Thoughts On Sour Cream Enchiladas:

When I visit a tremendous Mexican restaurant I love to order chicken enchiladas. Well, the first thing I order from the waiter or waitress is corn chips and salsa. A nice drink goes well with the chips of course. Then after I have devoured the chips and drinks I like to order chicken enchiladas. There is something about the Mexican restaurant atmosphere that always gets me. They usually have some sort of Mexican music playing. Have you noticed that many Mexican restaurants have very decorative furniture? I just love the carved wooden chairs painted and finished to a shine.

Extra Information:

Enchiladas have an interesting history. Supposedly, they originated from the Mayan culture. Since corn was a regular food source for the Mayans they created tortillas to eat. The natural progression for the food would be chicken enchiladas. Over time the great-tasting dish made its way into Western food culture. You can read more about the history of the enchilada at Guadalajara's The History Of Enchiladas.

Quick Question:

How do you feel about my Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas Easy Recipe? Have you tried cooking chicken enchiladas before? Do you have a special recipe you would like to share with me? I would enjoy hearing from you concerning chicken enchiladas and any tips you might have when cooking them. Have you been enjoying my easy recipes? Maybe you missed my last recipe Impossible Cheeseburger Pie.

My Thoughts:

I've been off work for the past five days and it has been the fastest five days off I've had in a while. Each day it seemed I had something I needed to accomplish. I go back to work Tuesday afternoon because I work nights right now and it was Labor Day weekend. I'll get back to how my Labor Day went but first I'll share an update on my daughter's cell phone.

I got her a new phone and all her personal information was erased from the old phone and put on her new phone. Most importantly, she has all her baking recipes on her phone now and can continue baking her cookies for the farmer's market. She is very excited about that. She did mention to me that now she realizes how important personal information is to her on her cellphone. She talked about how valuable smartphones are and it made me proud to hear her talk that way. Obviously, I am having her pay for her phone. It would be easy just to forget about it since my phone provider is letting me finance her a used phone but in the long run, it will help teach her more responsibility.

I did manage to sell a TV on Facebook Marketplace over the five days off. I delivered it to the person who purchased it and I helped set up the brand new Roku that came with the TV. My youngest daughter went with me to help deliver the TV. It was a 42-inch plasma-screen television. It is very heavy too. It was a good thing it had carry handles on the TV. I had another person on Facebook Marketplace show interest in a trumpet I have for sale. They agreed to buy the trumpet and we planned on meeting up. On the day we were supposed to meet up, they changed their mind and decided not to purchase the trumpet. It is very disappointing when that happens but that is part of selling things online and meeting with them in public.

I helped my daughter move some things to her apartment at her mom's place and finished up the weekend at my mom's house on Labor Day. She cooked us pork steaks, brats, deviled eggs, macaroni and cheese, baked Brussels sprouts, and chicken noodles. We also had apple pie and a cake she made. My daughter baked her famous chocolate chip cookies. It was a good time with family and good food for sure.

As a final thought, I am thinking of installing a wood pellet heat stove in my house. I heat with propane but would like to supplement with wood heat. I don't want to worry about a regular wood stove and buying precut wood from individuals. I think wood pellets would be easier and help with the propane bill. Last year propane cost almost $4 a pound. I will share more about this heating project and the general cost in the future.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to hear from you about it. Please leave a comment below and share this post with a friend. Thank you for reading!

2 tablespoons milk

To bake: Lightly brown in a skillet, then place in baking dish. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes at 350 degrees or deep fry.

My Thoughts:

Before I get to writing about this wonderful Chicken Kiev Easy Recipe, I need to vent a little in this post. It has been a good weekend but also a bad weekend. I had the pleasure of attending my 30-year High School reunion and seeing former classmates. It really was a great time. Not everyone showed up but the ones that did, came with smiles, hugs, and handshakes. We got to talk about old times and tell stories of crazy things we did as kids.

The classmate who organized the reunion brought a VHS television to play an old VHS tape another classmate had made on the last day of school. It was so much fun to watch the video and to see all of us as young kids again. We all laughed together. There was a taco bar and drinks as well. Cookies and other party favors were provided. One classmate I didn't even recognize. Honestly, it seemed to me that everyone just gets better looking with age and I made a comment that we all age like fine wine. It was the first school reunion I had attended after 30 years. I didn't make it before because I was busy living out of state and raising kids. I should mention I was hesitant to attend past reunions because I didn't graduate with my class. I was a high school dropout and was embarrassed about it. I also didn't attend past reunions because I felt other classmates would not want to include me because of not graduating with them.

I did make up for not graduating with my classmates as far as education is concerned. I got my General Education Diploma in 1992 actually one year before my class graduated. Then in 2006, I began my online college education while being a full-time husband, dad, and employee. It was nice to feel included by the reunion invitation. School kids do grow up and become great adults. Those great adults do invite others to come to visit and talk about old times. It was really nice and I am grateful.

That was the good part of my weekend. Now I need to tell you about the bad part of my weekend. I had listed a Ford F150 camper shell on the Facebook Marketplace. I measured out the camper shell at 80 inches but had listed it as an 8-foot camper shell. It is actually a 6-foot camper shell. Someone contacted me interested in purchasing it. It was a 3-hour drive for the potential customer. I agreed to meet him halfway and drove over an hour. When he looked at the camper shell he discovered that it was actually a 6 1/2 foot camper shell. He was disappointed and I was too. Unfortunately, the sale was not made and I am sure he was saying some choice words about me on the drive home. I immediately changed the listing to the correct size of the camper shell. It was a lesson learned for me and one I do not intend on making again.

My teenage daughter asked if she could go on a float trip today with my second daughter and her coworkers. I agreed and they left out early on their trip. I had a gut feeling that my teenage daughter should leave her phone at home. I had visions of her dropping it in the water or on the river's edge. After some overthinking, I decided not to say anything about her phone. You can imagine what happened. I got a text towards the end of the day from my second daughter that her little sister had lost her phone. I thought to myself that I should've listened to my parental intuition and had her leave the phone at home after all. Turns out she had tipped her kayak over and her phone went over in the water. It was in a waterproof case but it was too late. She could not find it but managed to find her shoes that were off her feet.

I now must call the phone store and cancel service on her cell phone. My teenage daughter also came home looking like a lobster. She is red on her face, arms, and legs. She had sunscreen but I think she did not have enough on her skin. There was an excessive heat warning for the whole state of Missouri and she was out there over 10 hours. I feel like I dropped the ball on listening to my intuition. If you are a parent, have you ever experienced this? If you are not a parent, I can tell you that as a parent you blame yourself for everything bad that happens to your children no matter what. What is the lesson learned here? For my daughter, it was wearing more sunscreen and keeping better care of her phone. For me, it was doing a little more thinking and coaching her more on making sure those things negative that happened do not happen again in the future.



Thoughts On Chicken Kiev:

This Chicken Kiev Easy Recipe is super tasty and I am sure you will love it! What's the secret? In my opinion, it is the insane amount of butter along with parsley flakes, and onion. There is just something about the flavor. Not to mention the texture the breadcrumbs brings to your tastebuds. This chicken dish is thought to originate in the Ukraine but that is not accurate. It actually came from Paris. You can read more about this easy recipe from NPR's article on The Salt page.
