Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome. Recipes are enjoyed, but you can write about your love of Twizzlers or type out a nursery rhyme that has food in it (I’m thinking of “Jack Sprat Shall Eat no Fat,” “Sing a Song of Sixpence” and “Hot Cross Buns,” for starters).In other words, the Food on Fridays parameters are not at all narrow. I think of it as a virtual pitch-in where everyone brings something to share; even if the content of one item is unrelated to the rest, we sample it all anyway and have a great time.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (the big one above or the new smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post and join us through Mr. Linky.Here’s a Mr. Linky tutorial:

Food on Fridays with AnnThe other day we forgot to buy veggie dip for a party, so I quickly assessed the basic ingredients available in the fridge, then headed to the computer. What dip recipe could I quickly whip together?I combined recipes and ended up with this curry dip.Do you like curry? If so, I urge you to try some version of this dip. It’s creamy-delicious and pretty, too.I had to act quickly to get to the party, so I’m not 100 percent sure what went into it. But here’s what I think I used, more or less:Hurried Curry Dip(no need for slow-down jokes, thankyouverymuch)1 cup mayo (I didn’t have sour cream or yogurt, but either could have been a nice addition/substitution)1 teaspoon curry1/4 teaspoon turmeric (I happened to have some, but it wouldn’t be necessary)1/4 t cayenne pepper (I had some kind of Spicy Pepper stuff that I shook in)2 tablespoons ketchup2 teaspoons lemon juice1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (I must have left this out, because I don’t think I have any)2 dashes salt1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (I doubt I put that much in)Mix together, chill, and use as a vegetable dip; though I also thought it would be nice as a dip for fries or chicken fingers.
