2. Shredded steak, cheese and onion enchiladas.

pinto revisits his rocky relationship with electric choppers/shredders.

Left over peppered strip steak, 2 cheeses and onion, shredded via Hamilton Beach. Cilantro. Wrapped tight in corn tortillas, smothered in a spicy enchilada sauce, baked on low and slow till heated through. Served with a sour cream scoop on top.

Whole canned corn. Sliced cabbage with some sort of dressing. Fresh fruit plate.

6. I made some unusual *enchiladas* a few days ago.

I had a bunch of cheeses from the reunion - small amounts of many different ones including cream cheese, goat cheese with cranberries and jarlsberg. I sauteed chopped onions, threw in some leftover chopped turkey, added some enchilada sauce and then mixed with the cheese.

I only had flour tortillas, but I rolled the cheese up in those, put some shredded mozz on top and baked.

Served with refried beans and lettuce/tomato/sour cream on top.

Sounds weird, right? But it came out pretty well.

However, I would prefer yours!

3. Not sure. We may go into town.

Just paid for another week here and I want to take advantage of some of the eateries before we head out.

Hmmm.... Chinese? Italian? Seafood? Mexican?

4. Encourage you go for Chinese. It never comes out as good at home as in house, in my experience.

Even after working 2 years in a Chinese restaurant and living with my cousin's Chinese family in the past, I can't replicate it at home.

No clue why that is. It may just be I'm a lousy Chinese cook...

Whatever you go for, enjoy the week.

5. I have had the same experience.

They make an incredible moo shoo pork, which I could never make at home. And dumplings, which I have spent hours putting together, only to end up with a plate of mush that looks nothing like a dumpling.

I think it may have to do a lot with equipment and technique.

Now I know what I will have tonight!

7. Baked chicken thighs,

mashed sweet potato, and a big salad and leftover cloverleaf rolls. I've been fine-cleaning house all day in anticipation of putting up our tree tomorrow. I found the old fashioned (looking) bubble lights at the hardware store and bought two strands. They do remind me of childhood Christmas celebrations at Aunt Zora's house.

9. zucchini crust pizza

I had already made my pizza crust from zucchini.

I had also roasted tomatoes.

I made tomato sauce with the roasted tomatoes.

So now I decided to assemble the zucchini crust pizza by making individual pieces.

I sauteed some portobello mushrooms.

I made caramelized onions.

I found some delicious red and yellow peppers that my spouse had prepared and stored in the 'frig.

I put some shredded mozzarella in a bowl.

I put my crust on the grill and gave it a nice brown. Then I assembled a couple pizza pieces by putting a layer of tomato sauce, then the peppers, then ...you get the idea. I topped it all off by cutting fresh basil leaves and sprinkling over.

Ummmmm! So good!

There is nothing like totally fresh ingredients.


Cher

p.s. yellerpup, I am totally charmed by your bubble lights.

10. Big pot of pinto beans,

brown rice and cornbread fingers. I used bell peppers from the garden if you can believe it. It's been so warm here, the pepper plants just keep producing. I'm loving it!
