Caramelized Onion Greek Yogurt Dip.
I mean… absolutely had A THING.
And back I say dip, I beggarly the mayo or acerb chrism based dips that appear in tupperware containers (always adored reused…) in the dairy alley at the grocery store. Assurance me, appropriate about now she is apparently rolling over in her grave with all this hummus allocution activity on in the world. Don’t alike get me started on guacamole.
At any accustomed time she’d accept four or bristles varieties in her fridge. Yeah baby… four of five. Accepted two of them were usually expired, and while she claimed “oh they’re fine!” added generally than not yet addition alembic was opened by a grandchild or visitor.
I was never a huge fan of buttery dips as a kid (mainly because they included vegetables. yes i’m serious.), but that’s not adage I consistently anesthetized up a nice dive into a basin of french onion or bacon horseradish. I usually succumbed to the pressure, because that’s what you did at grandma and grandpa’s house: ate all of their Pringles, pretzel twists and Fritos with huge globs of dip.
[Meanwhile, I additionally alternate in an acutely awe-inspiring attraction during the summer of 1992 consisting of a actor pretzel sticks biconcave in chive chrism cheese while watching Accomplishment 911 episodes with my accessory Lacy. But whatever. Being happens.]
The added admirable affection Mother Lovett adopted in her old age (besides affecting every distinct cookie on the bowl afore allotment the one she accounted worthy) was that of bifold dipping. She was the affliction bifold dipper EVER. In accessible too. It was absolutely horrifying. Alright, I accept to stop talking about it. I’m cringing.
She’s been on my apperception a lot lately; in actuality I’m appealing abiding she is sending my academician aliment cravings from the grave. I’ve been bound into my own dent phase, and well… you can brainstorm how that is axis out. So in adjustment to feel a little bigger about my clutter consumption, I caramelized onions for a acceptable 40 account or so again aerated them into a big alembic of Greek yogurt with a few added flavors. Not identical to her old favorites, but seriously, actively did the trick. I’m anticipate you could alike dip some vegetables in here, but again I’m not abiding if we could be accompany anymore.
So, whatever… that’s up to you.
