That's a really great idea!... but I got to thinking about everything else I have to make for this damn party (I'm not necessarily looking forward to it, can't you tell?), and I decided to just buy premade dip and not eat any of it. I haven't eaten dip in a few years now, I'm sure one more bbq without won't kill me. But I *AM* going to try that idea the next time I get a craving for it. I was going to do the onion soup mix thing, too.
