Food is Love: Peggy's Dill Dip

This is the perfect dill dip recipe -- easy and yummy and it was given to me with love by my friend and sister-in-law, Peggy Harness. She's the one with her head back, laughing. Peggy died last week, unexpectedly, of complications from surgery.

Food is Love, folks. Whether it's a casserole you bring to a house in mourning, or a recipe you leave behind. Here's to Peggy! She'd be tickled to know you're enjoying the dill dip.

Peggy's Dill Dip
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayo
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
1 tablespoon onion flakes
1 tablespoon dill weed
1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt

Mix it all up. Hollow out 1 Swedish rye -- you know, the big round loaf. Save the bread you're pulling out of the center; that's what you use for dipping. Put the dip into the hollowed-out center and start munching. When you're done with the official dippers, rip up the bread bowl and use it. Mmmmmm. Seriously good stuff.

What a great picture and loving tribute to Peggy. I'm going to miss seeing her good-natured zings she would add to your Facebook posts. You & Tom will be in my thoughts all weekend.

And on another note-is that a younger,long haired Jan Harness in that picture?

Yep, that would be a younger Jan Harness in the middle. And a much younger Kate Harness on Peggy's lap. And Peggy's daughter Amanda on the end. A happy group of goofy girls...
