Clam Dip

Makes a bowl full (how's that for precise? wait till you see the recipe)

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cost: $2.00

(cream cheese: .99, clams: 1.00?)

1 block cream cheese softened

1 can clams (chopped or minced), drain the juice but reserve some of it

lemon juice

garlic salt

Worcestershire sauce

Beat cream cheese till smooth and creamy. Add chopped or minced clams and mix those in. Now you're going to splash in a bit of the clam juice--let's start with 1/2 Tbsp and see how it goes for you. 

Then splash in some lemon juice (try another 1/2 Tbsp). Then put in a bit of garlic salt (start with 1/4-1/2 tsp of that).

Then splash in some Worcestershire sauce. Go for 1/2 Tbsp of that to begin with too. 

Now taste your dip. Does it need more fishy, lemony kick or more savory Worcestershire or a bit of garlic or salt. Adjust your seasonings and use it as a dip for crackers or veggies tonight.
