day that was a hit with Jake. It's a pizza dip and super easy!
Jake is hosting his brother's bachelor party on Saturday and the guys are coming over to our house to eat. So, this is on the menu.

Ingredients
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, grated
  • 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded/grated
  • 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • 2 ounces pepperoni, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons green pepper, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons black olives, sliced
Directions
  1. Mix the cream cheese, sour cream mayonnaise, mozzarella and parmigiano reggiano and spread it across the bottom of a pie plate.
  2. Spread the pizza sauce on top and sprinkle on the cheese, pepperoni, green pepper and olives.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until the sides are bubbling and the cheese cheese has melted and turned golden brown on top, about 20 minutes.
