If you don’t care for cilantro and spicy things, or if you’re opposed to green foods in general, here’s your hall pass – you’re excused for today. The rest of you, please remain in your seats for the duration of the ride.
For as simple as these enchiladas are to make, I am absolutely blown away by how delicious they are. Truly. I’m mad for them, I tell you! MAD!! A couple beautiful aspects of the dish: Sendik’s has already done the dirty work of roasting a perfectly good chicken for you. Also the sauce, which tastes bright and lovely and totally homemade, is nothing more than two cans of enchilada sauce and a hefty bunch of fresh cilantro, pureed in the blender to an irresistible, gorgeous green. If you like it hotter, toss in a jalapeno for good measure. I might try that next time.
There’s a darling Mexican cantina on Pewaukee Lake called Seester’s. It’s a cute little spot with sidewalk dining, just across the street from the public beach. The nice people at Seester’s keep big bowls of fresh water on the sidewalk for all the thirsty dogs that pass by – their owners clutch dripping ice cream cones in one hand and leashes in the other.
Seven super-short school days to go before summer vacation begins, and the countdown is on! Is it just me, or does it seem like there’s a LOT to cram in before next Wednesday arrives?! We’ve gotta get our kids through field day, picnics and class trips; help ‘em wrap up last minute projects and study for final exams; attend music programs, graduations, dances, and carpool to a seemingly endless string of parties…the list goes on and on. You probably have a few fabulous functions of your own that I haven’t mentioned. Go ahead and pile ‘em on. We’re moms. We can deal.
I’ve said it here before: I have a problem with Mexican food. The problem of course, is that I could eat it nearly every single day of my life and never tire of it. I’ve passed this genetically on to my punks thanks to the cravings I had during my pregnancies. I dragged my poor husband out for steak enchiladas and guacamole nearly every weekend throughout the gestation of all three babies. They can be happy they got their love of Mexican food from me. Because I’m sure they’ll blame me later for other not-so-fun qualities I’ve passed on to them, attributes which we will not discuss here today – unless I have too many margaritas…hic!
I have a problem with Mexican food.
The problem is that I could eat it almost every da’gum day. I just got a sneak peak at the sale ad that comes out tomorrow – and let’s just say, if you’re like me (swimming in the deep end of the crazy pool over Mexican food), you’re gonna love it. So let’s kick off a little fiesta with the King of Mexican condiments: salsa!
The Sendik’s Fall Extravaganza is in full swing I’m still brimming with delicious blogging inspiration! I couldn’t wait to tell you all about this fantastic recipe!
Ugh, I feel like ten dollars this morning. This is not a good way to start the week.
I ate too much this weekend. And if you want the truth, I went overboard on the cocktails, too – we went to a really fun (LATE) dinner party on Friday, then out to the lake on Saturday, and had company on Sunday. The weather was gorgeous, and I just felt like livin’ it up and indulged just a teensy bit too much.
