Welcome Home Celebration

I forgot to take any pictures...but Saturday night I made my daughter soft taco's for dinner. Her request!! I bought blue tortilla chips and put them on a beautiful fiesta platter. Then I had 2 green martini glasses stationed at end of each side of the platter. They were filled with Salsa.
I fried some Andouille sausage and added a can of refried beans and 1/2 teaspoon of margarine (I know heart attack in a can right?), and chopped up the sausage and added into the beans. It was so good.
Then I fried the hamburger meat adding the taco seasoning packet and water. I tried to make cheese and hamburger dip but I used the cheapo cheese instead of velvetta and it didn't turn out right...
So then I chopped onion, tomatoes, had bought shredded cheese (colby and cheddar mix) and made home made Guacamole and a Guacamole dip for the chips. I heated up the flour tortillas in the microwave. My children and one of my coworkers really seem to enjoy themselves. I was so tired that I forgot to take a picture but please take my word...I loved all the praise I got from the food and the pretty table!!
