Boggs Reunion Day

Hey friends, happy Saturday. It is Odie coming to you from Carter Caves State Park in Kentucky. This is near the area where our Boggs family is from originally. It is beautiful here at Carter Caves. If you are ever in the area I highly recommend visiting the park. 

Dad put up a great post about things he learned right here in the park when we was 14 years old. If you have not read it you ought to check it out. I think you will like it.

It has been very good catching up with different family members on the Boggs side. We all gathered around in the campground with a couple of guitars, a mandolin and Mom's piano to pick and grin a while last night. It was a lot of fun. We have some talented cousins that can really sing and I think we all had a good time. I am looking forward to the actual Boggs reunion today. Lots of food will be involved in the day and I know it will be good. I am still trying to be good and not blow the diet but it will be a challenge this weekend.

My Grandparents arrived yesterday and all of my Dad's siblings and their spouses are here. We have not all been here together for 5 years so this is special. My only Boggs first cousins missing are Deidre, Victor and Isaac. I wish they could be here to enjoy the fun but we are having a grand time. 

We have been taking lots of pictures this week so I am sure we will have a bunch of pictures to post soon. Here is one from last night to hold you over.

We have enjoyed Mexican S'mores a couple times this week. They are totally scrumptious!! Dad posted about them last year. Mom even made them low fat this time. 

I do not cook very often, but I do enjoy making something occasionally. I decided to make Buffalo Chicken Dip for today's dinner. The recipe I use I found on FRANK'S® Website.   I usually do the slow cooker version. 

I prefer Ranch dressing and Cheddar cheese in mine. This is a dish I can make fat free! You can serve it with chips, crackers, pretzels, or by itself. I even like it cold. Sometime I eat it on a sandwich. I know this is not a new dish but it is one I enjoy making and eating.

You can find the recipe HERE.

I do not have any pictures from past times I have made the dip but here is a picture from their website.
