So we’re 18 days into September and I haven’t gotten around to my projects yet… I did have a few posts last week, but those were spontaneous, not part of the plan. I’ve usually not spontaneous at all, but after composing a blog post in my head in the span of a 12 minute walk, I figured it must be something important to me and that I should write it.
Anyway, here’s recipe number one: enchiladas. I used the enchilada recipe in Shauna Niequist’s book Bread and Wine. (Spoiler alert: expect a blog post on that very book soon and very soon…) This book is fabulous and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone. But that’s another blog post for another time.
We had these enchiladas one night when we experimented with a “dinner party” for the first time. We’ve had many, many people over for many, many meals, but this one was a touch different. We invited two of our favorite couples who we suspected would bond over a common love of board games. Happily, we ate enchiladas, chatted, and played a few board games. It was quite lovely and I’d love to do it again.
But anyway: back to the enchiladas.
They were the perfect combination of delicious, filling, and simple to make. They also passed my test of not too many ingredients. Suffice to say we will make this again. Bread and Wine also provides this recipe as a good one to make for new moms, grieving families, or in any other “bring food as a ministry” opportunities. I certainly agree.
Here’s what we did:
And then we popped it in the oven and it baked. Then we ate it and it was delicious!
It was more of a layered, lasagna-esq enchiladas as opposed to a rolled up sort of enchilada. I am excited to try more recipes from this book and to continue working on my September goals.
