PLEASE TRY THIS!! Enchilada casserole.

Soo it is snowing--like crazy still. So what else to do but cook and eat. This was yummo and relatively EASY!!! Oh and before we get started somebody ask Mo how many times he has been bathed and changed today due to some unforseen circumstances in his pants??? Huh??? He's still cute though you have to admit. When will this end?? Nothing like a snow day at home
Enchilada Casserole
24 corn tortillas==I used white corn
2 large cans of red Enchilada Sauce--I like Old El Paso
1lb. ground beef browned with..
2-3 green onions chopped and mixed in.
1/2 large can of black olives chopped
16-24 oz. of cheese--shredded--I used Monterey Jack and Cheddar
1 can refried beans
Turn oven to 350. Grease 9x13. Layer in this order sauce---1/3 can or so to start, 6 corn tortillas, beef mixture,black olives, cheese, corn tortillas, sauce, beans (just dallop them on), cheese, corn tortillas, sauce, beef mixture, black olives, cheese, corn tortillas, sauce, beans, cheese, corn tortillas. Spread remaining beef (if you have any) followed by sauce on top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Spray foil with non stick spray and cover dish. Bake for 30 minutes, remove foil and bake an additional 30 minutes. Serve with fresh cilantro if you have it and sour cream. Yummy and much easier than enchiladas!


Recent WAY fun trip to see the Lady Razorbacks play the Lady Vols of Tennessee. I loved it! Check out Airl's pimp new glasses. He is getting WAY to cool for me!

Brooks ALWAYS tries to look away from the camera!!

Eating choc-chip cookies in the floor and above Kate with her cousin-in-law!

On a cooking note check this out! YUMMO and mega quantity. I think this recipe could definitely be modified to your preference----but the basics ROCK---alfredo sauce + spaghetti sauce+salsa! Loved it! Keeping up with the Joneses: Cheesy Baked Pasta. (I'm not sure I linked this correctly so just go to and look it up. You won't be sorry!!! I'm out to watch snow and decorate Valentine boxes.
Thought you should know what I served for breakfast this a.m.--choco-pb-oats!! Yummo and so healthy!

Super Bowl Menu

Ok. So YUMMO. I seriously outdid myself tonight---and no pics to prove it---and no I didn't outdo myself but it was good!

Buffalo Chicken Roll Ups

Cooked Chicken shredded lightly seasoned with whatever:) I used seasoned salt.
Whole Wheat tortillas
Buffalo or BBQ sauce
Blue Cheese Dressing.

Okay, do I need to explain what to do here? Roll em up and enjoy! Delicious--much better than classic wings!

New To Me Cheese Dip

1 lb. GOOD sausage
1 block cream cheese
1 can Rotel tomatoes

Brown the sausage. Drain the fat. Add cream cheese and tomatoes. Melt together over medium heat. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Choco-Nana Smoothies

1/2 banana
1 cup milk
2 T. peanut butter
2 scoops vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream
Squeeze or two---of choco. syrup
extra ice if desired

Layer in order of ingredients listed and blend away! May need more or less milk, depending on desired thickness--can add bit of water to thin as well!

Today as we were leaving for church, I quickly threw 5 boneless skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot with a little water, maybe 1/2 cup and some seasoned salt and ground black pepper. I set the cook time on 4hrs High and walked into bliss after church! It worked perfectly! I drained off the broth, shredded the breasts, added our favorite BBQ sauce and served Chicken BBQ sandwiches for lunch. Yummo, quick and easy. I also had enough chicken for tonight's wraps and for sure 3 lunches this week--all because of a little planning and small effort this a.m. !

Tommorrow you may or may not get a picture of my snow bath yesterday! Yes, a snow bath. and it rocked!
