My husband and I love cooking, and we especially enjoy creating our own recipes using items we already have in our fridge and pantry. Today, we started out just wanting to make a sour cream dip for the 4th of July. In our typical fashion (things always get more complicated than they need to be) we decided to each make one and have a competition to see who could create the tastier dip using ingredients we already had. I made mine first, but I didn’t take any photos of the process. Mine contained fresh garden chives, homemade sriracha, black pepper, dried onion, garlic powder, and salt. Ryan decided to go a different direction, using soy sauce, green chiles, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce.
He started with a spoonful of sour cream.
Then came the green chiles.
Next, there was a most generous glug of Worcestershire followed by soy sauce.
He stirred it all up, added a bunch more sour cream, and stirred it some more!
This is where it gets really exciting for me. We got to use our super fun neck clip card holders to label the jar! These things are so handy and cute! They pop right on the jar, and you can stick any card or paper in the clip and write whatever you wish! I had a fun piece of blue cardstock and just used a white bistro marker to write on it!
OK, you’re not going to believe it, but it gets even better (of course, keep in mind that I’m a total Mason jar
geek fanatic). Our silver storage lids screw on over the neck clips (see picture), so once we had this all ready to go, we just popped a storage lid on top and stuck the whole shebang in the fridge for tomorrow!
Seriously, how cute will it be to serve our dips out of Mason jars? And if we have leftovers, we’ll stick a metal storage lid on top, pop the whole thing back in the fridge, and have a dip to munch on for the rest of the week! And, in the entire process, we used ONE dish!
