I was at work for 9 hours today (normal enough.) I spent no less than 8 hours and 47 minutes of that time staring at my computer screen (not normal.)
I was crazy busy all. day. long. but finally tore myself away and headed straight out the door on a run as soon as I got home. The weather is splendid right now – hot sun + cool air = PERFECT running conditions!
It was slow going, as my legs felt like 500lb logs, but I think it was nature’s way of telling me "slow down and stay awhile!" Ok, nature. You win. This time!
Came home and got started on that recipe I told you about this morning – Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas!
This recipe combines shredded chicken breast,
sautéed onions & garlic,
diced green chilis,
green Tobasco sauce (original recipe called for cayenne pepper,)
red enchilada sauce,
and cheddar cheese.
Mix it all up,
and roll ~1/4 cup filling in a corn tortilla (original recipe called for flour tortilla.)
Top with cheese and bake!
Row after row of cheesy, savory goodness!
My Mom’s enchiladas are beef, so these can’t beat those ’cause they’re different (and I would never admit that something beat Mom’s, right?) but they’re good, mmkay? REALLY. REALLY. GOOD!
I heart corn tortillas, and this light filling really let the tortilla texture and flavor shine through. LOVE THESE!
His & Hers (ps look at Ben’s little foot patiently waiting for his plate to be done being photographed so he can dig in!! hehehe )
Oh, I got my ‘bou today! Small, iced caramel Northern Light latte. "Northern Light" is code for skim milk and sugar free syrup. GTK!
The drive through at the location I went to was seriously in the middle of the woods – very approps for Caribou’s log cabin themed indoor decor.
Seriously, I always like drinking my Caribou coffee in the store when I can because it feels like I’m tucked away in some cozy mountain side lodge.
Alllrighty. If you’ll excuse me, I have to go stare at a book or the sky or something before my cornea permanently adheres to my computer screen!
Have a good night!
