"A creamy and delicious dip that is very easy to make and is always a hit! It is even better the second day, if it lasts that long! Serve with potato chips, crackers or fresh vegetables for dipping."
McCormick discontinued their “It’s a Dilly”, so here is how to make your own":
Ingredients for 12 servings:
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (or low/no fat* )
- 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream (or low/no fat*)
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1/2 (.7 ounce) package dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
- 1 (4.5 ounce) can shrimp, rinsed and drained
The only thing I did different was to add a couple of shakes of "It's a Dilly" seasoning, which is lemon and dill. “
- In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and sour cream and blend with an electric mixer on medium speed until blended.
- Add lemon juice and dressing mix; mix well. Add in shrimp and mix.
- Chill dip overnight and serve.

Dilly Seasoning Mix.
“Dill is the dominant flavor in this delicious and versatile seasoning mix. It can be used as a salad dressing, a vegetable dip, in pasta salads, or sprinkled on chicken or seafood.
1/2 cup dried dill weed (not seeds)
1/2 cup dried minced onion (not powder)
1/3 cup dried parsley
1/4 cup dried basil
1/4 cup dried tarragon
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried lemon peel
Combine the ingredients in a small bowl and blend until
they are evenly distributed. Store in an airtight container.”
I can’t imagine avocados, eggs or potato salad without Dill Seasoning.
10,000 Steps a Day? That is the suggested number of steps to take each day.
How can I do that? Here is how:
The swelling on my hand and wrist has receded to just a slightly swollen hand. I still can’t use it very well, but the antibiotics have it on the mend.
I usually use Live Writer which really helped today. The cable for the TV and internet is out, so I am going to have to plug in a phone line, or wait until the cable comes back on.
Sometimes, if I have a lot of pictures to post, I prefer the way New Blogger positions them, so I do that later. I can get them all loaded in blogger’s picture tray and then put them where I want them, with an edit.
Jay and I worked on the fence this morning. When the subdivision took down their fence, and left mine alone, they left a gap between mine and the fence next door. Anyone walking down to the store, (they mostly go there to get beer!), could take a short cut across my yard. I didn't want that, so we reset one more post.
It is lovely T-shirt weather, so it is great to be working outdoors.
Jay primed the boards and the post, with a painting pad, the quickest way, and they will be ready to paint later today.
