spinach dip

difficulty rating: Rrrrgh . . . . Brains . . . .
now THIS is how spinach dip is supposed to look and taste! no mayo in sight and plenty of happy green spinach, not the tiny bit of sad brown stuff found behind the deli counter. besides, this is so easy it's embarrassing. dooo eeeet:
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach (about 1.5 cups, lightly drained)
1 cup sour cream (use low fat if you like)
1 pkg light cream cheese (8oz or 1 cup)
1 pkg dry vegetable soup mix (knoor or no-name work fine, don't get the tomato-vegetable type)
2 Tbs-1/3 cup minced onion
1 Tbs dill
1 tsp garlic 1/2 tsp black pepper
2-5 Tbs milk, to thin if needed

some of these measurements are approximate since i just throw this together, it's pretty forgiving. you can mix it in the blender if you like.
soften cream cheese, stir everything together, refrigerate for at least an hour
serve with bread, preferably sourdough
