more off the to-do list

Another day off yesterday, another day of things accomplished!

  • sweepered the house
  • 4 more loads of laundry done – all the baby stuff is now washed, dried, and put away!
  • grocery shopped
  • picked up and organized some more
  • renewed car registration (-$$$)
  • went to the bank (+$$$)
  • wrote thank you notes
  • cut Mosie’s nails (she looooved that)
  • cleaned the bathrooms
  • made enchiladas

Here’s the thing: I didn’t love the enchiladas.  I bought enchilada sauce and did NOT like the taste of it.  Do you make your own enchilada sauce?  If so, share the recipe please!

Today I’m back in the office but tomorrow I’m off again (still on the to-do: yardwork and cleaning the car… and lots of reading time!).  I am LOVING all these days off and getting so much accomplished!

  1. It’s not the standard red sauce, but Josh makes chicken enchiladas with tomatillo salsa that are SO good. Here’s the recipe:
    1 lb tomatillos, husked (get the brightest green ones you can find) – quarter the big ones
    1 white onion, sliced into big chunks
    4 garlic cloves
    2 jalapenos
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 cup chopped cilantro
    juice of 1/2 lime

    On a baking tray, roast tomatillos, onion, garlic, jalapenos for 12-15 mins. Put roasted veggies and all juices in a food processor. Add rest of ingredients and pulse mixture until well combined but still chunky.

  2. I totally agree—once I realized how easy it was to make enchilada sauce, I never went back! This is the recipe I use:

    Enchilada Sauce


    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup tomato paste
    1 3/4 cups vegetable broth
    3/4 cup water
    salt and fresh ground pepper


    In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium. Stir in cumin, flour and tomato paste. Cook, whisking, for 1 minute. Whisk in broth and water – bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 to 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.


  3. We had enchiladas for dinner last night to. I use store bought enchilada sauce and have no problems with it, so I have no problems with it. I think I’m going to use the recipe that Angela @ Making Food for Friends posted, that looks good to me.

    I need your enjoy to get stuff done. I have a couple of days left with no kids and so need to use that time to get the house cleaned, instead I’m going to trivia with friends tonight.
