Grandma Iola's Vegetable Dip

This is a really old recipe. Iola was mother the of  Peg, Sally, & Leona. Though she passed away years ago, her cooking talents live on in her girls, grandaughters, great grandaughters and others... (she is my grandmother, so I think she is the absolute best!).

Grandma Iola raised her family of 5 children in Park City Utah, and worked in a Cafe called "The Junction" for years.  She would go to work @ 4:00 a.m., make 20-30 pies (including the crusts), dozens of biscuits, rolls, bread, and untold other items, and then prepare to cook for the breakfast rush!
Here is a recipe she made often for her family.  It's easy, delicious, and so adaptable! Try it as a topping for baked potatoes, or stir into mashed potatoes...

VEGETABLE DIP
1 c. Buttermilk
1 (8oz. pkg) Cream Cheese, softened
1 Tbsp. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Pepper
1 tsp. MSG seasoning 
(you can leave this out if your sensitive to MSG)

Combine all ingredients together with an electric hand mixer. Be sure to mix well!  Chill for several hours before serving.
