Low Country Boil

Cleaned house all week and enjoyed the fruits of our labor yesterday at our Low Country Boil.  For those of you who don't know what that is it's a slow cooking in a huge pot of Videlia Onions, red potatoes, corn on the cob, sausage, Old Bay Spice, a bouquet garni  of other spices and most importantly fresh Georgia shrimp.  Our friend Mike brought the pot and did the cooking while the rest of us sat around drinking cold drinks and eating 7-layer Bean Dip.
The sky was clear and it got very hot and eventually we all ended up inside eating way too much and talk, talk, talking.  Most of our friends are musicians, playing in various bands, and like most of our get togethers it ended up with most of them with a guitar in their hands and singing.
Any time we get together with friends they always ask me to make the 7- Layer Bean dip and I thought I'd share the recipe:

In a large glass bowl put
a layer of low fat refried beans
a layer of guacamole
a layer of low fat sour cream mixed with a packet of taco seasoning
a layer of shredded cheese I use Sargento 3 Mexican cheeses
a layer of tomatoes
a layer of chopped green onions
a layer of chopped black olives

Trying to Keep the Chef Cool!

As our friend John said as he left, good food, good friends and good times, it doesn't get any better than that.
