Let's Make A Dill (Dip)...and a GIVEAWAY!

This is Monte Howl coming to you from Let's Make A Dill (Dip.) Welcome to the show!

(APPLAUSE sign lights up)

First off, I need to know who has a hedge trimmer, golf bag, or a futon in their purse or pocket. Because if you do, you automatically win this week's prize, complements of Mags, that gal over 50. If not, you're going to need to leave a comment to enter into this giveaway. And that means ANY comment whatsoever for all you shy folks out there who hesitate to comment. Ms. Mags, that fun-loving babe who is off somewhere drinking fruity drinks with umbrellas and most likely practicing unprotected text, has generously handed her blog over to me and asked me to offer this $50.00 Amazon.com gift card to one lucky recipient. The winner will be randomly chosen at midnight on Sunday, August 8th and will be announced on Monday, August 9th's post. Good luck and don't forget to leave a way for Mags to contact you if you win! Due to Amazon.com's restrictions, this giveaway is only available to US residents. (Deepest apologies to all of you who follow Mags from outside the US.)

Let's Make A Dill (Dip)

1 cup reduced-fat mayo
1 cup fat free sour cream
1 TBSP dried minced onion
1 1/2 tsp Season Salt
1 TBSP dried dill weed
1 TBSP dried parsley

Combine all of the above ingredients and refrigerate overnight. Serve with an assortment of fresh cut vegetables.

Actually, I DO carry a hammer in my purse. I have for years. Only had to use it once though. Got it at the drug store. How crazy is that?!? BTW The dill dip sounds yummy.

"Monty.. Monty," an elderly but stunningly beautiful woman screams while waving her very large handbag.

"Come on up... and let's make a dill," he replies into his microphone, while drooling with lust at the stunningly beautiful elderly woman.

The elderly but stunningly beautiful woman advances to the stage with the grace of a goddess.

The camera man panes away from Monty who is still drooling, with a pool of spit now collecting at his feet. He now focuses the camera on the elderly but stunning beautiful woman as she advances across the stage. He becomes enthralled with the elderly but stunningly beautiful woman and her firm perky breasts. The camera zooms in for a closer look, causing the camera man to drool like a monkey in heat.

Monty beckons the elderly but stunningly beautiful woman to his side. Unbeknown to him, the river of spit has reached a frayed section in his microphone cord. And he is instantly fried. But he dies happy with the vision of the elderly but stunningly beautiful woman permanently etched on his corneas.

Smoke fills the stage, and hides the movements of the elderly but stunningly beautiful woman as she removes "crisp" Monty's wallet and snatches all his money. She then hurries over to all the prizes and drops them into her very large handbag.

Now she hurries out to the street in front of the building. An old car is waiting with an even older man sitting behind the wheel. He smiles as he see the elderly but stunningly beautiful woman. "Hurry up, Moogie. Let's get the hell out of here," he hollers through the open window of the car.

The elderly but stunningly beautiful woman glides into the front seat with all the loot inside of her very large handbag. She smiles at Pap and they disappear into a cloud of blue-oil-burning exhaust as they putter away.

Your dip's a dilly Monte and $50 from Amazon could buy somethin' plum useful...like maybe a hand mixer to replace the one the big guy destroyed 3 years ago! My arm's getting a tad tired of the whisk (you feeling sorry for me yet?)

You need to tell Moogie that the comments aren't supposed to be longer than the post! :) Love the idea of the dill dip. I'd even go far as to say it's a dilly.

Now that you mention it - I have a futon in the shape of a golf bag that was attacked by a hedge trimmer in my back pocket!!!! Oh wait, there's a hole in there - it must have fallen out! Darn it to heck! I guess I must eat some Dill Dip so I can feel better!

LMAO, I love it. Unprotected text! Now I could use a $50 Amazon card. Sure could. I could buy another one of those cookbooks (or 2!) to collect dust on my shelf. ;o)

VickieB said...

I used to carry quite a bit in my purse, but unfortunately not a hedge trimmer, golf bag, or a futon.

I've finally cut back to a waist pouch, a lot better on the back

How you can entertain us with your humor and recipes while being on vacation is beyond me! I guess you are multi-talented! If I win the amazon gift card, I think I will order the ebelskiver pan that you talked about in a previous post.

I absolutely adore this site and give many thanks for all the great recipes I have and will be using. For the record, the Dill Dip is awesome and will find it's way into many a picnic basket.
Thanks! (Now if only I had the extra funds for that nice saute pan I've been looking at)
