Dip into a new appetizer

Since Jace was born in June, my garden was certainly pushed to the wayside. My neighbor Lorraine was ever so kind to help me out with that and go hack away at my six-foot-tall tomatoes for me over the last couple months and salvage them. On one of her visits to come see the baby, my lovely neighbor was kind enough to share a new dip recipe with me that she thought everyone could use. This recipe should help all gardeners out to use up some of those cucumbers you have laying around. It also could be a new staple in your game day buffet. I know I am always looking to add a new dip or appetizer to my list when we have company.

Cucumber Dip

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese
2 cucumbers peeled and chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1 tsp. hot sauce
Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Then add remaining ingredients and serve.
