Adventures in Cooking

Hello, Monday!  I can't believe how fast this weekend went by!  Saturday was a busy day for me with the OSU Scrub Run, three Mary Kay classes, and church.  Sunday was a lazy day, and now it is Monday again.  The one thing we did do yesterday was cook dinner.  Yummy, yummy dinner.  From PW (of course).  So, I thought I would share.

White Chicken Enchiladas

I must tell you, however, that the link to these on her blog are not exactly how they appear in the cookbook.  So, maybe you should just go buy the darn cookbook.  You will not regret it.  Okay, so maybe your waistline will regret it, but your taste buds won't. 

These enchiladas were so good.  Not too difficult to make, but there are lots of steps involved so it was pretty time consuming.  It was totally worth it.  You must try these, but for your sanity, try them on a day when you have lots of time to be in the kitchen.  For us, that was yesterday.

Now since I don't want to just leave you with one new recipe, I will also share something I recently made for the second time, Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla Pie. (this link takes you to another blog with the recipe.....I am too lazy to type it out!)

I am in agreement with that blog on how good this is.  And it is easy to make if you have chicken already prepared.  We had bought a rotisserie chicken the day before and had leftovers that I used to make my Pie.  This was a great meal for us because we always have leftover chicken and because I almost always have the rest of the ingredients on hand.  The girls loved it and so did Jason!

Lastly, a Mexican Rice that will go great with both.  Also a PW recipe as you will see if you click the link!

This rice was yummy in terms of flavor, but mine was not cooked enough.  I think I needed more broth.  Her recipe calls for equal amounts of broth and rice and I have found that I almost always need close to twice as much liquid as rice when I am cooking with long grain rice.  I will try making this again because the rice that was done was delicious!

What are you making that is yummy?  Have a recipe that I should try?
