Event: The Greatest Show on Earth (& a great ticket offer!)

Because of his job - my husband and I don't get much time together - so I was really surprised when he asked to go to the circus with me! I haven't been to the circus in YEARS! 

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth is coming to town this weekend! It will be at US Bank Arena in downtown Cincinnati.

Tickets are available for shows Thursday thru Sunday and start at just $16! But we've got a great deal to share with you - it's the Family Deal where you get:


Plus if you go to the show 1 hour before - you can head down to center stage for the All-Access Pre-Show! You can get autographs from circus stars, try on costumes, learn acrobatic skills and even juggle with World Famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Clown Alley! I know I'll be down there so I can hopefully get a close up pic of the gorgeous animals! 

If you've got kids - or even if you're just a kid at heart - there is something for everyone at the circus - I hope to see you there!

Recipe: #DoUsAFlavor with the Lay's brand and my delicious Reuben Dip



My name is Heather and I'm addicted to Reubens. Literally if it's on the menu - I order it. I moved to Cincinnati, OH 10+ years ago and was giddy to find out there was a restaurant that specializes in Reubens! It's been my one of my favorite stops for years. Imagine the thought process when I saw that Lays was having their "Do Us A Flavor" contest again! Lays - Flavor - Reubens - BOOM! 

To make sure this flavor combo would work - I decided to whip up a Reuben Dip and try it out with my ever-present bag of Lay's Potato Chips! 

It's easy to whip up - take everything (but the bread) that goes into a reuben and mix it together! Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, pastrami, thousand island dressing + cream cheese = deliciousness! 



There you have it - I created my own personal flavor for Lays Reuben style chips! And doesn't it look great - it took me a total of 30 seconds too - how simple is that! What flavor will you create? Oh and did I mention there's a $1 million prize?! 

There are a couple of different ways to make this Reuben Dip - you can bake it in a dish or use your slow cooker. It's important to let the cream cheese get to room temperature and then dice it up - it makes it much easier to mix together with the other ingredients. 

The Lay's brand is also doing something cool this year with their contest - they want you to come up with a flavor that is inspired by your city! Now I know - the obvious for Cincinnati - is the Chili - and I considered it but I was hooked on Reubens in this city before I was addicted to the chili! :-)


I topped the dip with a bit of cheese before I put it in the oven and it was so delicious. It was tart with the thousand island and sauerkraut - but also meaty and cheesy. So good!
