Onion Dip

In our younger days, several years after Ben was born. That's our Dee on the left.

If you have been reading this blog for any time, you know that it is a mother and son collaboration. In order to agree on the recipes presented here as family history, there is a lot of correspondence back and forth about food memories. Some of Ben's questions really make me laugh, such as this one:

Do I crave onion dip because you ate it when I was in the womb or is there something to it beyond a mix packet?

If we went by what I ate while carrying the pre-born Benjamin, he would be eating a lot of herrings in sour cream right from the jar (imagine!) and throwing up instantly at the smell of spiced tea. Sorry to talk about throwing up right in the middle of the recipes.

The Onion Dip that Ben is so fond of is the same one that everyone else makes, and comes right from the box of Lipton's Onion Soup Mix (or right from Lipton's website):

1 envelope Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix
1 container (16 oz.) sour cream

1.In medium bowl, blend all ingredients; chill if desired.
2.Serve with your favorite dippers.

I like to throw in a drained can of minced clams. One of my favorite dinners - a bowl of clam dip, a bag of tater chips and some ice cold root beer. Nostalgic and deeply satisfying. (It reminds me of our childhood Christmas Eves.)
