Um, so it’s July. It really snuck up on me – this year has been flying by! I feel like we should still be in April. Of course, since I haven’t been paying attention to the calendar, I’m completely unprepared for the Fourth. (You would think all of the red, white, and blue in stores would have tipped me off. Nope, I’m oblivious.) I didn’t make any plans. I didn’t think about taking any extra days off from work. It’s tomorrow, and I still have no idea what I’m going to do!
I do know one thing though: there will be dip.
French onion dip has been a favorite of mine ever since I was a little kid, and once I got the idea to make a from-scratch version I just couldn’t get it out of my head! I finally got around to making it this weekend, and am definitely making it again for tomorrow. This dip is great! It’s a little sweeter than my favorite Lipton soup packet dip, but its also less salty and more onion-y. I served it with fresh vegetables and reduced fat kettle chips for dipping.
