  • 1 16-18 oz. round  loaf Italian or sourdough bread
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2 cup (about 5 slices) cooked, chopped thick-cut bacon
  • 1/4 cup jarred jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 10 (3/4 oz) slices of chopped cheese of your choice
  • 2 tsp. of chopped parsley, if desired
Preheat oven to 350. Place two (24-inch) pieces aluminum foil, crossing one over the other, on flat surface. Cut bread, using serrated knife, in grid pattern, spacing about 1-inch between rows. Do not cut through bottom crust. Set aside. Combine melted butter and ranch dressing in medium bowl. Add all remaining ingredients except parsley; mix well. Place loaf in center of aluminum foil pieces. Spoon cheese mixture into cut areas of bread. Wrap foil loosely around bread. Place onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 30 minutes. Pull back foil; continue baking 5-10 minutes or until loaf is golden brown and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired. Serve immediately. Pull out individual bread pieces, using tongs or 2 forks and reaching down into loaf to include filling and bread. Enjoy!
The Funny Bone

Once a captain on his ship was disturbed by his assistant telling him, “Sir! Sir! There are 5 enemy ships on the horizon.”The captain tells the man,” Get my red coat and prepare for battle!”

The assistant runs without question to get the captains red coat and prepares for battle. After their victory, the assistant asks the captain why he wanted his red coat.

The captain tells the assistant “If I was shot you would not be able to tell I’m bleeding and you would keep fighting.”

The assistant thought this was a great idea. The next day the assistant came to the captain, “Sir! Sir! There are twenty enemy ships on the horizon!”

The captain was stunned. He looked at the assistant and told him “Get me my brown pants!”

Delta Zeta Sorority at The University of Georgia

If anyone has spent any amount of time in the south, they know that sororities and fraternities play a big role across hundreds of college campuses. And, thanks in part to Hollywood, some of these institutions don’t always get the respect they deserve. It’s more than just a social gathering with your closest friends. Some of these groups are playing a huge role in social activism and community outreach. One such sorority is the Delta Zeta chapter at The University of Georgia. They are committed to service. In fact, their creed states, ‘To those whom my life may touch in slight measure, may I give graciously of what is mine.’ This year alone, they have already raised $7,300 from their annual Wing Bash to help various organizations, specifically those benefiting individuals who are hearing and speech impaired. Likewise, Delta Zeta has partnered up on a national level with The Painted Turtle Camp, which is located in California for kids suffering from chronic illnesses. This camp is run solely by Delta Zeta and each year, members of UGA’s chapter are fortunate enough to participate as mentors and counselors. Through these outreaches, it’s evident that UGA’s Delta Zeta sorority is doing something right within their community. In fact, their creed goes on to state, ‘To my friends, understanding and appreciation, to those closer ones, love that is ever steadfast.’ Perhaps if we shared this same thought with those we interact with on a daily basis, we too could be a spotlight in our own communities!
