I did not make Thanksgiving dinner this year. We headed south for an afternoon with family and it was quite lovely. The down side to not cooking is that there are no leftovers. Now, I did end up with some carrot casserole, some mashed potatoes, a little turkey and a piece of pie but only enough for Friday’s lunch.
Chicken (well, turkey) Enchiladas - Laura’s Recipe :)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
1 can diced green chilies
4-6 cups grated cheese - (cheddar/jack or Mexican mix)
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
8 flour tortillas
Mix together soup, sour cream, chilies and ½ of the cheese. Spread ½ of the mix evenly in the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Add chopped chicken to the remaining mix. Fill tortillas with the mix, roll and put into pan. Top with remaining cheese.
Bake at 350* for 30-40 minutes until hot and bubbly
Serve with salsa.
Strangely enough, I like to have a lot of things going on all at once. As I have turned my attention to the wedding reception next weekend, the hand made things I want to work on for Christmas and the fact the Thanksgiving is next Thursday, I realized that I have not even posted the pictures from the birthday party that was in October. So for everyone who has been so patiently waiting to see how it all turned out, here you go!
Thanks to Briee and Tasha and Ryan for all their help with the games and the activities and the face painting. And thanks to Tasha and Jan for bringing their wonderful cameras and getting such great pictures. Last but not least, thanks to Laura, for helping with pretty much everything. It was a great party.
Links to a variety of food related things frequently land in my in box. But this week I have been bombarded with way too many not to share.
Thanks to Mom for this one. And a special thanks to Dad for reading the WSJ for his WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE!
And then my sister Lauren sent this tonight. STOP THE MADNESS!
(It wouldn’t let me copy the picture. Just go check it out, you won’t regret it!)
So, there you have some food for thought. Ha ha ha.
