October 18th~ a day to cook
Friday, October 18, 2019
I usually do food prep for the week on Sunday but got in a mood to DO. I had a new recipe for pork and cheese enchiladas ..so set out to prepare those. and while pork was cooking I chopped up a weeks worth of salad and crisp snacks. Then discovered a recipe for Ginger-Pumpkin muffins..those will be created in the AM. I had never made enchiladas this way before..I just "did it" before. This time I actually followed a recipe..there were way too many bowls dirty !! However they say a good cook never leaves a clean dish or pan in the place. Man I must be the Martha Stewart of my house!!
Enchiladas turned out good..tasty a bit different than my usual and I am not sure I will make again. My way is quicker , easier and less mess, yet just as tasty. But I do love trying new recipes!! I have a collection of printed off..made once never to be made again recipes. For my DIL, Tammy's birthday I searched out a neat chocolate cake with strawberry filling and deep fudge icing. Now that is one that I will NEVER make again. It was so rich we needed to take it to town and pass out pieces ! Almost like fudge, could only eat one small piece!!
Some one suggested I open a bakery or advertise baked goods..but then it wouldn't be fun..it would be a have to. I did enough years of have to..I wanna stick with fun now!
Speaking of fun..I think it would be fun to kick back with a cuppa tea and read for a bit!
Nite ya'al ...enjoy your weekend!! Gonna be a cool, windy possibly snowy one for us!
