This is a great party dish and easy for me out in the country to find the ingredients.

I am headed to College Station today to get my nails done and a little and I repeat shopping……I love to shop.  

It is going to be in the 70’s day, but the wind is blowing like crazy…we have had wind since Oct., which is unusual for us.   People are complaining and it is getting on their last nerve.  Yesterday sustained winds of 15-20 miles per hour with gust up to 35 mph.  Juan and I were working outside and I had to come in several times, just to get out of wind.   Strange weather patterns.

Have a great day .

See Y’all,
