The world's best Spinach Dip

I had an recipe that was almost the same as this, and used it for
every party I went to. I needed an appetizer to take w/ me to an
easter dinner, so I grabbed the Pumpernickel loaf out of my freezer,
and whipped up a slightly different version than my regular. The new
recipe disappeared faster than my old one! :P~~~ Ssome people call it
a Rip-&-Dip, because that's what you do. I used a small, round loaf of
pumpernickel bread, hollowed it out, used the bits of bread for
dipping, and used the loaf like a bowl. If you need a larger amount,
simply doulbe the dip recipe, and either use a small loaf of
pumpernickel and one of sourdough, or use a large one of either. Here
is the small dip recipe, which nearly fills the small loaf:

1/2 pkg. frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 pkg. Knorr dry vegetable soup mix (use 1/2 the dehydrated veggies          
and 1/2 the powder from 1 pkg.)
1        scallion, finely chopped
3/4 cup  fat free sour cream
3/4 cup  fat free Miracle Whip (don't use mayonnaise)
1/2 tsp. garic powder
2   tbsp evapourated skim milk

Squeeze all the liquid out of the spinach until it is like a ball. Get 
out your sharpest knife and chop it for a minute or so. Sift through the 
soup mix to get to the powder at the bottom, and add 1/2 the pkg. to all 
the other ingredients. Mix it up really well, and try to pour it all 
into an empty sour cream or cottage cheese container. Find room in the 
fridge for the dip, and leave it there at least an hour, or better yet: 
keep there overnight when you can grab it and the bread, throw them in a 
bag, head to the car and go! The longer it's in the fridge, the more 
intense the flavour gets. My sister hates onions, and she couldn't even 
tell they were in there! :o) Hope you like the recipe!
