Salsa Verde Enchiladas

These are the BEST enchiladas! They are perfect when you want a quick and easy (but delicious!) meal on a crazy weeknight. Try them and lets us know what you think! They are sure to become a regular at your house too.

Ingredients:

1 pkg cream cheese

2 cans or jars of salsa verde sauce (I like the Trader Joe’s version)

1 jalepano

1 pkg of shredded monterrey cheese (or whatever you have on hand)

3-4 chicken breasts

Directions: Place chicken in a pan on the the stovetop on medium/ low with the lid on until fully cooked. Add salt and pepper to taste and shred with a fork and knife.While chicken is cooking, mix in a blender both jars of the salsa verde, softened cream cheese package, and jalepano. Depending on how spicy you like things you can remove or keep the seeds in your jalepano. Then, add a portion of the sauce about 3/4 cup to your chicken and mix with a 1/2 cup of monterrey cheese. Use this filling inside your favortie tortillas. Place 1/2 of chicken mixture into a tortilla and roll up and place tightly together in a baking dish. Add the remaining sauce over the top of the rolled up tortillas. Lastly, add the remainder of your cheese on top. Bake in the oven at 400 for about 15 minutes or until bubbly.

Celebrate Parents Day! {July 25th}

Duggar Family

Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar were elected as the 2009 National Parents of the Year and if you’re oppressively thinking, “Great, we can hardly handle our one child, there’s no way we could ever be nominated for such a grand award.” Sulk no longer because there are plenty of other things you and your significant other can do to celebrate Parents Day without having to worry about such awards that don’t include an entire camera lens full of your 19 children. In fact, it seems on days such as this that the customary thing to do is get away from those progeny that you so love for a nice, well-deserved date night.

Date Night Ideas For Parents, Soon-To-Be Parents, and Aspirational Parents:
P.S. These are some great ideas to “treat” your parents to if you are those lovely little progeny mentioned previously.

•    Host a costumed Murder Mystery Dinner. Serve gourmet chocolate cookies, of course.
•    Get in some laughs at a Comedy Club.
•    Rustle up some grub at a Rodeo. Wranglers with large belt-buckles and tucked in shirts a must.
•    Take a Swing Dancing Class.
•    Enjoy peasant-fair at Medieval Times.
•    Check out the latest exhibit at your Museum.

Happy Parents Day!

St. Patrick’s Day Party Tips

St. Patrick's Day

Spring is rapidly approaching with another excuse to entertain: St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) and the “wearin’ of the green” is a fun day to celebrate for Irish and non-Irish alike!

Though the typical Irish meal for St. Patty’s Day was boiled bacon and potatoes, Irish immigrants in the U.S. would use cheap meat that was tenderized with brine (corned beef) and slow cooked with cabbage, which became the traditional St. Patrick’s Day meal.

Serve the following to your guests with green embellishment and decorations:

Chocolate Mint Eclipse Cookies

Now, hire a bagpipe player and you’re set for a fabulously green party!

Fun Things To Do:

  • Learn a little about the history of St. Patrick’s Day here and do a few crafts with your kids!
  • Now if you’re really feeling like the luck of the Irish is on your side, go here to find an Irish Dancing School* near you and learn a jig to teach your party guests!

*Please post pictures if any of you decide to do this one!

Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!

Mardi Gras Party Tips

Mardi Gras

Since not all of us can go to Mobile (where Mardi Gras started and the carnivals last a week!), we might as well try to recreate the spirit of ‘Fat Tuesday’ and the New Orleans parade on Bourbon Street in our respective parties wherever we may live. Here are a few tips to make for one exciting evening, February 16th!

Mardi Gras

Masked Ball Theme

  • Decorate with vibrant colors and carnival stripes. Try to find images, balloons, lights, garland, ribbons, feathers, glitter, beads, and decor that resemble or give the essence of the Bourbon Street characters such as Medusa, Hydra, the Sphinx and Unicorn.

  • Invite guests to dress up and wear brilliant colored and ornate costumes with masks. Mardi Gras official colors and symbolism: green (“faith”), gold (“power”) and purple (“justice”).

  • Serve a table of hors d’oeuvres with gumbo, cornbread, jambalaya, red beans and rice, dips and vegetables, and, for the dessert bar, Gourmet Cookies.

We wish you all a very exciting and safe Mardi Gras party!
