Sour Cream Dishes

I've been getting some great deals on sour cream lately, now that I'm playing the "grocery game". But what does one do with so much sour cream? Well, I made a whole meal around this fattening stuff, and boy, was it good!
My friend, Mike, used to bring cucumbers into the office covered in sour cream and fresh dill. When Debbie J. at Homemaking Dreams blogged about her fresh basil, I immediately went outside to pick some fresh dill. I planted my dill from seeds this year and this is the first time I've ever grown any... boy, was it yummy chopped up in the cucumber salad. (let your cukes sit in salt for awhile before you mix the sour cream and dill together) We had cucumber salad left over, and my daughter made some awesome greek pitas with the leftovers. Cubed chicken breasts, lettuce, and chopped up cukes from the salad, all stuffed inside pita bread (left over from the Noah's Ark sandwiches mentioned in a recent post). YUMMY!

Next I mixed together this squash casserole from fresh home grown squash. I don't really follow a recipe, but use squash, onion, stuffing mix, sour cream, and cream of chicken soup. Love this stuff!

And believe it or not, I made the biscuits!! And yes, I used sour cream in my biscuit recipe. I found this recipe in a recent thrift store cookbook find. I've used the recipe several times, and so far, it's been a winner everytime. They are so easy to make and I'll be glad to share the recipe if anyone wants it. I didn't put any sour cream on the ham, but the ham sure did round out this meal. So easy, so quick, and so inexpensive!!

I love them in sour cream. I also like making a sweet/sour mix for them which I grew up with. I love
sour cream. Last time I had leftover from a huge Costco tub I made a chocolate cake that I found doing a google search.

I have some dill too, but haven't used any yet, so I need to try your recipe. I make squash casserole just like you did, except lately I've been using cream of celery soup. We love it both ways!

Your biscuits sound good too.

I noticed you used a small plate. Smart girl. When I use a big plate I fill it up. Need to remember to use the smaller plate.

Thanks for mentioning my blog.

Please post the biscuit recipe made with sour cream. Do you just substitute it for buttermilk and maybe adjust the shortening? They sound so good.

Also liked the comments about cukes and dill as well as basil.

Debbie J. got me to reading blogs.

Everything looks yummy! Another way to do the cucumbers is to mix together 1 cup mayo (or Miracle Whip), 1/4 cup sugar, 4 tsp vinegar, 1/2 tsp dill weed and 1/2 tsp salt and mix with peeled and sliced cucumbers.
