Speaking of football, who is the underdog?? If the Bears aren’t there, I’m clueless. Besides, the underdog is usually who I like to cheer for because I don’t enjoy expected outcomes. I like some drama that involves 250-pound men and trophies. ? ….while dipping all-the-finger-foods in a bowl of Ranch. ?
This Ranch Dressing, friends? ??? It involves just 6 ingredients, 4 of which are found in your spice rack. If I had to guess, I think you most likely have all the goodies on hand.
