So I’m a bit behind on my dinner posts.. I’m having a bit of trouble shaking the whole lazy thing..
Last night, we had this:
The Pioneer Woman – Enchiladas
As usual, I would like to provide some commentary..
When you ask your husband to get red enchilada sauce, make sure he promises that he will get it.
We used green enchilada sauce because someone got green sauce even though it said red, and was too lazy to go back and get the right kind. It was good with the green sauce, but I’m sure it would’ve been even better with the red.
When it says to add oil and flour and whisk together, put the oil in and then slowly whisk the flour in..if you don’t do that, you will have clumps of oil and flour, and they will not turn back to a rue like mixture.
Be careful when you fry the tortillas..I continuously ripped them when pulling them from the pan. And then the anger pursued..
When it’s time to dip the tortillas in the sauce, let your husband do it bare handed; it’s too hard to dip with the tongs and you will get red headed (if you don’t know what that is, you didn’t grow up with a red headed grandpa, and you missed out) and he will insist on just doing it that way. Fine by me..
Also, when it comes time to wrap the enchiladas, let your husband do that too; you will get red headed again. Your husband will laugh; you will not.
Overall, the struggles are totally worth it, because the enchiladas were amazing! And I was nice enough to give my husband the left overs for lunch the next day.
Now, for this evenings dinner. One of my favorite snack dips combined with pasta. Can’t go wrong there.
The Pioneer Woman – Spinach Artichoke Pasta (yes, it’s a real thing!)
I think that’s all you need to know, really. It was super simple to make and super yummy to eat!
