Last week Monday’s plans didn’t go according to schedule and the children didn’t have their Monday night movie and popcorn with Daddy. So it was rescheduled to Friday night so that I was able to join in the fun! I thought it would be fun to have something a little special for us to share together. A quick glance in the cupboards and fridge and I came up with this Easy Peasy Dill Dip Party Platter.
One of my favourite treats to enjoy while watching a movie at home in Canada was ripple chips (crisps) and dip them in dill pickle dip. Maille had provided me with a jar of their Mustard With White Wine, Dill and Lime to create a recipe for their culinary challenge, and I thought it would do the trick….
Dill Dip Directions:
- 100 gr Soft Cream Cheese (I used the lite variety)
- 5 ml Maille Mustard With White Wine, Dill and Lime
Mix these two ingredients together until well blended and your dill dip is done!
I like my children to eat healthy; unfortunately Mom and Dad don’t always live by the same rules. But it’s fun to mix things up every now and then! For our platter we used some veggie sticks I’d previously sliced up for the children’s snacks and I raided the goody cupboard for some savoury munchies. As I was craving the tastes of ‘home’, I found some ripple/ridged crisps and brought them out.
All that was left was to turn up the volume a little on the movie so we could hear it over our munching. The dill dip party platter was devoured in no time! The dill dip worked equally well with both the savoury snacks and the veggies. I’ll definitely be making this again for family gatherings or just a quiet night in on date night.
Now that you know my favourite dipper, what do you like to dip?
