8 ounces Philadelphia cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup sour cream 2 tablespoons milk 2 tablespoons dried, minced onion flakes 1 large garlic clove, minced or run through a garlic press 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes 1 regular bag of dried beef, or 1 glass jar of dried beef Butter to grease the pie plate 1/2 cup chopped pecans 2 tablespoons melted butter

I haven’t been invited back to this annual party. Get out your food processor and put the first six ingredients into it. If it has a pulse button, use that to get the ingredients well chopped and combined. Then add the dried beef to the processor and pulse it some more, to get the beef well-chopped and mixed in. Butter a 9-inch pie plate and pour the mixture into it. Spread the 1/2 cup chopped pecans on top of the ingredients in the pie plate. Finally, drizzle on the 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. Use this as a dip for some nice party crackers; it will be a great appetizer. You can also serve this on toast points or even as a spread on fresh biscuits. If she again brings up the subject of you not buying roses or expensive chocolates for the special day, here’s my final advice: Duck and run!
