One of my best friends in junior high and high school was a girl named Danielle.  Danielle and I were not the coolest girls that's for sure, but we met in 6th grade when everything was changing and we hit it off and became inseparable!  
Danielle's Dad was a great father, we was the kind of Dad who took us everywhere.  Being that my Dad was absent from most all my life I really liked her Dad.  He even took us to the Gulf of Mexico for spring Break once, camping for a week and he just was a great Dad.  Unfortunately about 5 years ago he had a massive heart attack and past away.  I don't keep in contact with Danielle very often, my SIL "J" is friends and I was actually friends with "J" before we even knew our husbands, but she talks to Danielle from time to time and she is doing well.  Last night I dreamed about her and this morning I wanted to share a recipe of her fathers it is called BLT Dip, it brings back fond summer memory's of pool parties, and fun with my friend.

1 quart of Mayo
1 pint sour cream
2 pounds bacon
2 med tomatoes
2 tablespoons of parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Cook your bacon crisp and crumble it all up.  Peel and deseed your tomato then cut into chunks.  Now mix all of the ingredients together.  chill and serve with club crackers.  This is always a major hit at my parties.  Enjoy!

Sounds good. How do you stay so thin!
Luther is like a father to me, my dad made some poor choices and left us when I was 9. Because of his lifestyle I choose not to have a relationship with him. And I don't want him around Madi.
My "family" has always been the people that really care about me-doesn't matter if we are related or not.

P.S. He loves you... said...

How about I'll come clean and you do all the cooking! ;D

Anything that requires a quart of mayo & 2 lbs of bacon is heaven in my book!

Thanks for the recipe - I will try it this weekend!
