That's what I felt like today. I did a lot of cooking today..I AM a domestic Goddess....
We picked three ridiculously HUGE zucchini from our garden and I made zucchini bread..zucchini pineapple bread to be exact. It is good stuff too. I made like four loaves. T took one to work to share, we have two for the house and I gave one to my parents.
For dinner I made an old favorite of mine. My mom used to make it when I was a kid and its what I always wanted for my birthday dinner. Cheese Enchiladas. Mary Murphy's Enchiladas, to be exact. MM was a woman that was married to one of my dad's coworkers, and she made these...and gave my mom the recipe, so we always call them "Mary Murphy's Enchiladas and they are delicious.
And because I kind of like all of you, I'm sharing the recipe. Here what you need:
Cottage (or Ricotta) Cheese
Red Enchilada Sauce
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Did I mention that this is REALLY easy? Oh, "its really easy". There.
You mix 1 lb of sour Cream
with 1 lb of Cottage Cheese
add one small can of Green Chilies (chopped up or already diced)
and throw in a buttload of Shredded Cheese...use as much as you like.
Mix all this up really good.
In a hot pan lightly fry (very lightly) about 10 flour tortillas
In each warm tortilla place some of the cheese filling, roll up tortilla and place in baking dish
Once the dish is full of deliciously stuffed tortillas, pour the enchilada sauce all over all the enchiladas.
Then spoon left over cheese mixture over the enchiladas and top with another buttload of cheddar. Top with black olives (I did not do this).
My kids like this recipe too. The boys threatening to eat all the fruit if dinner wasn't done SOON.
Bake at 400 for about 40 minutes, until hot through and cheese is melted and bubbly.
Oh, and this stuff ROCKS the next day heated up in the microwave.
