A perfectly dip-friendly lunch, with an artistic touch by Addie, Amanda's daughter. 


Kids love dipping things and I need to work on my dip-based lunches. Tara O'Brady came to the rescue with her addictive buttermilk ranch dressing. I poured some into containers, and then filled larger containers with sliced Israeli cucumbers, radishes, pea shoots, and asparagus for dipping, and a few slices of Serrano ham for eating however my kids want to. Over the weekend, I baked the Sunday Night Cake from Baked Explorations -- a cinnamon-scented sour cream cake with chocolate icing. That went in, too.
