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!

10 Reasons It Suck’s To Be In Your 20’s

So I thought I would make a list of 10 reasons why it sucks to be in your 20’s.  Now, I’m not saying that everything about your 20’s sucks, but come on, there are somethings that really do suck about being 22, 25, 27 or whatever year you are in.  If you are somewhere between 20 and 29 years of age, there are for sure things that suck about it, don’t lie.  So here is my list of 10 reasons why it sucks to be in your 20’s:

1) Dating, if you didn’t meet that special person in high school or college, then you know what I’m talking about.

2) Snow does not mean a snow day.

3) Work, the reason you don’t get a snow day and also that thing you feel like you’re doing all the time and that is coming between you and sleep.

4)  You have to be cool. I don’t care who you are, there is this unspoken pressure that once you turn 20 you must be cool for the next 10 years. Because once you turn 30 there is no way you can be cool. I blame hipsters and the Kardashians for this.

5) Car problems.  Your cars transmission could care less about the number in your bank account, it’s going to break when it wants to, just hope you’re 30 when it does.

6) You still get acne. I thought this went away once I turned 20, I was wrong.

7) Debt, do I need to say more?

8 ) You are still treated like a child. For some reason every person older than you in your family will not see you as an adult until you are 30. Even if you are living on your own, they just won’t, deal with it.

9) You can’t drink or party like you used to.  So stop taping those 40’s to your hands and trying to be Edward 40-Hands.

and lastly,

10 ) The years go by faster, no really they do. I mean wasn’t it just January 1st? Now Christmas tress are up? What the fuck!?!

And there you have it folks.

Enjoy.
