National Corn Chip Day :)

January 30, 2012

Yum Yum Yum.. I loved when my dad made his ” Kickin Frito Pie” .. It was just a plain old frito pie but he made it fun. My dad has always been just a bog joker , so he liked to make everything fun while we learned. I remember the smell of the chilli like it was yesterday. I could smell it coming up the drive way I would run in the house and yell “YAY Kicken Frito Pie” , I would run up give him a big bear hug and run into the kitchen ” wash you hands pumpkin ” he would always yell out. How always had everything set out like an assembly line. ” Cut those tomatoes up real fine, Jess” .. Once we had everything out and ready..  we would dig in:) My dad always cooked for an army even though only 2 of us lived at home 🙂 I didnt mind though I could eat that delicious frito pie for weeks !
