Oniony Dip

I played with my food again yesterday.

I think that is one of the fun parts of growing up, I can make my own version of 'mud pies' and hopefully make them edible in the process.

I love a french onion dip, something about it makes my mouth smile.
But I didn't have any french onion soup mix, well, I never have french onion soup mix in the house.  I don't think I've bought any in probably twenty years.  Just something I don't buy.

The mix I came up with was really tasty and easy to do.

4 oz. Cream Cheese, room temp
1/2 cup Sour Cream
2 tablespoons dried Minced Onions
1/2 teaspoon dried Tarragon
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
2 teaspoons McCormicks Au Jus gravy mix  (one of the few mixes I keep on hand)
4 green onions, sliced
1 teaspoon Ranch Dressing mix (just happened to have some that I used on a Mississippi Pot Roast)

Mix all the ingredients together and place in the fridge for an hour or two or three.
  This allows all the flavours to get acquainted and mellow out and generally just mingle.

Serve with Chips or Crackers or even as a spread with a slice of rare roast beef on a sandwich.   I took some with me to NPA last night and got the thumbs on on this. 
I've also got some ginger root going.   I'm so excited.  And yes I know it's past time to get these roots into a pot so they can finish making magic.
I plan on enjoying the plants all winter long and harvesting the corms in the spring.
