Do you know what sounds good right now? A nice dip. An edible dip, to be specific — though a dip in the lake or the pool wouldn’t hurt matters either, since it looks like it’s going to be in the 90s all week.

These two dip recipes go way back. My mother used to make them for faculty meetings when she was working as a teacher in Hershey, Nebraska — a small community outside North Platte — in the 1990s.
