Now it's a hang out for them squirrels, they just sit there munching away at whatever they are trying to stuff their cheeks with.
At Christmas time this poor lil' angel sits all by himself in the cold and sometimes snow/covered, so I put a Santa hat on him so he will also be in the spirit.

I love 'dips' and with the summer season here a lot of dips will be served at picnics, barbecue's etc.........Aside from the time of year it is a good year round snack to be enjoyed with fresh veggies...............so everyone can induge in.
.........this dip is creamy and mild tasting and one of my favourite dips, believe me I have made numerous 'tried and true' recipes throughout the years. Depends on what company comes over or if it is just my husband and daughter and I then I will add some minced garlic to give it some more 'punch'.........otherwise it tastes just good as it is. But I do make it a few hours before so the flavours can marry together and a more stronger flavour.
8 ounces cream cheese, room temp.
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 scallions, white and green parts, minced
2 Tbsp. fresh parsley leaves, minced
1 Tbsp. fresh dill, minced
1 tsp. kosher salt
3/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Place the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, scallions, parlsey, dill, salt and pepper in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and blend.
