Taste and see Thursday

Taste and see that the Lord is good Thursday. I do think that Food is so meant to be shared with friends and family. So today I'm posting a recipe from a dear family member who is being laid to rest today. Ruby Campbell is Chad's grandma, who was 88 years young. She was a short little lady that had a heart of gold and loved her grandchildren (chad) and great grandchildren ( our kiddos) so much.
She was born on April Fool's day and I think that made her kinda spunky and liked to be a fun grandma. Grandma Campbell is known for her chip dip, so today I thought I'd post her famous chip dip. I love to make her dip, it's the best with Sterzings potato chips, or veggies (if you want healthy with your dip.... kinda not so much healthy though). I think I will always miss Grandma's chip dip, even if I do make it again. I am so thankful for all the memories we have with her, one lifetime is never long enough with those you love. I am thankful for this recipe and all the recipes/ cookbooks we have from her. She will be missed by all our crew at our house.

So sorry to hear of your loss, Tara (and Chad), please accept my deepest sympathy ... Grandmas like that are sooooo special! Pray that the day goes smoothly.

Tara said...

It's a spice that old people It is in the spice aisle. It makes the dip tasty!

I am so sorry, Tara. My grandma was named Ruby too. I lost her last year. She was also known for her cooking. I keep her picture on my fridge and think of her when I make her chocolate pie. What a great way to live on the hearts of your children, the tasty ways they cared for and loved us.

Hope running is going well.
