I love memes. Frankly, they’re the best part of social media. A few of my online friends regularly post memes, mostly sarcastic jabs about their professions or country culture or whatever. Really, it’s the funny friends who make social media even worth my time and are basically the only ones I follow anymore (Honey, if you’re only friending me to sign up for a home party for your pyramid scheme, I will roll my eyes so far into my head that I will see my brain and hit decline.).

Recently, I’ve seen a meme poking fun at food bloggers, in which the person complains that he simply wants the recipe, and not have to scroll through the long story romanticizing how the color of saffron reminds her of that autumnal trip she recently took to Vermont, or how she came up with this recipe before studying interpretive dance abroad in Paris. I actually lol’ed when I read it the first time. It hit close to home, so to speak. And it got me to thinking that he ain’t wrong.

So, in honor of that meme, this will be the shortest intro to a recipe that I’ve written so far. I won’t come up with some farmyard anecdote to leave you in a state of amused curiosity to make this dip recipe. Hope you’re happy, Connor, Elaina, and whomever else posted that meme (winky emoji). You make social media tolerable.
