Mom’s Ice Chest Challenge


I’m participating in a mom’s ice chest challenge for four tickets to Schlitterbahn. Right in time for my eldest’ and her son’s visit! I love visiting Schlitterbahn … how about you? Are you ready for their new ride?!


Here is my favorite recipe to add to the ice chest when visiting a water park, camping, or other family event …

  • 1/2 head of garlic
  • 1/2 head of garlic
  • 1-2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2-3 oz sundried tomatoes in olive oil (don’t drain)
  • 2 rounded Tablespoons of tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • 1/4 tsp fresh cracked black pepper*
  • 15 oz. can garbanzo beans (drained, but reserve 1/2 of the liquid and add back in to the desired consistency)

*Ground pepper just won’t do – get yourself a pepper mill and fill it full of peppercorns

Add ingredients one at a time into food processor and blend until smooth – flavors will intensify after being refrigerated.

Did you know that Schlitterbahn allows you to bring in your own ice chest? And has FREE parking?!

I haven’t been in two years, so I’m dying to go and enjoy a whole day in the park, with the huge lazy river, amazing rides and plenty of fun in the water and sun!

Grab a bag of pita chips from Aldi’s and go for it!
