That looks/sounds sooo good. I'm going to have a party soon, I'll definitely have to try this.

Did you double or triple the recipe to get the same amount as shown in your pictures?

edit: Nevermind! I just read this part "This is the amount made from this recipe. And in this shot the salsa had not been mixed."

I was just confused because you have a picture with 4 peeled kiwis instead of 2 like the recipe calls for.

Wow, the curls look good before and after work! Especially considering you didn't use any products and that your hair is so long. Long hair usually weighs down curls faster than shorter hair.

I have somewhat of a natural curl, but it only comes out if I air dry, which I don't have the time for in the morning. Even if I go to bed with my hair wet, it's usually only about a 50% chance that the curls will look good. I have MAJOR bed-head.

And I know how you feel about the cutting your hair thing. I've been thinking about bringing mine up to the top of my shoulders, but if this works out, I'll keep the length.

So I'm definitely going to be making these. Thanks for the link!

That's really cute on you! I love the color! Cheesy I'm not sure if my Wal-Mart's getting rid of their fabric section, although there is a huge, unexplained sale of fabric going on tomorrow.....  Embarrassed

That's probably an indicator that they are getting rid of the fabric section. It's supposed to happen at my hometown walmart some time within the next couple of years and that they would have a huge sale to get rid of whatever they have in stock. They said it was to make more room for the party stuff.

Anyways, I loooove the jacket! Too bad it's already getting into the high 70's where I live. Sad

I just bought some new american apparel shirts. One of them is the same color as your's! I wore it on saturday and got a stain on it too. Haha! If it doesn't come out, I'll do this.

Did you just use a bleach/water solution in a spray bottle like in the video?

Anyways, the shirt looks really good that way.

I wish I had thought to look on craftster for a good eggplant recipe! I bought an eggplant earlier on a whim because I'm trying to eat more veggies. I went back to the grocery later on with my boyfriend so he could buy his own groceries and ended up buying some stuff to make ratatouille. The ratatouille doesn't sound as yummy as this. lol.

I'll have to try this recipe next week when I can go back and buy all the ingredients!

I totally feel you on the wanting to pause thing. I've been losing weight for the past few months now. I've lost a little over 40 pounds, but I've still got another 30 to go. There are so many things I want to make but I keep putting them off, not wanting to spend time making something only to have it not fit later. I've decided to at least make a couple of skirts for the time being though!

And now after seeing your lovely dresses, I think I'm gonna get Vogue 8425!
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Stacked Enchiladas on: September 23, 2007 08:59:17 PM
This is basically an enchilada casserole. My mom found a recipe online a few years ago but she can't remember where now. She's been making it for so long she's kind of adapted it and made it her own.

I moved out for school last month and this is definitely the meal I miss the most. I had her email me the recipe and figured I'd share here.

I'm not sure what the exact ingredients the original recipe calls for but this is what my mom uses and I love it.

She uses one of those 3-qt. glass pryrex dishes, I think. I have a smaller one so I'll have to cut the recipe down quite a bit. Also, I use turkey meat for everything so I'll probably try this with turkey and see how it turns out.
This is kind of a 'play it by ear' recipe.  You can add as much cheese, enchilada sauce, meat or tortillas as you want.

1-1.5 lb hamburger meat
1 lb of chili meat
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt
2 6oz-8oz packages of cheese (I use two cheeses either:  American, swiss, Colby, Monterrey jack or mild cheddar.  Usually it's American and another type) shredded
1-2 cans Old El Paso enchilada sauce (mild, medium or hot)
Corn tortillas (I like to use Mission tortillas because they're not as thick)

Brown both meats together and drain. Add 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, 1 tsp ground cumin and 1 tsp of salt.

Spray the bottom and sides of glass dish with whatever kind of oil you prefer.

Spread a thin layer of Old El Paso enchilada sauce on the bottom of pan.
Cut the tortillas in half and add a layer on top of enchilada sauce.
Add a layer of the meat then a layer of cheese.

Repeat process from enchilada sauce, tortillas, meat and cheese.

It's usually about 3 layers, depending on the size of the dish. On the last layer, after the meat and cheese go ahead and add one last layer of enchilada sauce.

Cook about 40-45 mins @ 400 degree.  Place closer to the bottom rack.

You'll know it is ready when the edges start bubbling and the cheese is melted.

I hope that covers everything.
