Late May/early June is a pretty busy time around here, with several family birthdays, including my own kids’.
We’d prepped carefully for Ben’s birthday party, planning out all kinds of activities plus, of course, a lot of healthy snacks. And cupcakes. The boys worked hard to decorate them in a madness of sugar (it was a birthday party, people).
My mother made a beautiful pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey game.
Just as the party was about to get going, a delivery truck dropped off a package: Late July chips! As a Stonyfield blogger, I was to create a yogurt-based dip to go with them. (I mean, I didn’t have to do it right then, but the timing was perfect!)
No problem. I always have a big tub of Stonyfield yogurt in the fridge (plain, whole milk). I put some into a bowl and began to mix in grated Parmesan cheese, sea salt, garlic powder, dried parsley. Onion granules, green goddess dressing base. Mix and taste, mix and taste.
More Parmesan, a little more salt. It was pretty good.
I set them out on the table next to the veggies and hummus and the fruit platter and began to help set up the seltzer can bowling (hint: weight the cans with a little water if it’s a breezy day).
While the dip could have used just a little more oomph, it disappeared fast. So did the chips. In fact, when I first opened the package of chips, all I heard was, “Oh, I love Late July chips!” Seriously, the chips kind of stole the party.
I didn’t measure anything when I made my dip. For a more surefire dip, try one of the great recipes at Stonyfield: http://stonyfield.com/
