Recipe - Anna's Dip

Anna is a truly dear friend of ours.  She gave up her vacation to stay home and care for our high needs dogs for a week.  She really gave of herself to us, and we'll never forget that.

One week ago, Anna hosted me and my mom to a lovely afternoon tea.  The food, and the company, were equally delightful.  Anna is a really, truly good woman, very down to earth, and every inch a gentlewoman.  And can I tell you she can (and did) paper her own walls?

One of the delightful parts of our day was Anna's dip for fresh fruit.  It seemed quite sweet, and yet, it had a little kick of something.  As it turns out, it was quite a healthful choice, no sugar, and the epitome, at least to me, of what sweet something ought to be served with tea.  We just served it on Saturday at our dear Destiny's graduation brunch.

So I give you, Anna's Dip:

1 cup good sour cream
3-4 oz. good cream cheese (or the awesome cheese we taught you to make here:)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

With all ingredients at room temperature, whirl it all about.  You could use a mixer, or a whisk, or even a fork, if need be.

Serve with the prettiest, freshest fruit you can find.  Delightful!!!
