A yummy, healthy homemade ranch dressing that we also love as a veggie dip.
3/4 CUP MAYO OR 6 OZ CREAM CHEESE
1/2 CUP BUTTERMILK
2 T PARSLEY
1 1/2 TSP. ONION (I USED FRESH ONION)
1 CLOVE GARLIC, MINCED
2 T PARMESAN, OPTIONAL
BLEND AND ENJOY.
I make most of our food from scratch and it's such a part of my life i rarely think of it. Unless i'm in the first trimester of pregnancy when cooking is an act of true love, not because i'm enjoying it. We had some friends from Ohio visiting and i noticed he was watching as i made salad dressing and i forget what else. I mentioned that we make everything from scratch around here and he dryly remarked, "i noticed." I forget how that's not "normal" in today's culture, although if the economy keeps heading south, we might all benefit learning to either make, or grow, all our food or do without. To become self sufficient is one of our goals but that's another whole post.
