Holidays or Football...or Both!

The biggest party season of the year is quickly approaching. You and I both know our calendars are getting full of holiday parties, rather they be Christmas or New Years, or even college football championships. (In case you don't know my Notre Dame Fighting Irish will be playing in the BCS Championship Game Monday January 7, 2013!!) We all have so many family and friend gatherings this year, coming up with new dishes to take is sometimes a daunting task. Especially if you are like me and have guest "overlap". By that I mean many of the same people are going to be at multiple parties, and you don't want them thinking you are only capable of bringing one thing because they have seen it 3 times in the course of two weeks. So, maybe this absolutely delicious dip could be one of your new offerings!

I first had this 3 years ago when we were celebrating Thanksgiving with my Grammy, and thankfully she remembered how much I loved it this year when we were there too. When she got out the container, I got this huge smile on my face for I just knew by the sight exactly what it was. It's perfect with crackers, veggies or even chips. Honestly, I'm such an addict I can eat the stuff with a spoon!! The slight crunch with the creamy texture will have your guests saying "Hmmm...what is that." And they might just be surprised when they find out the answer!

If you are trying to get your holiday party menus planned, and appetizers are on the top of those lists, be sure to try this dip this year!

Spinach Dip
10 oz. box frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well
16 oz. sour cream
1/2 c. mayo
1 pkg. Knorr Vegetable Soup/Dip Mix, dry NOT mixed
8 oz. water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped

In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Mix well. Chill several hours before serving with crackers, chips, or veggies.
