neim@n marcu$ dip

Occasionally, during the hot summer months, you might find that your Carrotsticks have wilted a little.

The best way to revive them is to throw them in some water.

Even a germ-infested bacteria breeding cess/swimming pool seems to work fine.

Just try to avoid the temptation of nibbling on them after they've been dipped in that.

Instead, on Good Food Friday, you might want to try this dip instead:

Cryptosporidium Free Neim@n Marcu$ Dip

6 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
1 ½ c shredded cheddar cheese
1 small package sliced almonds
3-4 green onions, sliced
1 c sour cream
1 c mayo
1 tsp lemon juice
½ tsp garlic powder

Mix sour cream and mayo together. Add rest of ingredients. Chill. Serve as dip or spread. Also good on baked potatoes.

This is one of those urban legend recipes, you know: "I was eating lunch with my girlfriends in the Neim@n Marcu$ restaraunt, and they served this fabulous appetizer. And I said to my waiter, 'This dip is so good! I would love this recipe.' And when the waiter came back, he handed me a copy of the recipe. I was delighted. That is until I got my credit card bill later that month, and found out they had billed me $250 for that recipe. So now I'm going to share it with you for free, just to spite them." One of those.

In our never ending attempt to dispel this kind of myth, we in the Lunchroom have made multiple attempts to contact Neim@n Marcu$ at their headquarters in Texas. They, however, have refused to answer our calls made to random phone numbers in the Dallas area.

Though they may have "No Comment," our comment is "This Dip is Delicious!" Try it. It'll impress all your friends and family at your next "Let's Contract a Recreational Water Illness" Party.

nibbling on your carrot sticks is rather cannibalistic, don't you think?

If the cryptosporidium won't kill you, that yummy dip might! It sounds evilly delicious!

Hmm, I thought that story went with a cookie recipe. That's an urban legend for you.
