Irish Blessing
May the roads rse to meet you
May the winds always be at your back
May the sun shine warm upon you face
The rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand

One of the most treasured memories that I share with my children is 10+ years of choir tours.  We have been from Canada, Mexico, San Francisco, Vegas to the Bahamas and all places in between.  One of my most fond memories is our dining experience at the Grand Canyon.  We had 50+ people on this trip and we decided to have a cookout.  We cooked hot dogs on small aluminum grills in front of our cabins.  Here are some of the dips we had on this trip.

Use one large container of sour cream, one large jar of salsa and 1 tbsp of garlic.  Mix well and serve with tortilla chips.  Just like the name says, it is a staple of the snacks we have at Vacation Bible School.

French Onion Dip
Use one large container of sour cream.  Mix in one package of Knorr French Onion Soup mix.  Serve with potato chips.

Another favorite dip of our family is Tha Dip.  My daughter has requested this for her birthday dinner for several years.

Tha Dip
1 large brick of Velvetta cut into cubes
1 can Rotel tomatoes (as hot as you like)
1 package of sausauge (use your favorite)  Take the casing off and brown like hamburger meat.  Use a slotted spoon to get the grease off before adding to Velvetta and tomatoes.
Put in a crock pot and cook on high until melted.  Serve with Tortilla chips.

My Fvorite Spinach Dip
1 10oz.package of frozen spinach thawed.  Squeeze out all excess water.  Put into a medium sized bowl.  Add 2 cups sour cream, 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 package of Knorr French Onion Soup Mix, 1 8 oz can of chopped water chesnuts, 1/2 cup on chopped green onions and one dash of garlic powder.  Mix together thoroughly and refrigerate overnight for best flavor.  Serve with Fritos scoops.
