Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In addition to fashion, we love to celebrate every holiday with food, of course! Our whole household is wearing our green clothes, and we stopped by Sprinkles and got our traditional Green Velvet cupcake and Baileys Irish Cream cupcake. Yummy!
Growing up, we used to go down to the lake to visit my grandparents on all major holidays. It was always such a wonderful time. We would wake up to the smell of my Grandma Peggy frying bacon and my Grandpa Joe making pancakes from scratch. We loved to sit there on the tall bar stools and watch them cook away. As Grandpa Joe cracked the eggs with brown shells into the batter, he would always joke and tell us they were “rooster eggs.” Great times! One of many culinary highlights of our times down at the lake was “Green Dip!” My aunt would typically bring it, and we would scarf it down the moment she walked in the door. We hope you love it too!
Lucky Green Dip aka Parsley Perfection
- 1 Egg
- 1 Teaspoon of Salt
- 1 Teaspoon of sugar
- 2 green onions
- Tabasco to taste (typically 10 shakes or so)
- 2 Tablespoons of vinegar
- 2 cloves of garlic (crushed). (We typically use the minced garlic in the jar and use the conversion on the jar).
- 1 bunch of parsley
- A dash of pepper (we typically use ½ teaspoon)
Mix all of the above ingredients in a blender.
- Then add in ¾ cups of pure vegetable oil into the blender and use the puree/mix setting until it is well blended.
Taste after it is all blended and add any additional Tabasco/pepper to taste.
Chill in refrigerator for a few hours until thick.
Enjoy with chips and/or veggies!
