A Visit With Tosha and Family







There is no better way than to end the busy week with good food and the fellowship of good friends. Last night the Hernandez family opened their home to us and one of my favorite friends, Tosha Khoury, along with her husband, Matt and their children, Aubrey and Asher.

Tosha and have known each other for many years. Our friendship began, I believe at the age of 12 or 13 when we both attended the school at First Church. Sis. Sharon Thomas was our teacher! From that time on we have so many memories of hanging out together, and going to services and conventions - I could go on. Since then she decided to fall in love, get married and move far far away to Minnesota. I miss her dearly, but when she comes home to visit it's such a treat to get to spend some time with her. Since she and her family are here for Thanksgiving, were able to plan a night to hang out and have some fun.

As always, Sonia cooked up a great meal of pasta with chicken, salad, bread AND my favorite bean dip. (I could live on this stuff - really.) I brought along some seven-layer cookies and cheesecake with rasberry sauce, and the cheesecake was never touched! We ended the evening playing Catch Phrase - gals against guys. Our hubbies turned out to be the biggest cheaters I have ever played with! Needless to say, we had a great time and hope it won't be too long before the Khoury family comes back for another visit.

Oh my goodness, that night we had a blast. Matt and I still have our laughs from that night. Matt was a little extra ornery (sp?) I think it rubbed off from Sam and Robert. We will have to make that a tradition. You will have a new bundle of joy next time we get together. I love you.

Hello Mr. chef, the bean dip is called the 7 layer bean dip. just remember Ortega & Rosa Rita. . .LOL so easy i think Monica and kellee tried this before but no comment on its turn out. . . lets just say it was different then mine. lol. . . but you just layer 7 items. 1st the re-fried (Rosa Rita is what i use)beans, 2nd guacamole, 3rd sour cream, 4th cheese (i like to use the mixed cheddar & monterey jack) 5th freshly diced tomatoes, 6th black olives (shopped & drained very well) and 7th Ortega diced peppers(also chopped and drained) (its also really good with diced jalapenos. ENJOY. . . xoxo Sonia

Cool!

I actually found another recipe online and of course changed it, I can't resist. I mixed in taco seasoning with the sour cream and added scallions and red onions, and it turned out great (I think). I'm going to have to try this again with the jalapeƱos!
