~I Should Do This Every Day~

Tonight's scheduled dinner was Green Chicken Enchiladas, with made-from-scratch enchilada sauce. I decided to start earlier than my usual 5 pm and actually got my casserole made by 11:15 am.



I should do this every day. It was so incredibly easy to get dinner ready tonight--just turn the oven on and throw the casserole in!

Every time I use the crockpot I think the same thing...it makes dinnertime so much less stressful to pre-plan! I agree!

Yes, the crockpot is another thing I "forget" to use. But it makes dinner sooooo much easier!

How very true! Whenever I start preparing earlier than normal for our supper meal: I don't feel rushed and actually enjoy making a meal; I feel like a good homemaker who has it all together; and I also wonder why I don't plan ahead more often!

I think I would have felt more like I had it all together if I had also done the dishes in the morning. ;)

Yum! I'm going to try your enchilada sauce! I keep trying homemade e.sauces and failing at them. This looks good!

Dell, I hope the sauce turns out well for you. The recipe doesn't say this, but really the secret for an awesome sauce is to SLOWLY saute the onions and garlic in a heavy-bottomed pan. I saute mine for about 20 minutes, while I prep the other ingredients. It makes the sauce have such a depth of flavor (onions which are sauteed quickly get bitter, but slowly sautee them and they turn sweet).
