Good Morning Marilyn. I don't have any dip recipes to share. These all sound so good though and one of my favorites was included in the post. Have a great dippy day and I hope your back is doing better. Blessings to you.

Good Morning Everyone,
Sorry I was so late getting on, but my computer was down this morning. I don't know what happened, but I couldn't get on the internet. Finally it came on.

I love Chris' recipe. That sounds delicious.

Glad you all like the list we have on. After this Anna found some more recipes last night. We will save them for next year. Maybe will have another dippy day next year.

The back is felling better today, but still has a way to go. Thank you all, so much for your prayers.

Marilyn: Keep seeing your chiropractor for relief.
One of our family's favorite is spinach dip, the one on the back of the Knorr vegetable soup packet. You can also use store brand soup mix. Carol in SC

Hi Carol,
Oh, I will keep going to her.
That sounds like a great recipe. I didn't know you could store brand soup mix. Thanks for telling me.

I know a simple and yummy dip for potato chips, but I don't remember exactly how it goes. I think 8oz of sour cream and a packet of french onion soup. You may have to experiment a little bit with the quantities. I've seen a few french onion dip recipes online where they use mayonnaise and ranch dressing as the base, but I'm pretty sure we use sour cream. Everyone in my family loves it.

I have a question that I would like to ask Elmer, if he'd be willing to answer. I read about his journey to the Lord, and of his being born again. I read that Elmer was worried that his new religious ways would harm his relationship with Anna. I was wondering if he could explain a little more about why his faith might cause a conflict.

Also--and this question is for anybody-- is it ok to send an Amish family a Christmas card?

Good Morning Stacy,
That French Recipe sounds delicious. I would think the sour cream would be better than mayonnaise.

I don't know the question you asked Elmer and I will see that he gets the question.

I do know that it is OK to send an Amish Family a Christmas Card. I send them to some Amish Friends.
