Quarter-Life Cooking!

Once again it has been awhile but I am back and ready to mark one thing off of my list.

Thanks to my new love Pinterest I found a recipe for White Chicken Enchiladas.

Before going in the oven.

 

Here is the recipe if anyone wants to try them! (It’s from the blog Joyful Momma’s Kitchen)

Chicken enchiladas with green chili sour cream sauce

10 soft taco shells

2 cups cooked, shredded chicken

2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

3 Tbsp. butter

3 Tbsp. flour

2 cups chicken broth

1 cup sour cream

1 (4 oz) can diced green chillies

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9×13 pan

2. Mix chicken and 1 cup cheese.  Roll up in tortillas and place in pan.

3. In a saucepan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute.  Add broth and whisk until smooth.  Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly.

4. Stir in sour cream and chilies.  Do not bring to boil; you don’t want curdled sour cream.

5. Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.

6. Bake 22 min and then under high broil for 3 min to brown the cheese.

 

Fresh out of the oven!

 

I am still working on other parts of the list, I have still not found an “adult” wine I like and I still have not baked and eaten a whole cake yet, but I’m working on it!

Easy to make and so yummy!

Well I hope you enjoy the recipe and let me know if you try it!

63 Days And Counting

In 63 days I will be turning 25. That means that I only have 3 more months of being 24 and I feel like I have so much to accomplish in those 3 months to make up for the past 9 months that I have done nothing in. Therefore I have made a list of a few things I would like to do before turning the big 25.

They are:

1. Find out what kind of “adult” wine I actually like. (my sweet red is just not “adult” enough)

2. Accept the way I look.

3. Get blackout drunk one last time.

4. Learn to cook 2 new dishes.

5. Improve and strengthen important relationships.

6. Not get pregnant.

7. Bake a cake and then eat the whole cake.

8. Make a snow angel.

9. Make my zombie apocalypse survival plan.

10. Blog more.

I think that will do for now. I hope to blog about any that I do that I feel are blog worthy (already working on #10).

Please feel free to suggest any thing to add to my list or help me start building my list of things to do once I turn 25!

I’m Back!

Well, hello there blog!

As you can see I have been gone for some time now and I would like you and all who read this blog to know that I have not forgotten you and that I am back.  Why such the long absence? Well, it’s a mix of finals, the Holidays and a much needed break from technology.  But I can let you know that I am back and ready to keep you up today on my quarter-life and try to help you all that might be going through the same thing.

As you all know it is now 2012 and a big year for me.  Why you ask?  In 66 days I will be 25. Yes, this is the year I turn 25.  I will officially be in my quarter-life.  And all though I’m not turning 16, 18 or 21, I still feel like this is going to be a big birthday.  I mean come on, I can now rent a car and my insurance goes down, I call both of those things a big win.

So, once again I’m sorry for being gone for so long and I can’t wait to fill you all in on my quarter-life crisis!
